Someone dumped the half-butchered carcasses of a large mature doe and two very small button-heads on the hill above my house. A true hunter wouldn’t have wasted enough meat to feed a family of five for 60 days. Out of these three deer, the yield of meat was about a third of what should have been taken.
These wannabes left three neck roasts, six shoulder roasts, six racks of ribs, more than half the back straps, six tenderloins and all the stew and burger meat that could have been processed. All this was wasted, perhaps by stupidity or just laziness. They left most of the best cuts. Whoever did this really needs to get a book on how to clean and butcher wild game.
I read the Alabama game laws, and two of these three animals were illegal kills. We need the young button-heads in this area for seed. That’s why there is a three-buck limit for the season. If too many bucks are taken, there won’t be enough for breeding in the years to come.
If they bought an Alabama hunting license, paid for ammunition, bought gas for their big 4-by-4, made payments on their monster tires (whoever left these carcasses left huge tire tracks) and spent their rent money on over-priced camo to look cool, they should have just saved that money to buy two packs of jerky, a moon pie and an R.C. Cola.
They would have come out a lot cheaper and not looked half as stupid by killing the young button-heads. People like this need to buy their meat at the supermarket and leave wild game for the true hunters who appreciate and respect it.
