First ever beef. Huge learning experience.
1: Don’t use your son’s gun to make the kill shot. Discovered it shoots 3” low for me. A half mile chase and a .243 finished the job. Hopefully the stress didn’t ruin the meat.
2: A skinning cradle that I don’t have to bend over with is in my very near future!
3: A wheel barrel with a flat tire doesn’t help when trying to get the quartered beef in the cooler.
4: A 12” pruning blade on the saws all doesn’t always stay on track when halving the carcass.
Good learning curve. Thankfully I’m just grinding this wild heifer into burger. I’ll let her hang until next weekend and start grinding her up. May keep a few steaks just to see how a grass fed heifer straight off the cow tastes……
Can’t figure out how to upload the picture of the beef hanging in my cooler. Says it’s too large.
