Watched my wife take apart a deer like a Hillbilly Iron Chef

    I've seen my wife butcher about every kind of animal I've hunted and fished for. Ducks, Geese, Pheasant, Squirrel, Rabbit, even frogs and turtles. But I always had my deer processed by a pro (We didn't have the space or tools but now we do). Well today a friend hit a deer, so I went to the Sherrifs dept and got a permit and brought it home to her.

    I tell ya it was like Iron Chef Morimoto.... Whack! Slice! Chop! [insert hand grinder noise]! A couple hours later I've got a freezer full of neatly packaged and labelled steaks and roasts, plus some ground, a tongue, and a heart.

    Even after a decade together, she still surprises me sometimes. It's good to know she has the skill if it's ever needed post SHTF.

    She's a fair enough hunter on her own and a serious fisherman, but I'm still better at bringin it home or I might start feeling a little threatened. ;)

    Well, we don't think your weird, not yet anyway [LMAO]

    Now if I could get my wife to that, I would be in heaven, but at least I got her dad to teach me how to butcher a deer.

    Well, Tinas a bit under the weather after takeing a blow to the head recently (proof that housework is bad for your health lol), so hasnt been doing much while I butcher this week. Last time I went to butcher a couple pigs last month I shot 2 of them and hung them up. As I started on the first one she came over and grabbed my extra knife and started in on skinning the other. Usualy she takes care of most of the grinding and packages the meat as I cut it up.

    Since opposites attract that makes me normal, by default.
