    Woodnut is on a hunting trip and I heard thru the grape vine he got himself a big ole deer. He wont be back until after this weekend but we will be waiting to hear the story.....I also heard something about him getting his foot caught in a trap of some kind but I am not sure. I hope he is ok.

    I spoke with Woodnut today. The trap caught this big toe so he's been on a walker thru the Tennessee mountains. It's working OK and the only time he falls is when the walker gets caught on a tree root. He hopes his new handicap won't affect his grip building.

    The Marlin he won a few months ago is working flawlessly.

    He killed a huge Deer. It took four big men to load it and five men to unload it at the processor. He wanted a recipe I got from 358Winchester as he's having the whole Deer ground up. He plans on making a few hundred Lbs of Potted Meat. I'm sure about 50 lbs will be donated for one of our giveaways.

    He's still hunting for the next couple of days and will be home soon to tell the rest of the story.

    Everyone wish him good luck.

    358 Winchester posted a lot of Potted Meat recipes here. I'm sure they will be put to good use. We may even get lucky enough to have some at the next TFF BBQ.

    Ouch! A trap bit him in the toe? And now having to negotiate the woods with a walker? Shoot, he's a lot tougher than me! This will certainly be a trip he'll remember and tell stories about!

    It seems he does have a few pygmies with him. Gun bearers and such. They are also dragging an outrigger canoe to ford the many creeks and rivers. This is a big hunt.

    Todd, that walker could be dangerous if it got away from him coming off one of those mountains. Especially of he was carrying out another Deer.

    That must be the all wheel drive model.

    Getting a big deer should offset quite a bit of pain I would think, congrats to Woodnut, I am way overdue on putting some venison on the table, way overdue,

    Nothing spoils a good hunt than having an accident. Get better pardner.

    of the deer and not the big toe.

    Sorry to hear of the accident in the trap though. Hope it's not too bad, but the pygmies should definitely help.

    The big deer must have been a rush for him. When the adrenaline gets pumping that is one of the most awesome feeling I have ever felt. The trap deal sucks, Hope he recovers from it quickly.

    I just got off the phone with Carl. It seems he made the walker from wood and he had already made wooden wheels for it. He made the whole thing using his pocket knife. It didn't work very well in the Tn mountains, the terrain is too rough. He gave the walker to the Pygmies who turned it into a cool skateboard. It can ride six of them at a time and also carry the outrigger canoe.
    The Pygmies were so grateful, they started killing Rabbits with poison darts from their blowguns. They skinned the Rabbits and made Carl some very warm, soft socks. The rest of the skins were stuffed in a hollow log which gave Carl another idea. Out comes the pocket knife !! He started off with a semi pegleg, lined with Rabbit fur. He says it was very comfortable but he didn't like the fact that one leg was now longer than the other and the up and down walk....so he made another one. He's taller and has has a much better view to look for Deer.
    Maybe he could sell his idea to Cabellas and make a fortune.
    He did complain about the Pygmies gaining weight from eating all those Rabbits.
    More as the info comes in.
