    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.

    The walker in the woods has gotta stink man. Some huntin trip. This one will go down in the books. Oh well, at least he will have a bunch of potted meat.

    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!

    Maybe The Duke could loan him his walker.

    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.
