Nice Tim. I use a Marlin .444 lever action rifle myself with a 2.4x Leupold scope. I can shoot left or right handed and the lever action lets me cover about 300 degrees from a tree stand. Got a nice sized doe two Saturdays ago. Had the back straps trimmed and vacuum bagged and in the freezer about an hour after we started skinning. Ground the rest. Sounds like you'll have a lot of venison this year (3 deer).

Just bought a new freezer on black friday to hopefully start stocking up on game (rabbits game of choice)
Nice range on the shot :)

Jealous! Finding venison isn't easy in the big city, and once you do find it it's insanely expensive. I treat myself a couple of times a year or so, but at over $35 a pound it'll never become a staple. Maybe I need to get over my fear of the country (bugs!) and take up hunting.

WOAH! that's expensive city boy! Usually venison isn't that highly priced where I am, the trouble is just finding a butcher who carries it on a regular basis.

I know we used to get Elk and Venison roasts for a game dinner from a place out west, so you can mail order it, but it will probably be pricey with the shipping and stuff. We found a place local in CT to us that actually raises and butchers Bison; we can get it for almost half the price as the Venison from out West! Call around to some local butchers and see if they would know where to get it; most stores will probably charge a ton! I think I saw the ground Bison already pre packaged in 1# packs for like $6.

My local butcher is great and they can get it for me, but only at those crazy prices. (i'm in NYC) I have a friend in West Virginia who's a social worker, and there they give away venison that hunters donate, because they have too much. Maybe I need to make a road trip with a biiiig cooler.

This is the place in CT, $22 a pound for Bison Tenderloin, plus shipping. Ground and other cuts are even cheaper!
