    Default Pictures of the fattest Moose,Deer,Caribou,Elk,Bison etc you have ever killed

    If any of you have time would you be willing to post pictures of the fattest game animal you have ever killed except bear. What is the highest amount of backfat/suet any of you have ever gotten off your animals ?

    Doubtful many here take pics of the back fat. Woulda got a 3 page thread in 10 minutes if you had asked for the biggest antlers, body, skull, etc.

    We weigh every package of meat we put into our freezer. 903 pounds of meat went into the freezer from one mature bull moose. I don't eat the fat, the pounds of meat is what counts for me.

    I have read a lot about Eskimos and Native Americans of the north and how much they relied on fat, and apparently at times there could be up to 80 pounds of back-fat and around 30 pounds of suet on some of these moose. I was interested to know if this was still something that could be found nowadays .

    Fat deer. I cut over 2" of fat off his rump with my filet knife. It was my kid's first deer. He was still chewing his dinner and was full of grass and flowers from his mouth to his butthole.

    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    Fat Beluga




    Blubber rendering to oil




    Good clean food. Thats the Real "Trophy"
    Natural and lean, as Caribou have fat for an insulation layer, like Seals and such, and the meat has little fat coursing through it, like Beef. This fat is nessarry when you have a high proine diet.
    What screws people up is the hidden fats in fryed foods and snack stuff. Add those to a diet of meats and fat and your gonna get fat.
    For all the fats we eat, nobody in this house is overweight.

    Thats enough, I gotta eat now.....

    Then have some Moose


    We dont do it often, but we can do Moose.

    Might do a Moose soon anyway, just need freezer room. The woman, she has it full of Berrys, more than 45 gallons, so all the Caribou these last few days are drying with the fish.
    Seen about 50 musk ox in three herds, and all the Bulls weve seen are steppin' back an' butting heads, as well, the oldest son help'd butcher an ox in Deering at the start of the Month, and it had 'rut' smelling about it, so my Ox can wait.
