  • Game is Food

    Reading Stranger's February Females thread once again reminded me that Alaska's game animals are food. Many forget that hunting originated as a way to get food, not to get your name in some kind of a record book.

    In that vein, I'm starting a thread dedicated to the notion that Game is Food! Your pictures are welcome. I'm gonna start it off with pictures of a deer meat hunt some friends made a few years ago. Some of the animals were killed by proxy for some of the local elders and some for the hunters themselves. Then they were processed and delivered. Soon after we had a couple parties in which game meat and seafood were prominently featured. That's what it's all about.

    This will be pic heavy and require a few posts.

    First, a couple pickups loads of deer are brought from the boat to the shed for skinning.

    After skinning, the deer are taken to a garage for butchering.

          Now the good part! Ribs simmering on the wood stove, and a plate featuring the ribs and a Thai (spicy) venison salad.

                              Good thread, twodux. Although I savor the meat from every harvest, this thread brought to mind three somewhat recent hunts where the primary memory is focused on the meat the kill provided. The first two are from when my sister had cancer. She went through three years of near continual treatment, and during two of those years she had Tier II caribou permits. Going through chemo and radiation during one year, and flying down to San Francisco every other week for a clinical trial the next, she physically could not go afield herself. In addition, she has three kids to feed, so having a freezer of healthy, clean meat was of particular importance to her. Apart from the money issue (which was huge), her digestive system couldn't handle beef or chicken due to the chemicals contained within them. A stomach on chemo is a picky beast, so I went to get her a caribou those two falls. I don't know that I ever posted the pics here, as neither animal was much to brag about with regards to size. The first year all I could find was a cow. I wanted to find her a larger animal, but in the end it came down to what was there and what would put food on her table. On a cool sidenote, this was the first caribou hunt my wife accompanied me on, and it was a wonderful experience for the two of us.
