This particular deer was shot in 2016, I just do not keep deer meat(or anything in my freezer) longer than 2 yrs.

IF I thought it was ok I would just donate it to local Haven of Rest Ministries which has an office right next door to my office bldg . But I can not donate something I would not eat . Just wrapped in plastic and butcher paper.

don't know anyone useing it for fish bait I do know an old waterman that will use venison in his crab pots & says it works great. I also know a guy that uses cheap chicken hotdogs for catfish bait. I kill a lot of deer & with older venison in my freezer I make jerky or give to the poor folks in my neighborhood

We used a frozen block of chicken tortilla soup for pinfish Chum once. Not sure if my friend was just cleaning out his freezer but it worked same as block Chum.

I'm taking all my venison - some at 2 years - and mixing with 50% chuck to make my world famous venichuck hot dogs. It'll total about 20-25 pounds and I promise you no one will turn one down. Talk about delicious!

I never kill anything I wont consume. I once went duck hunting with some buddies. Tried to eat a duck that night and hated it. Never went duck hunting again. Why dont you give it away when its fresh killed so someone who appreciates it can consume it. I kill one buck every year and all meat gets consumed by June.

Turned? Burnt? Soup? Shouldn't make assumptions pal.

Talking about mostly 1 year old meat that was well packaged made into a giant pot of chili. Good chili but a little bland and mild for my personal taste because I don't want tear up their stomachs. I always try a cup to see how it is. I think the people that work the soup kitchen save it for themselves because they always put it to the side. I guess it's ok because many of them are homeless residents or volunteers. Anyway, they've never complained.

I wish I had extra vension. I have to ration it every year. Only allowed to kill 2 a year. I could eat a deer a month easy.

I never have enough. I start to feel greedy when I hoard the last few steaks.

Don't even get me started on when the elk starts to dry up. I didn't kill one last year. Flubbed a stalk. Down to hardly anything.

Let me clarify for those that THINK I waste meat

I am only talking 8-10 packs of burger and a couple of roasts, not a whole damn deer


yes we eat everything I kill with exception of wild hogs (stated earlier I leave them laying where they drop or drag them off in a ditch with atv) .

Daughter/SIL also come by and get some out of our freezer every couple weeks.


Just a small amount I am looking at doing this with

Truth is deer does not work well for shark or crab bait, not oily enough, it is very lean. Even a fresh kill (ie hitting the truck on way to the ramp) did no better at attracting sharks than the oily fish chum. racoon will work as crab bait as it has more oil, but still no where as good as bunker or mackerel.

Make jerky with the deer to take it on the boat for your shark fishing trip.
Buy good bunker or mackerel shark bait / chum

30 years ago I worked with an old guy who had a friend that trapped crawfish. He said that his friend used mostly road kill to bait his crawfish traps.

what a waste. I will not run over an animal unless I am going to eat it on the spot.

for the guys on the soap boxes, why is it OK to use bluefish or xxx for bait/chum but not deer? how is one a 'waste' but the other is not?

Do you have to get a tag for a bluefish?

Nope. Don't have to get a tag for deer either in AL. But you have to get a hunting license for deer.... just like a fishing license for bluefish.

I knew exactly where this thread was going when he first posted.....

To all the hater keyboard warriors, you need to get off your high horse's. I bet you've thrown out old chicken, bacon, lunchmeat, etc. There's a good "stone throwing" statement from a very old book that applies perfectly to this situation. How about you answer the man's question or try and refrain from saying anything at all.....

Ever meet someone that should take there own advice? ^

I never said there was anything wrong with using bait. I was just pointing out that deer are regulated different than most fish but your from AL so explaining something to you is a waste of time.

Getting it from the upstate to the coast seems like more of a hassle than it is worth... You don't want it thawing out.

For any non-SC person on this thread; we have 4 hunting zones in SC. The season starts August 15 in zone 3. 8/15 - 1/1 - no separate archery or primitive weapon season; we have a lot of deer. I'm not promoting wanton waste, but who hasn't had a frozen item get buried in the freezer and sit past its shelf-life.

Classy

The high horse comment was primarily directed at barrel's comment.......

Have a blessed day!!!
