I don’t know about old deer meat, but have you ever tried young deer meat? The biggest challenge is keeping the fawn from kicking the crap out of you on the ride out. They will tread water much longer than you’d expect, and it’s usually right as they really start to struggle that the shark makes his move. That’s what my friend said.

And no, I’m not serious.

There is no shortage of shark bait already in the ocean and I can think of better uses for the deer. However, to anyone that wants to bring up the “only use local bait” argument, I have honesty seen many deer swimming across saltwater tidal creeks and even open water sounds before. They’re actually quite agile swimmers. In every case it was multiple deer, not solo. Probably smart on the deer’s part because then you don’t have to out-swim the sharks. You only have to out-swim the other deer.

live cats are easier to handle and take less duck tape

You can put the ground meat in stockings like chicken livers for catfish bait, should stay on the hook real good then

Part of your answer depends on how closely you follow the IGFA rules, This is purely a personal choice. The IGFA rules prohibit using mammal as chum or bait with the exception of hair, or pork rind as part of a lure.

Lot of guys keep a full freezer of fish, deer, pigs, etc. so they can brag about the full freezer. You have shelves for each year and didn't eat this for 4 years.. Sounds like you may be one of those guys

I try to keep deer on a one year turnover, pork on a six month turnover, and fish on a 90 day turnover. It still happens though and find something from years ago occasionally.

Yeah, I bet he posts pictures of the inside of his freezer on Facebook and instragram. Probably shares a video every time he opens the door on snapchat too....

If it's on a special shelf you would thing the 4 year old meat would be seen right away?

Pretty much and idiotic statement


Never even discuss what is in my damn freezer, just some stuff that got shuffled in an old freezer and when I bought new one put on bottom shelf.

should have put on top shelf to use first.

Have some other stuff in there I BOUGHT(if that makes you bitches feel better ) that needs to be thrown out as well



you people kill me

You guys know that there are more deer in North America than at any other time in history. When the populations get too high the rates of Lyme Disease, Fatal deer vs automobile incidents, and severe crop damage, along with damage to protected and rare flora go thru the roof. That doesn't even take into account the higher levels of wasting diseases among the species itself. In many states deer are nearing, if not surpassing sustainable population levels. This leads to the increase of nuisance predators. Next time a Coyote chomps on your family cat thank the over-abundance of deer.

If the deer is harvested legally who has the right to say how the harvested uses that animal? He could use it for a piniata for all I care.

You would be correct if You typed this in 99-2004
since the coyote breeding program was complete and coyotes are now in every county deer numbers have plummeted. Especially in and around cities , the plan all along. . I know far to well about lymes unfortunately. If many hunters knew of all the diseases some even from eating deer they wouldn’t hunt. That’s coming from a 39 year hunter/taxidermist.

Why not? A doctor down here used an amputated foot in his crab trap once...

The only deer I shot last year was a button fawn, I thought it was a little doe but when we collected it my buddy says "Your doe has a dick!" Sure enough, had nubs on his head shorter than his fur. Damn thing is so tender you don't need a knife, I'm jut lucky my uncle didn't make me get a shoulder mount.

I don't have population numbers to confirm or deny your statement but I bought my WI tags this week and pulled four antlerless tags to go with my buck tag. Some areas might be hurting but lower WI doesn't seem to feel it.

No one would shit a brick cause no one cares about the hogs lol, but we sit in tree stands all year waiting on deer. If you have 4 year old deer meat you just don't like eating deer
