Buck season or really just deer season in general has filled my mind these past few weeks. Seems I can think of nothing else. I am very excited about using my new CVA Wolf 50 cal inline muzzle loader for the first time. Muzzle loader hunting and shooting are all new to me and I have been doing all the reading and research I can and have fallen in love with it so far. I know that love will be even stronger when I take a deer.
I ordered a book from amazon that has taught me so much and made me really think about the importance of taking an animal. The book is titled " Primitive Technology II Ancestral Skills". In our lives today hunting is mostly done for sport and nothing more. The importance of taking an animal for food, clothing and tools is an idea and way of life that many have forgotten. This book re-teaches these skills, because what was once a way of life and a skill that was used daily has been lost to so many of us, myself included. I have really enjoyed learning all the "new to me" skills taught in this book and would recommend it to everyone that has an interest in learning these all important skills.
You may remember a few posts back I posted pics of the wonderful gift that was given me by my friend and fellow blogger and prepper, YeOldFurt. He send me some pants made by brain tanning the hide of an animal taken during hunting season. YeOldFurt also has a very good article that can be found here about how this process works.
If I am lucky enough to take a deer this season I will use it all to the best of my ability. I will brain tan the hide, use the bones to make some tools and will of course eat the meat. This is the way to honor the animal that gave its life that you may prosper. It has given its life that you may have food to eat, clothes to wear and tools with which to work with. Honor that animal for its sacrifice and you will be rewarded.
