Re: Deer

 Thanks for the invite, Linda;  this is probably the best part of this community:  it is such a hospitable place...everyone for the most part, is so welcoming to one another...I know people might find this hard to believe, but I am a rather major introvert when it comes to my personal life and don't count very many people as my friends...comes from having been a total nerd/geek in high school I think and my absolute love of solitary activities like reading, gardening, thinking...but suddenly, thanks to this list, I now have friends all over the country...makes me feel like a social butterfly for the first time in my life.  Thanks guys!

You'd pay way more than that if you wentout and bought a steer.And if you went to the supermarket to buy anequivalent amount of meat, you'dbe looking at 4 or 5 times the amount you'dpay for a steer on the hoof.  Sodepending on how much your friend spent ontransportation, etc. he probablycame out pretty good on the cost per poundof meat, plus he had thatexhilarating experience of the great outdoors.Next time you're in SouthDakota, drop down into Wyoming for a visit--we'reright next door!Linda> Whenwe went on vacation this past summer to S.Dakota, our biggestdisappointment(the only, actually) was not getting to see a bull elk...sawplenty offemales and young but no bulls!
