Master Hand Grenade did it. On the very last day, in the very last hour of hunting season 2012, he bagged his deer! Saturday, Sir Knight and Master Hand Grenade set out one final time to test their hunting skills. As the afternoon drew to a close and twilight threatened, a doe came into view, turned broadside, and became sustenance for our family.
Sir Knight and Master Hand Grenade gutted the doe in the field (the coyotes have to eat too, ya know) and brought her home to hang and skin her. Over the years, we have found that a few good tools go a long way when processing game. First, of course, is a sighted-in rifle (that goes without saying), a handgun (just in case you have to finish the job), a sharp knife and the ever handy Wyoming saw.
