Just got back from West Texas. Our group decided that we would try to grow our herd for a few years. So we are letting the young/healthy bucks go and only culling the genetic defects out (spikes, 4 pts) so they won't reproduce. So i took 2 different 4 pts that were standing right next to nice 8 pts. It was painful. It seemed so wrong. I hope I never have to do it again. But I got a freezer full of meat and sausage being made. I grilled the tenderloins last night.
I heard Hokie Gajan talking about this:
Since I had many backstraps I decided to give it a try. I'll let you know how it comes out after I get it.
