Yeah, I felt naked without a yota. For few days.
Back to hunting for sure.
Squirrel, deer, and yotes.
Need couple deer for meat.
Try out this new coyote call I got.

Squirrel1...Yesterday morning, I put a deer front shoulder in the crockpot and last evening I started a dozen trays of deer jerky. Each slice of jerky is hand cut and it takes 2-3 hours to turn a deer into jerky, a couple of days to cure in my mixture of ingredients, and another 12-15 hours on the dehydrator. I give a bag full of jerky to the farmers who let me hunt on them. I'll be headed out to rabbit hunt tomorrow (Friday) with my buddy and his pack of beagles along with our .410 double barrels. I can reload a box of .410s on my single stage MEC loader for around $4 while it's nearly $20/box in the store, if you can find them to purchase. I've got 269, H110, 4227, and 2400 powders, several pounds of #6 shot, wads, and a couple hundred 2 1/2" as well as 3" shells, so I'm set for a long time. I always pick up any .410 empties I find at the gun range. When not taking a .410, I pick up a SXS 12 gauge hammer shotgun for which I handload with 2F black powder. It's a hoot to shoot and the rabbits don't seem to mind! A 20# turkey is currently in the oven for only 5 people, so I'll be looking for recipes for leftovers.

Technician1...I grew up with a SXS LeFever 20 gauge straight stock double trigger shotgun. My CZ Bobwhite .410 is configured the same way and I feel right at home with it. Some 30 years ago, I had a Remington 870 .410 which I sold after finding a SXS .410 Mario Beschi single trigger non-selective shotgun which I still use from time to time as well as my Winchester Model 37 single barrel .410. With rabbits, I trim off the meat from the hind quarters as with the back straps, pound them with a meat "hammer" before flouring/frying which removes any toughness. I fry the front legs as they are. Add some potatoes, gravy, and biscuits and you've got a meal.

That’s what I do. Give deer meat to include jerky to land owners who let me hunt. They smile when I approach them and say here are some of your fringe benefits.

I don’t dry my jerky usually but about 8 hours. If machine is full. I cut mine with fish fillet knife. You are right can be time consuming. Key to cutting jerky meat with fish fillet knife is have meat still frozen slightly. Meats stands up better for thinner cutting.
Jerky that is too dry I don’t Like. Hard to eat. Tougher.
I vaccum seal when it’s donw.

Cheers.
