It's that time of year. I have the freezer full and ready to process some meat. I was wondering if anyone hear has a good summer sausage recipe that they wouldn't mine sharing.
We went offshore with Impulse Charters Monday and absolutley slayed the wahoo. We caught 9 wahoo, 9 tuna, 8 trigger fish and I caught a really nice Sailfish. This was the best trip that I have ever been on, and there were only three of us. Fish are bitten fellas. We had a total of 427 pounds of fish. The weather was perfect. Cameron really knows how to put you on the fish. We lost way more than we caught thats how aggressive they were feeding. We had a total of 5 citation fish, 3 wahoos a 21 pound blackfin and my sailfish. One of the wahoos weighed in at 63 pounds.
I was looking forward to hunting this land since it was not being hunted. I woke up at 3:30 that morning and was wanting to get out there before the sun came up, but in my past experiences it is better to wait till about 8:30 or 9:00 during a full moon. I got to the land grabbed my climber and my bow and headed down the hill of this hard wood stand crossed the creek and came up the other side. I stopped and knocked an arrow real quick because I had a buck walking right towards me, he got about 15 yards from me and I wistled at him, he just stopped and looked at me. He was a small 7 or 8, I walked towards him and he bolted. At 9:00am I found my tree strapped on my viper and climbed about 20 feet knocked an arrow and sat down. I realized I needed to be a few feet higher, so I took one good step up.I was still facing the tree when I heard some thrashing going on. I slowly turned and knocked my arrow again. This giant stepps out from behind this dead fall at 60 yards. Man, my adrenaline meter went from 0 to tapped out in a snap.I couldn't believe how big this joker was. He kept walking so I grunted at him and he stopped and started giving this tree hell, then he just keep on walking, he slowly started to turn towards me. He made a big circle and came in down wind between me and this harvested tobacco field. When I saw him make that left turn that's when I saw how really big he was, my adrenaline meter redlined and my heart said hang on dude this is gona get rough. I quite looking at his rack and drew back my bow when he went behind this big white oak. I had one opening between two trees about two foot wide as he was walking behind the first tree I grunted at him in mid stride he stopped perfect in the kill zone. I will never forget the look of surprise on his face when I grunted, and he looked up at me. I released my arrow and saw the luminock smack and make that distict sound. He turned and bolted about a 90 yards and crashed. I was surprised that he had ran that far, but I had hit him high, just behind the shoulder.I looked at my watch it was 9:30. It took me awhile to regain my composure. I had to draig this joker out of the woods by myself and load him up in the back of my truck. I will tell you this. I would have gladly drug him a half a mile if I had to.I love it when a plan comes together. He was taken 9:30 am on 11/09 in Guilford county. My best one yet. SEMPER FI
