this was a few years back. We weren't sure how to hang the deer that year. No trees where we were at. So we took an extension ladder ontop of the RV her name was maudine. Anyway the really worked out for us. On the way home that year the rv battery kept dying and we had to jump start with the generator using a power supply for the ham radio. It took us a long time to get home that night. Replaced the voltage regulator and alternator then was fine. Hope to get some stories

Nice looking animals!

I don't know how you guys in warm-weather states deal with spoilage. Where I've hunted for the past 20 years, temperature, typically, isn't a problem. We've had trips where the mercury never reaches 32f with some years, a blizzard. Good news is that "beer drinkin' weather" is usually excellent.

ATM, I don't know where the hunting pics are stored. Imagine a beat-up old TT that the primary attribute is heat (and lots of it). Our party size ranges from 3-4, up to a dozen. We hunt with rifles on a Federally managed Wildlife Refuge. Human entrance is only during Firearm Deer Season. We have dragged many trophy bucks out of the Refuge. Some years, promiscuous hunting is allowed to thin the herds (Does and small bucks allowed, two or three tags available).

Lately, I go for getting my "internal batteries" recharged in the wilderness, more than for venison harvest. I'd be just as happy with a camera and binoculars than a 30.06 with a Leupold.

Good luck on your hunt!


Usually during the hunting season where we go the weather is usually in the low 30s to 40s one year it was in the 60s during the day. We just hung with ice bags inside the cavity for a few hours and butchered them up. That year we had a small deep freeze in a pickup truck because we knew it was going to be warm, so we butchered then froze. Made for a long day though.

We have even had some seasons in the teens. But mostly 30-50 for most of the season is average.

We hunt in the northern woods in Michigan every year. Our group usually consists of about 6-8 people. Each year, we designate a person to bring a meal for dinner such as chili, beef stew, etc.
I have been going to deer camp for about 6 years and it a fun time. My father in law has been at the same camp location for over 40 years.

That sounds like a good time. Ill give a little info on ours. We have a friend down state WV that owns a farm. We have been going down there for several years. The first year we went, we stayed in a dome tent and it was 6 degrees that night. Thats when we decided to get a trailer. So over the years the accommodations have changed but the good times keep on. I usually do the cooking, so my brothers have to do the dishes. There is usually 3-4 of us that go down on sunday before thanksgiving and come home wednesday.

We always have a great time while there and usually get a little meat in the process. This year my brither went down to check his camera last month and he is seeing quite a few bucks and black bear.

Good luck all.

Here is our camp in West Texas. Been hunting for 30 years. This is our first camp that is completely off grid. We are hunting in the mountains and are at least 3 miles from the nearest road and further from the next camp. We run a generator and have an on demand water pump from our storage tank. Setup our lights and a cleaning station. Pretty much call the comforts of a regular campsite. Really neat country out here but pretty wild. We have seen 3 mountain lions so far this year with two being less than 100 yrds from our camp.
