    Weighed the guts

    Have been swapping emails with an SD member re UK and Aus differences in hunting and related how I had a weigh up.

    I shot a 2 year old sambar stag last Friday evening and dropped the guts out at home after two mates helped lift him into the ute. ( dragged and cursed)Full guts from start to finish and then next morning weighed the whole lot after stuffing them in a poly feed bad.

    They weighed after 12 hours of being 'free' 80lbs on the dot.

    I am happy to shoot an 80lb deer never mind the guts weighing 80lb alone.

    Those Sambar can get to a serious size, what was his larder weight ?

    Cheers + ATVB

    No Idea Phillip,he still has his hide on.

    btw what exactly is 'larder weight' is that skinned ,head on/off etc etc as I am not conversant with all the UK terminology.

    Righteo...approximate weight of this deer may be 350 lbs in that state. Prob more as I take the neck off at the base instead of taking the head off at the joint.

    Here is a young fella 'walking' through a standard farm fence of roughly 4' in height. They are so powerful that they just stretch the wires,the top one is barbed too. I bet his guts weigh 80 lbs too!

    Stuff that for a carry out !! What is the meat like at the table John ? I have heard more than a few kiwis say it is very average at best. Maybe the different diet in Oz makes for a different end product

    Timbo if you are on Fish n hunt nz you will know of Shanks..he said when I fed him sambar for the first time " **** there is nothing wrong with that yum"
    I have read of kiwis saying its no good..perhaps you are right in that the deer are eating something that taints the meat..or they cant fugn cook ha ha.
    I have eaten it for years,rarely buy beef at all as the sambar veni is very good.

    Haha. Yeah, I know (of ) Shanks. Is he a pom? Think you could be right about the lack of cooking skills, certainly in some I know anyway. Unfortunately for you on this occasion, the worst cook I know is actually an Australian sheila married to a Kiwi mate of mine. She is currently over the ditch (poisoning) some old people for a living.
    I will have to try and get on a Sambar hunt and find out for myself to be sure
