    You old guys know what those tiny dark spots on this deer hide. Don't you just love "hinters"? 20180510_203241.jpg

  3. Fleshing machine blade ruin-er.
    Absolutely nothing that pisses me off more than hitting that BS with a new blade or old for that matter. Especially when you didn’t know they were there. Its a safe bet to say I will have at least 4 ever dang year.

    #4 birdshot. Damned steel shot on top of it. As Glenn said, there's only one way to find them: when your round knife pings.

    I usually don't see it in deer but bears from all over the country and Canada for that matter usually seem to have some "implants". I flesh on a beam but I can imagine what it does to your fleshing blade.

    I did a monster 15 point buck once that's muzzle was full of birdshot. Yep found it with the fleshing machine!

    What kind of idiot does that? You most likely won't kill the deer outright and will probably blind it.

    I think some are shot to get them out of their garden or shrubs around the house.

    Could be but this was a state park boundary area with no gardens.

    Never understand people who shoot at a deer with birdshot. Wasn't that long ago I had one hit me in the cheek while shaving. Narrowly missed my eye. I have worn glasses for the last number of years because of this. And oh cant see worth the crap either
