Zach's First Deer!





I guess the Boardman's have entered a new phase of existence. Hunting!!!! Dave took Ben and Zach out Saturday for youth hunt. Around 10:30, a six-point buck("non-typical"I'm learning the lingo) walked out about 50 yards from the stand. Zach dropped him with a single shot! You talk about excitement! My very laid-back husband called me and he was almost yelling into the phone!
Last night, our very committed friends, the McLeans came and showed us how to put up deer meat. I never dreamed I'd ever be doing this. If anyone out there in cyberspace has some tried and true venison recipes, please share.
Last week, I took Josh and Lauren Truitt to Youth Challenge in Indiana. They had a wonderful time. I went with my sister-in-law, Sarah Holden, to hang out at her house for a few days. I took Emily with me and she enjoyed playing with Uncle Paul and the pug, Lucy. She wasn't real sure about Uncle Paul at first. She told us she only liked Doctor dads, not computer guys. By the time we left, she and Paul were fast friends.

Congrats to Zach! I am so impressed that he got a deer. Just wondering if Josh had such luck on his "dear" hunt, or did he let his cousin Paul outdo him again? Heidi, you are the best! I don't think I could have done all that with that meat, but of course, I don't have as much invested in it. Thanks for posting the pics.

Way to go Zach! You did a great job. Sorry I don't know any recipes Heidi, but my husband is not much of a hunter. I really enjoy checking up on y'all.

I'm a little late in commenting, but "Way to go, Zach!" With my mother-in-law's help, I've come up with a few tasty dishes and tips. I'd be glad to share them with you! We are enjoying your blog.
