    @Junior do you ice down the sausage after you smoke it? I just started this year And been making snack sticks with high temp cheddar With great outcomes. I’m always looking for suggestions or how other do it.

    Doe down. I saw a cow horn spike at 3:30. He walked in made a rub and then came broadside. He only needed three more years and 125". About 5 , three does and fawn showed up. They stayed just out of range until sundown. The biggest doe walked down the fence line giving me a 15 yard shot, quartering to me. My sight was set at 25 yards so I shot high, hitting her in the spine. Went straight down. I had to cut her throat and couldn't get tasteful pictures. 20201101_181639.jpg

    Im curious as well. That stops the cooking process and lets it stay at the correct internal temp. What temp do you cook it to? I took mine to 150 last year and it was good but had a few keep cooking Im sure and got way too dry. I had to throw it away it was so tough.

    Does Mother Nature not realize I took off this week? What would you guys do in this situation? I can always cancel and go in to work and try next week when temps drop a little or stick it out. Deer are deer right?? All it takes is one hot doe...[​IMG]

    Yes. We smoke the sausage until the temp inside reaches 156°, then immediately off to the ice bath to stop the cooking process, especially in the larger sausage casings. After that we have to wipe off any fat from the outside of the casings. Then we let those sit in the fridge overnight and wipe off any excess moisture the next day. Done alot of trial and error. Id like to think we have a system down and i guess we do for the most part but seems like somethings always changing! I have no problem eating any of the "mistakes" though! LOL

    Are you using large casings or the smaller 1 lb sausage casings? We typically use the large sausage casings (a little less work). This batch we did 10 one lb size in with the large ones we normally do. Apparently that was an error. The ends came out alot drier than we would have liked

    I would say look at your current trail cam activity, moon phase, and historically when the rut is hot & heavy in your neck of the woods and try to make your best educated guess from there.

    By me the car deer crashes increase 10 fold once the chasin starts- typically Halloween weekend. Two factors i try to consider when really concentrating on hunting!

    Good luck!

    Checked the cameras and didn't see the big boys on there that were on there the previous month. I decided with that knowledge and the high temps that I would come back to work this week. Temps drop considerable starting Monday. Hopefully get something roaming around during that time. Weird temps for Nov...but you know 2020!

    We use the large casings. Thats good info on pulling them and icing. I will definitely do that this year. Thanks for the info.

    @Junior, I'm sorry but you're going to need to re-score it again. Each measurement needs to be to the nearest 1/8", not 1/4". Unfortunately I can't enter your buck scored like it is.
