STUFFED TENDERLOIN

If you don’t know, I am an avid bow hunter. My dad owned his own plumbing and heating business so he worked ALL THE TIME… I wonder where I get it from:)

Anyway, in order to spend time with him, I started bow hunting and immediately fell in love with sitting in nature while watching the animals.

Someone said I was cruel for doing this (on Facebook) but honestly, it is the most humane way to feed my family. The animal lived a beautiful life gallivanting around in my woods with yummy acorns to eat, as well as my lovely flowers they always nibble on! PLUS, the majority of the time, I sit in a tree stand to watch the animals. It isn’t about killing, it is about celebrating nature.

There is something in nature called a Limiting Factor. This is when a herd gets so large, things such as cars hitting deer, starvation because of lack of food, harsh weather, and hunters help thin the herd. We have so many deer in our area that I am just one tiny blip in this Limiting Factor. Next time you hit a deer with your car I bet you will wish I hunted in your area.
