    A few years ago I was given a doe that had been hit right around this time of year. Meat was tough and tasted like hemlock. Not being a Gin drinker.... I wouldn't take another hit during the spring.

    If it smells like hemlock or evergreen when you skin the deer out you will be lucky to find a dog that will eat it. I shot a buck with a muzzleloader in Dec in VT 15+ years ago with heavy snow on the ground and when I cooked the meat the house smelled like an evergreen tree. I took one bite, called up a friend of mine who had a dog and he came and got a box of meat. Cooked it up for his dog and the dog didn't particularly like it either, but did eat it. Maybe the meat would be ok farther south where they don't get into hemlock or balsam.

    I'm in agreement with browsline and NH Hunter.
    I've already told you more than I know.
