    Season for the books

    Great bucks and nice job telling the story, congrats. Thanks for sharing.
  2. My brine is pretty simple, got it off the net. This is for about 2-3 lbs meat 1 liter of water 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup salt, or kosher salt if you want it less salty 2 tbs brown sugar 1 tbs pickling spice 1 1/2 tsp pink cure 3-4 cloves garlic, sliced Brine for about 5 days, remove from brine, rinse, soak in clean water for 6-8 hours. Remove from clean water, pat dry, coat with coriander and coarse ground black pepper. Smoke at 250 until IT reaches 140 ish, remove and steam in oven to IT of 165. Let cool before slicing. I use hickory or oak for smoking, and this time added some whiskey barrel chips. I preheat the oven to 375. When the IT reaches about 135 on the smoker, I start a pot of water boiling. When it boils, I pull the meat off, place it on a rack (I use a turkey roasting pan and rack), pour the boiling water in the pan, put the rack in, tent with foil, then place in the oven. The preheated oven and boiling water get the meat steaming very quickly instead of waiting for the water to come up to temp for steam. As with everything else, the quality of meat you start with impacts the finished product so trim off every little bit of silver skin you can before starting. Enjoy
  3. I smoked it to an IT of about 135-140, then steamed to 165. Then let it cool completely before slicing.
  4. That looks pretty good too.
  5. This is becoming my new favorite, or at least top 3 favorite, way to eat venison. Hot pastrami on rye with swiss, mustard and pickles from the garden. The pastrami process takes a week or so and some work, but it's worth it. I also make reuben's out of it and they are great too.

    Got one before the rain!

    That's a nice buck, congrats.
  7. You can always go to the geoweb site to check on "open space" land, and the other guide would be public hunting land in the digest and on the web site. That is a bit deceiving because many towns have "open space" land that is not open to hunting, and not posted, but controlled by ordinance. You have to check your towns ordinance to see if hunting township "open space" land is permitted. Some say okay, some say no, others allow it on some pieces but not others. It doesn't have to be posted against hunting because they are not going to nail you with trespassing, they are going to hit you for violating the ordinance, which doesn't have to be posted on trees at the property. Again, just because something is not "posted", doesn't mean you can't be charged for illegally hunting there.

    State tax map site

    Excellent, just did all this and it is just what I'm looking for. Thanks.
  9. There are lots of parcels of state land not open to hunting. Guys try to sneak on Psych hospital land, DOT lands, MVC lands, etc. all the time and get busted. Good luck, maybe the fine is worth it to you.
  10. That was a nice offer, and great buck, congrats. Maybe you've found a way to keep it Tom.

    State tax map site

    Anyone on here use the NJ State tax map site? They used to let you switch to an overhead photo view. I can't find that, only the map view that only shows roads. Does anyone know how to get to that view?

    Get out and vote today

    Did they say there was high voter turnout, or say if there was high voter turnout?
  14. Don't know enough to take a side really. As someone who would almost always give LE the benefit of the doubt, I'm not sure on this one. Need to know more about the justification for the confiscation, and more about what precipitated the struggle but generally, if you try to wield a firearm against LE, you can expect to get shot.
