In Alaska you can give someone else your hunting license and tag, and they can harvest an animal for you. That's how we ended up with caribou in the freezer.

|it was cut in half.|
front half and back half.
Yep, it was a boy...
It was very interesting, but in the end, all I could smell was raw caribou meat. Unfortunately, that smell is ever present when trying to cook it, even after it's cooked. I think if we had received the caribou processed, I probably wouldn't have such an aversion. Now if we could just get us some more moose...
|It was funny because when the hunter saw me get out of the truck, he said,|
"it's not for the faint of heart..."
to which I replied
"I went on a field trip to the butcher shop when I was in grade school - I'm good."
Who was he trying to scare?
|That Tupperware was quite helpful...|
|2 pounds per bag - over sixty pounds of ground 'bou in the freezer....|
