Red Deer Hunt at Double C Deer Ranch
Steve Caldwell Hosted A Special Meat Hunt On His Beautiful Ranch in McComb, Mississippi.
On the 8th of February, I had the pleasure to be invited to Double C Deer Ranch for a unique meat hunt. W.W.H. board member, Dicky Robichaux, worked out the coordination with W.W.H. board member and owner of the ranch, Steve Caldwell.
After a hearty breakfast at a local cafe, we headed to the Double C Deer Ranch.The ranch is absolutely beautiful! The amount of wildlife that was seen on this hunt was staggering. It is unbelievable that a place like this exists near McComb, Mississippi. I felt like I was on safari in another country, or at least on one of the big exotic ranches in Texas.
I made a great shot at 124 yards, straight into the heart of a red deer, dropping it. The shot was perfect, no meat was wasted, as this red deer had a special purpose. The cleaning shed was first class, one of the only ones I have seen with hot water! It didn't take long to have the red deer skinned, butchered and on ice.This facility made it a snap. Electric hoist, drain in the cleaning area under the hoist, a butchering table, hot water for clean up...I was in heaven!
On the way to the highway I stopped in at Mauthe's Dairy. The Creole cream cheese and cheese cakes are some of the best you can find. I walked out of there loaded down with goodies to take home. I took the red deer home and processed the animal. The meat was some of the finest I have seen on a high fenced animal. It had really good color, great firmness and was prime A, a chef's dream.
It was my pleasure to to process this animal as three W.W.H. families received processed venison as a direct result of this hunt. I want to personally thank Steve and Dicky for giving me the opportunity to give back to the organization.
