Love it! Quite the operation. Antelope is a favorite especially with kids along. My 12 year old daughter and I didn't draw this year, but we'll keep trying. She did draw a cow elk so I hope we can find them.

Will be a lot of sad faces if we fail to draw one year. I may not party any of the buck tags next year so that hopefully at least someone will get one. Good luck on the cow elk!

Great write up and cool set up. How long did it take to get all of them cut up and packaged? Thats quite a bit of work!

I am not sure as I would do some then get distracted or have to run an errand. I know the skinning took well under an hour and then I had the fronts and backstraps all processed before I had to run to the school at 11 something for a lunch date with some cute kids and a 4th grade teacher I sleep with. I am guessing a couple hours on the fronts/backstraps.

The hinds probably took 1.5 hours to break and trim. Weighing up the trim and adding frozen beef fat (I like 20%), which is a PITA to cut up, takes longer then actually grinding it with that commercial grinder. Then packaging and clean up. Probably had 6-7 hours of actual processing time in it from skinning to clean up. Not exactly setting the world on fire for speed.

Very nice.. You use your antelope like deer or elk venison?? My first wife and I did in the early years, but for the last 50 or so, we just use it for jerky..

We use it like elk which is mainly steaks and burgers on the grill with an occasional pot roast.

Deer we use only for taco meat, jerky, snack sticks, etc.

Some of my kids put antelope above elk but for me it comes down to the individual animal. Either way elk and antelope are contenders for #1 and #2 in our house and deer are a distant 3rd.

Interesting.. Just the opposite here, deer elk, antelope... We usually kill our deer in early to mid Oct...
