If you see a deer that is more grey than others it is one of the off spring of deer from Michigan that were released to repopulate PA's herd, you must remove the tarsal glands from the legs when you field dress a deer or the meat will be tainted.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Count the folds at the base of a deers ear to determine age.....

If the deer you are spotlighting eyes glow red, it’s a buck.

Pick a skunk up by the tail and as long as its feet are off the ground you won't get sprayed.

Is that the voice of experience?

I have seen people actually do that without getting sprayed.

Watched an owl pick one up and fly away with it without the skunk spraying too.

I never sure enough to test it myself though.

I haven't done it YET (I will) but my grandfather and his brothers have.Grandpa NEVER lied to me! He also told me about yellow headed Carpenter bees not stinging.He's right.they don't! Catch them with your hand.
