I mean kill it skin in it and remove its guts.
I've done it with deer. Cows are just heavier.
You mean physically or emotionally?
Done it with rabbits and chickens, with stiff upper lip as survival teacher. But, it's no fun.
I've done it with a fish, but I didn't remove the skin, I ate it.
You women are all alike.
If I knew how, I'd make a game out of it.
I've done it to thousands of fish - I worked a salmon slime line in Alaska for a summer .
Seems a chicken would be a mess, with all the feathers everywhere.
Not in the hands of an expert chicken flicker. Two enter, one leaves. Plus a pillow.
I have slaughtered cows (steers), skun them, gutted them and butchered them. Deer are easier to handle, but if you have a come-along or winch and a sturdy scaffold or tree to hang the steer from, the only real difference in the process is the size of the gut-pile and the weight of the hide. Fresh steer-hides are incredibly heavy, if you're trying to handle them with only one or two people.
Ask a Hindu.
Yum. Marinated deer backstraps.
I've raised steers (grain feed) and took them to a meat market that took care of everything. Another Yum.
My father hunted, so there probably isn't much that I haven't helped skin, gut and eat. Lots of Yums.
I couldn't do it. If the cow was alive and I was starving, I'd dig up and eat grubs before I would kill the cow. So I kill the cow and live another week before the meat rots and then I die anyway. The cow is superior to me because it will continue to eat grass and live.
So, that's why I would live on the ocean and eat the crustaceans which live in abundance.
And I'd gather and grow veggies. I read that in England 200 years ago that a wonderful wild asparagus grew along the sand dunes before asparagus was cultivated.
the asparagus was probably brought in by the romans much earlier, and escaped.
yep, i could kill and eat, no problem. once you get hungry, sentimentality loses its appeal.
I opened some live clams today so killing a cow shouldn't be much harder... :shy:
How do you emotionally kill a cow?
Four days without food and I'd be slicing it up and grilling steaks.
Becoming a coroner would be a lot harder than becoming a butcher.
If it was a case of starving, then Nellie would get it and I'd be having steak for tea.
I do not know how any one could do that job.
Survival instinct is a powerful thing.
