Hunting Success!

Yabanjin took this nice Shika on 27 November. 5 1/2 year old buck with antlers over 25 inches tall! The weather was quite cool so we aged him for 2 days before butchering him. He is safe and sound in the freezer now! Dan helped out a lot and showed a lot of experience and skill with a knife (as well as making some awesome Venison Fajitas!). Chi learned a lot that day and is also quite good with a butcher knife!
This nice 3 1/2 year old spike (Ipon-zuno) Shika was taken on the 26th of November. Chi sure proved his worth in the mountain when he demonstrated his excellent tracking technique, following this deer for almost 600 meters.
Yabanjin Out!
