Today me and the two smaller versions of myself had some errands to run. First we headed to D&D Feed Store to pick up a few bales of hay and some bags of feed.
After that it was time to pick up our processed venison. Over the years we have lived here, I have used several different processors along the 190 corridor between Copperas Cove and Lampasas, and I have not found one that beats Sulphur Creek Taxidermy and Processing. The various sausages and jerkies are really where the difference is, in my opinion. And you cannot beat Jed’s perfected versions of summer sausage and snack rings.

My oldest boy, David, sort of remembers this place from last time, so he cautiously peered through the window first. The deer are processed right on the other side of that window and it’s pretty gruesome.
Making sure the coast is clear.
Jed is also getting into the beekeeping thing, so I bought a bottle of his honey:
Honey pollenated right here in central Texas.
If you deal with seasonal allergies, bee from local hives is the way to relieve it–trust me. The taxidermy is high quality, and Jed has a large display of his work.
I snapped a photo with Jed and my boys, and we were off.

Now, David and Aleks love helping me unload the truck and riding on the tractor. So, once we got back from Sulphur Creek, we had lunch and got to work. I had “gam” (MIL) take some videos and then I merged it together with the trial version of Movavi software (hence the obnoxious trial overlay). I will probably buy the full version because I found it to be very easy to work with–a lot of clicking and dragging–simple. That’s what I need because I am not a tech geek.
And now the animals are fed, and the freezer stock just got a little bigger.
If you bag a deer anywhere near here, (Fort Hood/Cove/Kempner/Lampasas) go see Jed. You will not regret it, even if you have to drive a little further.
