Weird is right. Who puts sugar and/or creamer in their coffee?

That’s just metrosexual.

From: DoeFever

Sounds like a hard no from most. But what makes deer milk weirder than goat or cow milk?

From: JohnMC
14-Nov-19
I see your point. If I am completely honest with myself I guess I am kind of like the tree hugger that is fine with buying his meat at that store but killing it himself is disturbing. None the less deer milk not on my must try list.

From: D31
14-Nov-19
Why are you shooting does who are lactating would be the first question I would ask. If shes bagged up she has at least one fawn that is nursing and maybe two or three. If the fawns had been weaned already she would have dried up. Female mammals don't just go around with a bag full of coffee creamer without a reason. That reason is to give their offspring the nourishment they need to have an opportunity at survival. Real men take their coffee black.

14-Nov-19
I shot a doe on 11/8 that gushed milk when i gutted her. Her fawn was with her and that fawn was as plump as any fawn ive ever seen. Couldnt believe it. Just cuz they have milk doesnt mean the fawn is dependent on it. Im not sayin that ur choice is wrong, just lets lighten up on the condescension a tad...

From: DoeFever
14-Nov-19
1. Does can still have milk in them come fall... 2. Theres nothing unethical about taking a doe. In fact its needed in many areas. Herd control. 3. Im not on here to argue about how anyone likes their coffee or their sexuality. Just wanted to get an opinion on using a resource.

Using doe milk seems pretty ethical to me. Maybe its a bit taboo but at the end of the day milk is milk, no?

DoeFever it’s actually fairly common here in SD. I’m in the Hutterite colony here in SD and we actually look for does with bags and will actually pick up roadkill to get the extra milk when we can. Good post!

And here I thought the butt out tool was weird........

From: D31
14-Nov-19
I am not against taking Does or herd management. In the eighties I shot 26 Does in a row before taking a buck, none of them were bagged up where you could have milked them. When I do take a Doe I choose to take Does that do not appear to have fawns with them. Most fawns here in Michigan are weaned by Nov 15, the start of rifle season. Bow season here starts Oct 1 and you do encounter fawns that are still nursing and have visible spots occasionally. I do take my coffee black today but have taken it with cream or sugar or both at times. Good Day

Woodguy65 He consolidates from quite a few deer. I love bagging does, and if I get one where the bag is full I give what I can to him, as do others. He adds some sugar, brings to a boil then cools. Then he evaporates to get it into a powder. I suppose you could use it for baking purposes as well. Just to be clear I am a supplier not a consumer here fellas.

Both one of the funniest and scariest comments ever made on Bowsite!

Can you imagine the increase in work day productivity across the country? Or would it possibly cause a decrease due to depression and lack of reason to show up to work? I don't think you can risk it Pat, no shut downs allowed. Pour another cup of coffee and drink it how ya like it....but keep that info to yourself lol.

From: Huntcell

This time of the year the higher butterfat content isn’t as much of the problem as is all the lumps from all that chasing and running during the rut and separation from the fawns causes a bit of a backup with in the system. So just squeeze harder if it’s not fluid.

maybe the next clickbait troll will introduce a ct approved shoot-n-release deer milking method that this tight knit brotherhood can rally around

How much dehydrated milk could he possibly get from one doe? A teaspoon?

"I really need to shut down Bowsite."

All I had to do was say I drank from the nip of my dead does???

Seriously...there MUST be a more appropriate place to post this stuff. I'm sure there is a place, deep on the dark web, where necroptic ungulate teat nursers put on their diapers and have at it with lactating dead animals.

Question....and please, if you're a dairy farmer or know one, answer this. In your morning rounds, you discover one of your heifers was obviously struck by lightning during the night, do you chain her up, drag her back to the milking barn, hook her up to the milking machine with all the live heifers.... or do you dump her down the ravine with the rest of the farm garbage after you call in the insurance claim?

From: Huntcell
16-Nov-19
A heifer does not produce milk since she has yet to have a calf which triggers milk production. Once a heifer has a calf it is referred to as a cow.

By definition a heifer: heif·er /?hef?r/ a young female cow that has not borne a calf.”

From: ki-ke
16-Nov-19
Thanks Hunt for the clarification. If I was a dairy farmer, I would have answered my own question.

Melk and cookies?

From: Ambush
16-Nov-19
It’s kinda like Cat Shit Coffee (yes there is such a thing) in that it’s a fad. If you can claim something as rare and exclusive even if by price alone, you’ll find an eager and foolish market.

Some will pay a very high price to have farmed and milked deer cream and claim they feel more invigorated and they’re being enviro conscious. A few at the top will poo-poo the wannabes as they can afford to indulge in the tiny supply of pure wild deer cream.

Then on to the next fad.

From: APauls

Lol I love that MELK stuff. First clue that Yeti has too much money lol

From: greg simon
16-Nov-19
Technically ki-ke there is a “heifer” that produces milk. Before they calve it’s a heifer. After one calf it’s a first calf heifer. After their second calf they are a cow. Terminology varies by region but that is how we call them

Either way the dead animal is not milked!!!

From: D31

Midwest, Having gutted and processed the 26 Does myself it would have been impossible not to notice a full utter with freshly suckled teats while slitting her belly open. I learned the difference between a full utter and a dry utter when I was five and my grandfather taught me to milk a cow not a heifer. GoodDay

Rut Nut, its for "alternative"milk. Pretty much any milk which can be collected that isn't from a cow or goat. Tennis star Djokovic bought up the entire planet's years supply of Serbian donkey cheese as an investment. Sells for as much as $500 a pound. They make cat cheese, dog milk, yak milk, maybe even from mice since they nurse too.

Some weird-ass people in this world, but you knew that...
