    "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SMELL?!"
    So it is a week after I harvested my buck with the Sen-X Onyx Tactical Crossbow by STEAMBOW and me and the family are driving back from dinner…. In case you missed it – watch video here: 

    https://youtu.be/2u8Gg7zecDw

    Driving down the road with the heater blasting on our feet, the aroma of a field dressed Deer started getting stronger and stronger. I noticed a little "gamey / meaty" smell when we first got in to the truck to head to the restaurant, but now that the truck had thoroughly warmed up, it was getting pretty strong.

    I had taken out all my bloody hunting clothing, so that wasn't it. We got home and the love of my life wasn't too happy with me, but I needed to find out what the hell was causing that smell!

    The Deer head with antlers is in my Mom's garage awaiting a European mount process so that wasn't it. Buck knife had been cleaned – nope not the culprit. The tenderloins were removed in the field and immediately put into a ziplock bag and are in my freezer – so thank GOD I didn't leave those just sitting in the truck. What the hell could it be?!

    Then it hit me what is was. So I have this tradition of keeping small memory souvenirs from epic hunts. I still have the Slugger shotgun shell from my first Deer back in the 1980s. This one was going to be the broken crossbow bolt that snapped when this beast keeled over after taking this broadhead to the lung / liver/ and spinal aortic artery. So here is the culprit – a broadhead tipped thawing Buck-GUTSicle that slid under the driver's seat on the floorboards. Ooooops!

    Ah – memories.

    Buck-gutsicle.  I can't unsee that.  Wasn't there, but I can just imagine the stench.  Back in the day, a particularly evil practical joker put a raw shrimp into our supervisor's work car vent.  It was funny until they had to spend like three grand to clean out the AC system.

    😂 i know what you're saying.  after cleaning 4 squirrels in the garage where i have a game processing station with a sink,  i placed the meat in my fridge in the garage and went inside to watch the end of the football game.  i did however leave the bag of "trimmings" hanging next to the sink for 4 days as the temperature climbed into the 70s.  wifey found it and to say she wasn't pleased is an understatement.  i apologized and took it outside and dropped it in the trash.  that night a trash panda tore into the can and spread it all over the back patio.  she found it in the morning.  so, i picked up what was left and buried it in the far corner of the yard.   again, trash pandas dug it up and scattered it around the area.   once again she was to find it.  now i skin and clean my kills before bringing them home and vacuum seal them in the garage before she sees anything.

    My wife is never being a wild game person after 15 years of being married she accidentally tried some deer sausage.

    That was when she started letting me go hunting but with one very strict rule all she saw when I came home was meat that was wrapped up and white butcher bags if she sees anything else it's done and over with.

    I'm in that same boat.

    Nice one Criss. My wife never goes in the garage for anything but to pull her car in or out. A couple weeks ago, she was looking for something on one of the shelves out there. Well, she knocked an old glass bottle of Tinks#69 off the shelf on to the cement floor. It reaks so bad out there that you have to hold your breath to get in the truck! I have been watching for a nice buck to show up in the yard!

    Back in caveman days, guys would get rewarded (later that night) when they dragged home a buck for their staving wife to eat. 

    Now, we get scolded and bitched at everytime we go hunting.  Then when we do get a buck they complain about how you killed "an innocent animal", then about the meat grinder running all night, then about a few drops of blood in the garage floor the next day, then in a few days they try and fight about $550 shoulder mount you want hang in the bedroom, and then even a week later they go bizwurk about a tiny smell rotten blood in the family car.  How times have changed… for the worst!   :(

    What if my wife owns the Jeep? 😉

    I always make sure to run it through the wash on my way home from the farms. 🙂

    Well, chalk that up for experience.  You wont do that again. I notice your broadhead is pretty covered in flesh but it sure resemble a toxic broadhead. They have a lot of cutting surface.

    Always preferred Ramcats myself but that is because I've got so many big hogs around heavy duty shields

    Along the same note I field dressed a deer this Sunday and of course got pretty messy and my clothes had gore on them.

    We have Jagd Terrier hunting dogs that usually gets fed first thing in the morning but since I was out before daylight to hunt I had to feed after getting home…………. 

    I now have a new rule never walk into the middle of a hungry pack of hunting dogs smelling of deer and with deer gore and blood unless of course you want to become the desert

    My tip would be to get a wife that excepts it, or better yet hunts also.
