Silcott’s Harvest

For three weeks I was able to go deer hunting to provide us with some fresh meat for the next year. I was able to harvest one deer in Minnesota and two deer in Iowa. We made 50 pounds of Polish sausage and canned 20 quarts of deer roast and 45 quarts of deer burger.

During these weeks we presented our ministry in Gilbert, Minnesota, and in Iowa at Cumberland, Altoona, and Norwoodville. My goal was to harvest a deer with my bow in Iowa for the second year in a row. God had other plans so I tried again during the first shot gun season in Cumberland Iowa. Pastor Michael and his wife Dawn allowed me to stay in their home until I was able to get a deer and butcher the meat. I was able to hunt on a farmer’s land that gave me one of his land owner tags so that I could harvest a second deer.
