Tis the time of the year to get a new supply of bucktail to make your fishing lures. If you pass a deer carcus on the side of the road and his rack is missing an imposter done it. If his tail is missing, I probably done it. Split and remove bone, cover raw side with alum and tack on your shed under the eave in sunlight till it cures. Remove and saturate skin side with castor oil( softens) Cut off hair as needed to make bucktails or flies. I bet they sell a small pack of buck tail for at least a dollar nowadays. Name of my flies will be Roadside Kill Trouterlizers.:D

Have any of ya'll tried wild rabbit for cut bait yet?:D

Later, Forrest

I have a deal worked out with some buddies who hunt, I give them my fish heads, they give me their buck tails. I don't ask what they do with the fish heads, they don't ask what I do with the tails :D

As to the rabbit....hum...another buddy that hunts rabbits also fishes - but he fishes on Fridays and hunts on Saturdays. Sounds like maybe he should reverse that....:p
