Anyone found stripped Velvet before?
« on: October 03, 2017, 08:09:42 PM »
I was cleaning out my pack tonight and had forgotten I threw this in there.

During early elk I came into a wallow and a few fresh rubs and picked up a few intact pieces of stripped velvet from a Bull. Thought it was a cool find and it's surprisingly still intact.

Got me thinking , has anyone else found stripped velvet?

Yeah, I think I was joking with my buddy that I was gonna keep it and hang my tag on it after late season ends if I strike out.  :chuckle:

I never have, but my dog has a few times when we were out and about. She inhaled that stuff like it was candy.

 Once she found the velvet and then a few minutes later we saw the buck that had rubbed it off. Big high mountain 4 pt with bloody antlers still. Very cool.

Are you going to eat it? Velvet is prized by many cultures as cure for many illnesses. It also has a big reputation as a aphrodisiac and a cure for erectile dysfunction, ED.

I was thinking about doing a minced tag stew with it. Beef Broth with a splash of red wine vinegar, sprinkled gently with basil. The trick is to mince  the tag so fine, you forget it's in there.

I'll let you know.

I should bring my tags. We could do the hunter's version of Stone Soup! Everyone pitches in a little paper, some Asian cures for limp yang. Lots of bourbon and vodka.  :tup:
