I plan on getting into hunting in 2014 since my family and I will be settled down in NC. Ideally I'd like for my wife to stop buying meat at the grocery store, mostly. I understand the occasional hamburger patties or whatever. But I'd really like to replace most of the meat in our diet with hunted game from yours truly. The seasons for deer in eastern NC are as follows: Archery: Sept 7 - Sept 27 Muzzleloader: Sept 28 - Oct 11 Gun: Oct 12 - Jan 1 As of right now I'm not an archer and have no muzzleloading guns. That might have to change if it turns out I enjoy hunting. There is a six deer limit per season in NC. All six can be antlerless but only four of the six can have antlers. Since I am new to this I don't know how long to expect a deer to last. We are a family of four. Is it reasonable to think that if I am able to harvest six deer each season that amount of meat will last a year for a family of four? I'm sorry if this seems like a ridiculous question to you guys. For all I know that might be too much meat? Thanks for the help.
