Deer hunting started this morning. From the people I talked with, it seems like most Oklahomans prefer to skin and butcher their own deer. I ran into 19-year-old Ben Roberts at the Barnsdall check-in station. From there he let me follow him out to a friend’s where he finished up with the deer.
“We do it all by hand here,” he said. “We’re a little poor and can’t afford a butcher.”
