Plank It


No Comments

The concept seems reasonable enough. You stick a hunk of meat or fish on a board and set the board on fire over your outdoor grill grate. The wafting smoke from the burning plank adds smoky flavor to whatever’s on-board, so to speak. It seems that most folks use the plank method for fish, but […]

Targeting Weird Deer


No Comments

Case in point. Several years ago I passed up an easy shot at a freaky old buck with a double main beam on his left side and a tiny, five-point antler on his right that jutted straight up. The resulting inside spread was probably the narrowest I’d ever seen on a mature buck. The next […]

No Comments
