Burn 20 Rounds Now Or 1 Later


No Comments

It’s your choice. Burn through 20 rounds of big game ammunition now or just one during your hunt. One miss. Yeah, miss. At some point you’re going to miss. Would you rather miss a few targets on the range or a few trophy bucks on the hunt? As a died-in-the-wool cheapskate, I appreciate the urge […]

Foot Plots – It’s All About The Prep


No Comments

Non-hunters—and even the odd sportsman—often wonder why food plotting is so popular. Well of course the main reason is food sources attract and hold deer to a property. But right behind that excuse is this: food plots are just plain fun. I like digging in the dirt. I like watching stuff I plant grow. I […]

Denver Leg


No Comments

DENVER LEG I cook several hundred pounds of venison each year, something that successful deer hunters do as well. On some occasions, it’s necessary to purchase farmed venison from a game supplier.

Summer Sausage


No Comments

Some folks are intimidated by the idea of making their own sausage at home. I was one of them. For years, I thought that only food scientists could make sausages. I figured that it required a chemistry background and knowledge of powerful potions that kept your meat from turning green or, if used improperly, might […]

Use technology to your advantage when it comes to scouting property. Grab a plat book and go online.

Pumped on Prairies


No Comments

If I did any kind of job last week, you should be sufficiently motivated to create a patch of prairie—if not several—on your hunting property. Prairie habitat is not only adored by whitetails, it’s also native to many sections of the country. So, more often than not, we’re restoring, rather than creating, prairie if we […]

MAKING THE MOST OF LESSER CUTS


No Comments

After writing about how to tenderize tougher cuts of venison a few weeks ago, I figured it makes sense to offer one of my favorite recipes for those lesser parts. It’s a spin on the classic Philly Cheesesteak with tender medallions of venison, onions, peppers, mushrooms, garlic and provolone cheese, all piled into a crusty […]
