Rare to Well Done


No Comments

A couple of decades ago, I would start my wild game cooking demonstrations by eating a slice of raw deer meat. You can imagine the effect it had on the audience. For some, it was no big deal. Hey, if you can eat it rare, there’s not much difference between that and raw, right? For […]

The Midday Speed Scout

  But here’s the thing; you can still do mid-season recon without banging around so much that you bump the very deer you’re hunting. It’s called “speed scouting” and, as the name implies, it’s a quick check of some likely areas. I do it on some of my best farms a couple of times a […]

Houdini Bucks II

So get out an aerial photo, mark the spot(s) where you last encountered your buck, and then start examining the area in about a square mile around that spot. Some bucks will settle outside that loop, but most won’t be far from your last sightings. Here’s what to look for: *Prime bedding cover: If you […]

Venison Tenderloin by Scott Leysath

Sous Vide is basically a water-cooker that maintains a precise temperature within a degree or two. You vacuum-seal a seasoned piece of meat and let the Sous Vide do the work, gently simmering the meat and holding it at the exact target temperature.
