A Halloween Treat – Dutch Oven Venison and Pumpkin Stew:


No Comments

In case you’re wondering what you can do with pumpkins besides carve them into something scary and stick a candle in them, I’ve got another idea. They’re a member of the squash family and, like other fall and winter squashes, they are delicious. Trimmed and cubed pumpkin can be simmered with chicken broth, onions and […]

High Brass v Low Brass in Shotshells…Why?


No Comments

Every shotgunner knows that weak target and dove shotshells have low-brass heads. Really powerful magnum shotshells are built with high-brass bottoms to contain the incredible pressures generated by the huge loads of powder they contain. Except they don’t. All shotgun shells are standardized at maximum average breech pressures so that all shotshell and shotgun manufacturers […]

What Is A Staging Area And Why Should You Make One?


No Comments

It happens so easily; fall gets busy with a hundred different chores and distractions. Suddenly we’re knocking on the door of the rut—the most anticipated phase of the whitetail hunt—and we’re behind the 8-ball. Where are the best buck concentrations? Which areas hold the best animals? The clock is ticking, and you need answers to […]

Share Your Favorite Deer Recipes – Community Cookbook


No Comments

I’m always amused when people won’t share their “secret” recipes. It’s usually an old family treasure that could probably use a little updating. Besides, any recipe with cream of mushroom soup should be kept secret forever. Restaurants do this, too. Sometimes I’ll ask how they prepare a particular dish and I’ll get, “I’m sorry, but […]

Is Hunting Our Personal Super Bowl?


No Comments

Hunting is better than the World Series, the Super Bowl, Pro Golf and a dozen other sporting events because, while few of us get to enter those competitions, each of us can compete and win at hunting. While I don’t believe anyone should hunt to win a contest, let’s face it: each of us is […]

Hunt Near Water – Deer Love It There:


No Comments

Some of my favorite stands are near creeks, rivers or lakeshores. Not only do whitetails love the lush vegetation near riparian areas, they just like to drink. There’s a common—and sometimes true—perception that deer get all the moisture they need from the plants they eat, but what happens when fall arrives and green plants are […]

It’s Time For Some Easy-To-Make Stew!


No Comments

You might have noticed that, for most of us, there aren’t any “vine-ripened” tomatoes available anywhere. If you grow your own, you may have a few late ones on what’s left of some scraggly tomato vines. Those of us who are fortunate enough to can our own bumper crops each year understand what it means […]

One Shooting Myth Busted


No Comments

A lie repeated often enough becomes accepted as truth. Something similar happens with gun and shooting myths. The “heavy bullet/wind drift” mistake is a classic example. I subscribed to it for years before someone set me straight. Shoot a Heavier Bullet to Reduce Wind Drift? Like most gun myths, this one has some truth behind […]

Jerky Is Super-Easy To Make


No Comments

You’ve heard it before. Making your own venison jerky is easy and the finished product is better than what you’ll pay too much for at the store. And yet, you still haven’t done it. I’m guessing that the reason most folks don’t make jerky at home is because they just don’t believe how really easy […]
