“Omaha…Omaha!” Football’s here – get your venison meatballs!


No Comments

Now that football season is well under way, there’s a good chance that many of us will be enjoying the game with friends. Potluck is the norm and, as much as I like them, I prefer to bring something besides duck, dove or deer “poppers.” There’s usually no shortage of fried stuff, chips, dips and […]

Do Not Lose Your Deer!


No Comments

What do you do right after you’ve shot a deer? Celebrating might seem like a natural response, but doing so could result in your losing that same deer. Veteran deer hunters save the celebration for later and do these important hunting tasks first.

A Whitetail Honey Hole – Public Lands


No Comments

Most hunters do not associate public land with quality deer hunting. Instead of trophy whitetails, they picture shot-up road signs, parking lots strewn with litter, and other hunters (all complete morons, of course) screwing up their experience. Of course those negative associations can be based in reality. I grew up hunting public lands, and I’ve […]

How to Make Venison on the Grill


No Comments

Since it’s late September, many of us have recently enjoyed a dove “popper” or two, or twelve. They’re great. You soak some dove breasts in teriyaki and wrap ‘em with jalapeno, cream cheese and, well, you know…bacon. I’m glad we’ve gotten that out of our systems. Now it’s time to try something different, but just […]

Are Soybeans the Preferred Food Crop All the Time?

As most farm country deer hunters know, soybeans are one of the whitetail’s favorite food sources. But the plant is preferred by deer only in certain stages, and early fall can be one of the most challenging times to hunt a buck over beans.

How to Make Venison – Argentina Style


No Comments

A couple of years ago, I was invited to spend some time in Virginia with my friend, Ken Perrotte. Ken’s an outdoor writer and obsessed hunter and angler who has logged more time in the field than just about anyone else I know, and that’s saying a lot. Every year, Ken throws a Asado Feast […]

Rabbit Hunting – A Great Introduction To All Kinds Of Hunting


No Comments

What the youth of America need is fewer electronic toys and more bunny hunting. When we were kids… (I’ll spare you the part about walking through two feet of snow at 30-below zero to school and back uphill both ways) we hunted bunnies. Cottontails and jackrabbits were our initiation to outdoor adventure, the step beyond […]

What do Trail-Cam Pics Mean to You?


No Comments

With deer season right on the horizon, I’ve been taking a little time to review the summer’s trail cam pics. I’m also doing something I’ve vowed to do in the past but never seem to get around to; gathering the best pics of the best bucks (as well as a few up-and-comers) and saving them […]

Venison Meatloaf to Practically Die For


No Comments

A couple of weeks ago, this blog contained a basic meatloaf recipe like the one Mom used to make. It’s a fairly basic recipe, one that most people would expect from a meatloaf. This version is amped up with Southwestern flavors, corn, peppers and whatever else fell into the bowl and gives it more texture, […]
