The Birthday Buck | Watch Video

Tue, 01/08/2019 - 11:36

“If it was easy, everyone would do it.” That was the thought going through my mind as I woke up to my alarm clock obscenely early yet again. The coffee pot was gurgling away as I dressed in the dark and tried not to wake my sleeping wife.

Long Range Hunting Do’s & Don’ts

Tue, 01/08/2019 - 11:06

A wide racked, deep-forked mule deer buck climbed the face of a far ridge, almost to the top and gone. My friend, an expert shot with any kind of weapon, lay prone behind his rifle, scope trained on the buck as it climbed. “Range?” The word was terse and unembellished with superfluous verbiage.

Simple Gourmet: Venison with Pear Sauce

Mon, 01/07/2019 - 23:27

You know what I hate? Recipes that call for special ingredients that I'm not likely to have on-hand. I don't always have the opportunity to plan a meal and buy all the stuff ahead of time. Sometimes I just need to defrost a piece of meat and get it done for dinner right now. This recipe is perfect because it's made of things you probably have in the cupboard, and it's delicious and approachable even for people who don't like "game meat."

Late Season Ringnecks

Mon, 01/07/2019 - 23:12

As the New Year rings in every Dec 31, most hunters believe that they will have to wait until September to get the opportunity to chase fur and feathers again, as most of the big game seasons have closed and for the most part the only season open is waterfowl. Although waterfowl hunting is a great pursuit, the barriers to entry can be steep with the cost of decoys and equipment. But luckily for most Americans, there is a large game bird that offers quite the challenge, the ringneck pheasant.

Sun, 01/06/2019 - 08:11
