Sharpen Your Pencil (and check your Hooks while you're at it):

So, wouldn’t it be nice if there was an alternative product? A product made in smaller quantities and in isolation of the ‘cheaper is better’ mindset. A product forged and durable, yet lightweight and nano-coated (i.e. water repellent and rust-resistant). A product tough enough to land a +40lb Salmon without straightening out and sharp enough out of the package to not need any hand-filing. What if I told you there was such a hook that could do all of this and much more. That this hook has never before been used in a trolling spoon application…That is, until now...  the hooks that we use on our lures are not inexpensive and they are not cheap, but they are the last hook you’ll ever want on your lures.

The ‘Remnar’ (Venison Meatloaf Sandwich Recipe)

When I asked her for the recipe she sent me a list of ingredients. No measurements. When asked about this she simply said, “I never measured, I just added until it looked good."

Whitetail Deer: An Enduring Commodity

A 120-130lb animal (20% of the live weight is comprised of mostly stomach, intestines, and a bit of blood) will field dress down to about +/- 100lbs . If you’re prepared to harvest the internal organs (heart, lungs, liver, kidney) then you’re talking 45lbs of meat and 55lbs of hide, bone, brain, and other tissue: What can be consumed breaks down as follows: 45lbs of pure, lean, red meat: 6-8lbs of organ meat; +/- 20lbs of steak; and 18-20lbs of ground meat.

Venison Chili Recipe

Chili is the ultimate cold weather comfort food. The best part about chili is the ability to prepare a large batch ahead of time and freeze it. A large container of chili comes with us in our cooler for our week long adventure in the mini cabin. A staple that can warmed over a portable stove. This hunting camp delicacy can then be poured in a bread bowl. A warm, hearty treat, after a night in the woods with those you care about. Stories told around the table of our success and near misses. Moments like these make me wonder if it is the time with others that warm me or the chili.

Venison Cheeseburger Recipe

Ground venison is a lean, high protein meat. Many would argue that you need to add fat to the ground venison. Personally, I think this changes the health benefits and the taste. In order to help these burgers stay together, bread crumbs and egg are added.

UV Vision in Fish: Match the Ultra-Violet-Hatch (Article 1 of 2)

Many animals, including many fish, have Tetra-chromatic color vision. This means they have four, not three, primary color cones. Tetra-chromatic color vision, having four primary color cones, requires a combination of four primary colors within an object before the object is the color white (i.e. seen as being white). In other words, four primary colors comprise the color white, not three like with humans. Any clue what the forth color is? Hint: This article is about UV vision.

Hunting Whitetail Deer: Keep Doing Your Part to Reduce Greenhouse Gases

It means that If Men, Women, and Children in just North America - who enjoy the sport of hunting - suddenly stopped acting like the natural predators we are, then it’s quite possible that within 10 years the Deer population would be near that of domesticated cattle (nearly 1 billion animals) and Deer (who’s population doubles every 2 years if left unchecked) would account for a significant percentage of the world’s CO2 emissions.
