Every website is different and, just like you, I get frustrated trying to find stuff. So I thought I’d just make our web site a bit easier to navigate. I’ll add that the most frequently asked question I get is, “What’s in the book?” If that’s your question too, read Tip #3 To find specific […]

I just posted a series of short videos I took while John and I prepped two white-tailed does for the butcher table. The animals have already been field dressed, skinned, and hung in the garage, aging for a few days. Whitetail doe meat is very tender though, of the two deer, one was a yearling […]
One of the downsides of hunting is meat loss due to the bruising and ripping of bullets. The most obvious solution is not to place bullets where they’ll damage a lot of meat, but that’s more complicated than it appears. A brain shot, for instance, kills animals instantly, but wild animals move their heads a […]
Years ago, John and I both had optics columns in magazines—his in Peterson’s Hunting and mine in Woman’s Outlook. In those days we were hunting–and traveling to hunt a lot–and ‘testing’ an awful lot of scopes. It may sound like heaven, all that hunting in faraway places and it was, for the most part. But, […]
A short excerpt from Gun Gack III: Once More into the Breech Many hunters believe expanding hunting bullets vary considerably in how quickly they “mushroom,” due to how the bullet’s constructed. In reality, most start to open immediately upon hitting an animal, and how long it takes for the bullet to fully expand also doesn’t […]
In the last blog post I offered a tasty spread with cream cheese and spices to fix overcooked meat. But there’s another way to grasp delicious out of the jaws of overcooking. I’ve called it two things in my wild game cookbooks and it is both of those two things: The Backwards Marinade and The […]
The tools of the trade include oven thermometers, so you can make sure 350° is 350°, as well as simple timers, though these days I mostly tell Siri to set the timer. (I’ve even set Siri’s voice to have an Irish accent; though I wish I could have Julia Child’s voice on my smart phone.) […]
The Other First Wild Game Breakfast Option—in a cup! Whether you’re going out for bear or turkey, pike, trout or bass, there’s one thing you’ll need. And it’s not gear. (Oops, you do need that.) What I’m talking about though, is you, personally, will need energy and while that apple fritter or box of mini […]
My fellow-foodie friend, Jeff John, who also happens to be a rifle loony, emailed me a couple of weeks ago to let me know ‘something’ was coming. Wouldn’t say what it was, except that it was shelf stable. A surprise! How very cool. When the ‘shelf-stable’ box arrived at my front door, it was like […]
When it comes to fishing, there’s nothing I like better than pike. Aside from the fun of fishing—especially when they grab your lure 3 feet from the boat—they taste wonderful and have the firmest flesh of all non-oily (as in not trout or salmon) game fish. And yes, I know walleye exist. They might even […]
