‘Sporting Chef’ Scott Leysath Stirs Up Deer Talk Now

Veteran hunter and wild game chef Scott Leysath of California will take a break from waterfowl hunting this week to be the special guest on “Deer Talk Now.”

Leysath is in California filming an episode of his new television show, Dead Meat. The show highlights hunters and anglers who target unusual species including crows, coots, gar, opossum and other unpopular but edible species, and how Leysath or his guests prepare the fare for the table.

But on Wednesday, Leysath will take a break to call in from the field for the weekly episode of Deer Talk Now to discuss deer preparation and cooking tips. Hosted by Dan Schmidt and Brad Rucks of Deer & Deer Hunting, the one-hour live webcast features experts talking about deer, deer hunting, habitat management, tactics, gear and more. The show airs from 12-1 p.m. Central at DeerandDeerHunting.com. Deer Talk Now is presented by Mathews, Carbon Express and ICOtec.

Your questions for Leysath are critical to Wednesday’s show, so send them in on the Deer Talk Now webpage now. Submit a question to be considered and you will join the pool eligible to win cool prizes that could include a copy of Leysath’s new “Better Venison Cookbook,” the Deer & Deer Hunting Lunar Calendar, Carbon Express Arrows and more!
