All Hail These Lip-Smackin’ Country Fried Venison Backstraps

Country Fried Steak is one of the little blessings of life, even if it’s probably not recommended by the American Medical Association or found on any kind of cardiac dietary charts. By Alan Clemons, Managing Editor The premise is simple: take a nice slice of beef or venison, usually about 1/2 to 1 inch...

Blueberry Shitake Venison ... mmm, sweet blueberries and the earthiness of mushrooms.

Blueberry Backstrap? Why, Yes, I’ll Have Seconds, Please

Monday evening in the grocery store I ran across some boxes of clementines, the small oranges hybridized more than 100 years ago, and realized we’re not too far away from spring. I love fresh vegetables and fruits, and cooking with them is easy. Berries always are a great addition to venison dishes and blueberries...

Once you put your venison on the grill, don't overcook it!

Fire Up The Grill For Some Tasty Venison Bacon Backstraps

Aim Small, Miss Small: The Mystical Flight of the Arrow

Young Ted had it made. Had my very 1st bow by the time I could walk (which was before my 2nd birthday) and quite honestly I never put it down in all these 68 glowing arrow flinging years! I don’t shoot arrows, I am the arrow! I am also hopelessly human, which brings about a...

12 Things You Must Have in Your Deer Camp Kitchen

There’s a good debate of sorts among hunters and chefs when it comes to preparing venison: salt and pepper, and nothing else, or a little marinade or herbs to give the roast some added flavor on the grill, smoker or in the slow cooker. I’ve had it both ways and, honestly, appreciate both when...

Ted celebrates hunting and the great conservation story everywhere he can, from the woods to the concert stage!

Enjoying the Other Deer Bonanza in Texas!

The tawny spotted hide was only occasionally visible in the thick Texas cedar puckerbrush. I don’t think any animal can disappear quite like a spotted fallow deer. Skunked for more than twenty-one hard hunted days, for the life of me I just couldn’t figure these crazy spooky, ultra-elusive deer out, even on my own...

Fondle Hardware Like You Mean It!

I fondle hardware. I embrace sporting goods. I tinker. I wallow in outdoor gear. I snuggle ammo. I caress firepower. I break stuff. I wear stuff out. I live hard, love hard, hunt hard, rock hard, ride hard, shoot hard, play hard and work hard. Hell, I even think, grill, eat and sleep hard!...

Don’t Let The Season Get Away From You

What exactly is it we want out of our annual hunting season? Backstraps? Fun? Adventure? Challenge? Sport? A trophy? Escape? Quiet? That special campfire with family and friends? The healing powers of nature? Filling the memory bank? Defying political correctness? Or just flexing that pure, natural, instinctive predator muscle because we must? All of...
