Deer Season Prep Part 2: Stands

Deer Season Prep Part 2: Stands

I recently had a friend say that I sure know how to pack fun into a short amount of time. That statement is so true!

If you’re having a problem getting enough bacon or pulled pork, you should really listen up! I’ve got a FUN solution for you – Wild Hog hunting!

Breasting & Cooking Duck

If you go on a duck hunting adventure and are lucky enough to take one or more home with you, you might want to try your hand at cleaning & cooking them. Cleaning them isn’t as scary as it might seem. I’m even going to share an easy how-to video of Sparky breasting the duck we shot on our adventure you can read about in the Inaugural Duck Hunt post. My Sparky is big & strong, so he makes it look SO easy, but he’s a great teacher, too! Breasting Sparky’s…
