Wed, 9 Apr 2014 21:37:38 EST Ground venison and wild boar http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x7626x56669358 Do any of you grind your own deer or hog? I do and am always looking for great recipes for new creations. I currently make about 7 or 8 versions of ground venison and about the same number for wild boar. If anyone would like to swap recipes I would be on board! Wild game is very lean and healthy with no antibiotics, hormones, or steroids that you possibly find in store bought meat.

I love it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x7626x55530094 This year, I was new to Wild Turkey Hunting. I love it almost just as much as deer hunting. Of course, having a 5 yrs old son, someone had to stay home to get him to go to school. Lucky husband to have me! I let him go so did he let me go turkey hunting. It is so different from deer hunting. I liked the experience and looking forward to next year. <BR> <BR> I just got a call from my husband. Him and the boys (my nephew and his friend) are coming back home. Hunting done it 2 days! Two good si...

Did really well on the draw this year and will be going after deer, antelope and elk. The elk is a once-in-a-lifetime so it's a major part of my motivation -- I really want to be fit enough to enjoy it. Don't know if we'll make it to AK for salmon this year but with this full of a schedule I don't want to waste any of it! <BR> <BR> Hope to spark a little camaraderie for the coming season where fitness helps you get the be... Fri, 17 May 2013 13:23:53 EST YUM YUM http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x7626x52423533 Had spiced rum mushrooms and elk last night and again this morning for breakfast. Recipe from the Bugle called for Brandy but I only had Spiced Rum. I had gone to the only place that has hard liquor for Brandy but arrived at 3:15 pm. They close at 3:00 PM. Fifty mile to next saloon so I settled for Spiced Rum which I had on hand. It was great. Less than 30 minutes preparation and cooking time. Bugle is the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation monthly magazine. Thu, 7 Mar 2013 05:52:16 EST New Again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x7626x52397906 Hello All!

They were: <BR> - Hunt in another state besides my home state. I did and shot a nice 10-pointer in both Ohio and Maryland (both with a bow) <BR> <BR> - I also wanted to harvest my largest buck to date. I accomplished that too by getting a 161 5/8 (gross score) buck in Ohio. <BR> <BR> It was a great season!

I did not believe him until I saw a doe with a blacktail. Don't know if it is a local mutation or not. Has anyone else seen this? Later in the season my bother harvested a buck and it had a black tail on the topside. I will post a photo on my page.

Wed, 21 Oct 2009 19:22:31 EST Hello everyone! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x7626x28985069 I am a 50+ avid flyfisher, hunter and all around outdoor lover. I have about 40 pounds to lose. I am excited about this website. It has already helped me lose some weight and get focused on what I need to do. Beside the weight, I have high cholestrol and high blood pressure. I always thought that my hunting and outdoor stuff was enough ( that was my excuse). But I see I need to mend my ways. I look forward to reading about everyones adventures!

My husband has a Thompson Center Endeavor that I have been practicing with. My son has a Savage. I am the only left hander in the family. When hunting last year, I was using my friends 308. I have been doing some research. <BR>...

It seems the years I have practiced more I have been much more successful. It definitely helps increase your chances for a humane quick kill. I therefore challenge any of you that are planning to bow hunt in the fall to start practicing at least three times a week until the season starts. It may even be considered a strength exercise. Tell me if shooting your bow a lot has never made your m...

I love both. My husband and I just bought a little cabin on my favorite lake, and we are spending lots of weekends trying to get it ready for the summer. Thankfully it has been too cold to fish the past few weekends so we don't feel like we're missing out on much by working on the cabin. I'm ready ...

I think that it is for several reasons. First if the deer are not in the area bait won’t make them appear. Second, bait lets me know the exact distance to the deer so I can make a clean humane kill (especially with a bow) Lastly I see no difference between hunting over bait that I put out and hunting on private land over a farm crop (I can’t plant crops on state land). Bait has also become bi...

I grew up hunting and fishing, and thankfully never grew out of either! Like to rifle and archery hunt big game, and really enjoy waterfowl hunting. When nothing else is open, we go after the "whistle pigs" (ground squirrels). <BR> <BR> Feel free to start a new topic. <BR> <BR> Walt Wed, 24 Jan 2007 16:49:53 EST
