Fall Off Cloud 9

So much has happened since I last put finger to keyboard. Nothing in this over computerized, technologically engorged culture ever waxes poetically anymore. But my fall has been the purest picture of perfect. I feel spoiled and I am spoiled. I don’t deserve to have had so many things go my way but I will…

Antelope Biscuits & Gravy Dinner

A classic dish often cannot be improved upon and I am very ready to admit that. Biscuits and gravy is simply down home comfort food. I would never be so presumptuous as to present this dish as an improvement upon good old biscuits and gravy. I prefer to think of it as morphing the classic…

Water Wars-Hunting Fitness/Nutrition Journey

Hydration is very important for everyone and I, as a chronically dehydrated fool, can attest to that fact. Headaches, malaise and poor brain function are just a couple decent reasons to try to drink enough H2O every day but I recently found out a little info that was new to me and I thought might…

A Moose Hunt Through 8 Year Old Eyes

Meet Briger, my 8 year old daughter and light of my world. I wanted to try and help her capture her first hunting trip so Tristan and I outfitted her with her own little camera and binoculars and she took care of the rest. The day we got home from the hunt I sat down…

Apple Bacon Wrapped Elk Tenderloin

One of the most prized cuts off the tasty elk is the tenderloin. These prime meats are so tender and delicious that I often have the packages sitting in the freezer until almost the following hunting season because I want to save them for something special. Today I decided to try to roast a whole…

2015 Bull Elk Hunt Part 2

Season was coming to a close. Many a long, cold, tiring day had ended in the cabin. There the sweaty long johns and soaked camo came off.

The LifeCoaster-Hunting Fitness/Nutrition Journey

2015 Bull Elk Hunt Part 1

It came and went without more than a handful of people knowing about it. To a vast world, it never existed. To most people, the thought of it will never entertain a moment of time in their minds. Yet for me, this time was one of the most exciting of my life and the memory…

Antelope Italian Sausage Stuffed Shells

Antelope is rapidly becoming one of my favorite meats. With unique flavor and incredible tenderness, this prairie protein stands alone in a sea of meats. When we butcher our antelope, we turn all the ground meat into Italian sausage. Antelope has a natural sage flavor lending itself perfectly to the herbs and spices in sausages….
