    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. A fire was kindled, grub was consumed and intense battles of cribbage and backgammon passed the hours until our tired heads hit the pillows. In the darkness amid […]

    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 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.

    Genuine Crafters Tracker Style Knife Review

    I was sent this pretty, Genuine Crafters, blade so that I could do a review on it. The first thing I did was a little research. The “Tracker” style of knife is quite interestingly designed and has a controversial history. There are two sides to every story and this one is no exception. The first […]

    2015 Antelope Adventures Part 2

      Continued from 2015 Antelope Adventures Part 1… Laden with Rolin’s first antelope buck, we steadily marched our way up and out of the corridor. We reached the top and scanned the deepest reaches of the looming sage prairie in search of a sign of the rest of our group. After loading the antelope into […]

    Crock-pot Elk Bourguignon

      I am blessed to be able to cook with elk meat multiple times a week. Finding recipes with amazing flavor and adapting them to the elk meat is one of my favorite ways to keep it fresh and new. This week I found the ingredients available for this version of stew and the result […]

  • Elk Street Tacos

    Elk Street Tacos

    I love Mexican food. In our house, not a week goes by that we don’t eat at least two Latin American inspired dinner dishes. The flavors and versatility just capture me and keep pulling me in! Obviously tacos come to mind when you think Mexican food but I like to switch up the traditional ingredients […]
