Finger Food – Easy to Make Wild Game Small Bites


No Comments

I’m not a fan of holiday parties. They get in the way of getting some sleep before heading out early to the duck blind. My hunting partners don’t look favorably at late arrivals. Whether I like it or not, parties happen and it’s usually best to make a contribution beyond a bag of chips and […]

Sweet, Sour and Spicy Sauce for Game Meat by Scott Leysath


No Comments

During the holidays we make giant batches of stuff made with cranberries to serve alongside turkeys and, unfortunately, the green bean casserole. Coincidentally, we do most of our hunting in the fall and winter months so it makes perfect sense to join in-season cranberries with whatever we drag home from the woods. I’m not nuts […]

A New (and better) Twist on Stuffed Turkey and Duck Breasts


No Comments

The next time you set out to stuff a pair of breasts in the traditional manner, try this. Stuff one and don’t stuff the other. Cook them both to the same internal temperature at the breast, ideally around 125 to 130 degrees. Ask a few friends to tell you which breast tastes better. No cheating […]

Barley is good stuff all by itself, but it gets even better when floating around in a flavorful broth alongside tender game meat and seasonal vegetables. It’s easy to cook. No need to measure anything. Pour some pearled barley, that’s the stuff with the outer shell removed, into a pot. Cover with water. Bring to […]
