1. Butterfly meat that is thicker than 1 inch by cutting into two thinner pieces; leave the meat connected at one edge. Open up the butterflied meat so it lies flat. Roll the meat tightly with the grain, tucking in any irregular edges. 2. Tie the rolled meat about an inch from the end that is farthest from you; use…
Now that you’ve cut up the carcass, it’s time to bone the meat. Boning is easier than bone-in butchering, and usually results in tastier meat.

It’s hard to beat the enticing aroma of homemade venison bratwurst or venison Italian sausage sizzling on the grill
Boat control is a major factor when fishing for any species of fish. It’s an important element for success on any body of water. If you can’t maneuver your machine in order to put the bait or lures exactly where the fish are at, you’re wasting your time. We often think fish will travel that distance, but they will not….
I’m seeing renewed interest in slip-bobber fishing for walleyes, a technique that can be extremely productive along inside weedlines, rocks, and reefs – especially in wind-blown areas. A prime way to fish, for example – if you have wind coming into a rock pile, reef, or weed edge – is to drop a jig or hook with some live bait…
While fishing, I observe lots of angler behavior, and I can definitely say many people tend to fish plastics too fast – especially for bass – whether it’s a tube rigged wacky or Texas-rigged. We need to slow down and try new techniques for retrieving a lure. Most anglers simply work the lift-drop, lift-drop. There’s nothing wrong with casting out and…
Crankbaits are one of my favorite multi-species lures, but they don’t perform unless you employ them properly. Set your crankbait at the correct depth, or in a tough bite or with less-aggressive fish, fish won’t chase it. Use your electronics to mark the location of fish, then put the crankbait in their zone. We need to match crankbaits with conditions….

With fishing today being more technical and tactic-specific than ever before, picking out the right hook for the correct presentation, can be a daunting task. To help sort things out, an interview was needed with a guy who’s seen it all and been around them for decades.
Species identification is one of duck hunting’s biggest challenges. With species driven harvest management, hunters run the risk of going over the limit if they can’t identify species, and in the case of mallards, knowing gender, before pulling the trigger.
What are the best locations for a deer stand when the rut is in progress? In my experience (which includes hunting white-tailed deer during the…
