canned taco

Time for another great Game Time Recipe.  A while ago my brother gave me some canned venison.  I had it in my Pantry for a while trying to figure out what I should make with it.  I had never eaten any venison that had been canned before so this was a first.  I decided to try and make a shredded venison taco.    I proceeded as follows.

1 jar of canned venison.

taco seasoning to taste.  For me that’s about 2 TBS

1 TBS Camp Dog Cajun seasoning,, add that to everything.

onions

sharp cheddar cheese

taco sauce

Recipe:  add a couple TBS of oil to a hot pan,  then add canned venison.  Stir a couple minutes until warm.  Proceed to add the seasoning mix and a quarter cup of water.  Stir seasoning mix in completely.  Once seasoning is mixed in and meat is warm, heat your tortillas.  Add hot meat to tortilla and then top with onions, cheese, and sauce.  These taco’s are great.  More authentic like shredded Mexican beef.

Note: If you like cooked onions instead of fresh cut, add them to oil a couple minutes before the venison.

This past weekend my brother-in-law picked me up for another fun-filled weekend of deer hunting on our property in Michigan.  As we were driving the 3 hour journey we had some conversations about life, family, deer management, and hunting.  One particular conversation stood out in my mind and as a result it may make some of you better at taking game in the future.  I was talking to Aaron about how some people I know can shoot fly’s off targets at 40 yards and farther but when that animal gets in front of them SWING AND A MISS…. over and over again it happens.  I used to do it repeatedly when I was younger until I got a pre-shoot routine down.  I was telling Aaron how I look at the animal I am going to take.  I pull back, think in my head pull the pin to the spot, let half a breath out and hold it, then squeeze the trigger.  immediately he said “I USE THE ASS METHOD”  I looked at him kinda funny and replied what is that.  Well this is what it is and I believe it can work for some of you. 

A.S.S. METHOD

1.  Anchor your bow-string

2. Sight in on the animal

3. Squeeze the trigger

If you have a pre-shot routine in your head you are less likely to miss the shot.  You concentrate on what you’re doing properly and not what the deer is doing, or how large the antlers are, or whatever goes through the guy with Buck Fever’s head.  So next time your out, think A.S.S. and bring home that big buck. 

Thank you Aaron for the great tip.

Shots in the distance

 November 15 in Michigan is a day everyone know, even non hunters.  400,000 gun hunters head out to the woods.  This is a thought I had As I sat quietly 20 feet closer to God.  It was just getting light as legal shooting time approached.  Right at legal light a shot was fired in the distance, then another, then another.  I sat in my stand watching 2 deer under me.  As they walked through the woods unsuspectingly more shots rang out around the area just none were mine.  As the deer left my area a though came to my mind.  Who were those people shooting, what were they shooting at?, a buck of a lifetime, a spike, a doe, did the shot run true, did they miss.  Was it the person reading this right now.  I don’t know, but what I do know is as I’ve wrote before it’s all about the experience whether it’s me and my family enjoying a harvest or whether it’s you and your family.  A couple years ago, I was up north sitting in my blind when a shot close to me rang out..  The shot came from the property directly behind us, just after the shot a loud whoooooooooooooo  whoooooooooooooooo rang out through the woods.  I knew at that point that one lucky hunter just shot a huge whitetail buck.  I invisioned all the large bucks on trail camera wondering which one it was.  A lot of people would be mad they didn’t get the big buck, I just thought of the experience he must be having and relived some of my past experiences and encounters with bucks.  Although I didn’t harvest a buck those days, they were great days to be in the woods.  Make sure you teach your children to hunt and to learn there weapons inside and out.  They will have the best experiences of there lives in the woods.  Keep shooting, hopefully your shots are the ones I hear.  Congratulations to all who harvested there animals this year, if you did not harvest maybe you can relive your experiences and find it wasen’t such a bad year after all.  I will leave you with this saying I once seen..  Kids that hunt and fish don’t mug old ladies.

Lets check out the specs on this knife.

Stainless steel pommel at base of handle for hammering
Emergency whistle integrated into lanyard cord

SPECS:

SHEATH FEATURES:
Fire starter ferrocerium rod locks into sheath, striker notch incorporated into back of knife blade

Land to air rescue instructions
Diamond sharpener integrated into sheath for on-the-go sharpening
Priorities of survival pocket guide contains Bear’s survival essentials

I received this knife for Christmas last year. I am a avid hunter and wanted the knife because I watch all the survivor shows on tv. I love Bear Grylls show and also if you have checked out his website at all he does alot of cool things to help out around the world. http://www.beargrylls.com check it out. Back to the knife. The blade I found is made of good steel, it has not chipped or dulled on me the whole year. I have used it to cut trees in half, gut multiple deer, start a fire with ease, hammer stuff with it. You get the picture. When I gutted the deer the handle feels very comfortable in your hand, it opened the deer up with ease cutting through the ribs all the way to the neck in one swipe. I split the pelvic bone with ease and have used it to hack at bone with no blade dullness or chipping. I have had other knives that the tips have broken off, blades chip, they dull after gutting one deer. This knife is still going strong. The serrated edge works great, there is a whistle on the handle for situation where you might get lost. The sheath had the ferral rod in it, a sharpening stone on the back, and also a survival pamplet to help if you need it. My brother once laughed at me, cause you know, it’s a gimmick thing. I tell you the gimmick is for real, it has been a great knife for various situations and I would buy this Gerber BG knive series again. I hope you all Like this product review, This is not a paid review.

A Birthday Buck To Remember.

It’s another chilly November 10th morning 15 feet up in my tree stand.  You might say whats so special about the 10th of november?   Well 2 things.  1 it’s my birthday, and 2, 9 times out of 10 it’s during the rut.  As I sat in my tree stand as a fairly new archer.  I can remember it like it was yesterday.  There was no action, no deer, just a few squirrels and birds around. Well you might say whats so special about that.  Well at this time in my life our family did not really celebrate birthdays, I had not gotten a present in years.  Prior to that I had always received presents so it had been kinda a big change for a kid.  I’m not saying that presents have to be given or that I was lacking as a child I was definitely not.  It was just a change.  So enough of that and back to the story.  As I sat there in one of my favorite places, a tree stand with my bow.  I started to pray as I do 99% of the time even to this day.  The tree stand is like my closet as it says in the bible, its dark, usually pin drop quiet, it’s a great place for prayer.  My prayer that day was (I pray to you heavenly Father on this great morning that you have given us, I thank you for letting me out in this great creation of yours, enjoying everything you have made.  Father I ask you today to bring me a buck for my birthday, I have not received anything for my birthday in the last years and this is all I ask for today.  In Jesus name AMEN. )  I then opened my eyes and scanned the woods for ever so slight movement.  Nothing….. So I continued to scan for the next ten minutes or so until out of the corner of my left eye I caught a deer walking.  I looked closer and it was coming from about 100 yards out walking to my stand.  The deer approached closer and closer and at about 60 yards I could see a small rack on its head.  A six point, I was soooo excited and began to shiver a little.  The buck continued to approach my bait.  I grabbed my bow as the deer turned right on the trail coming to the bait.  I drew back my bow and tried to remember all the lessons my dad had tought me.  Again and again draw smooth, pull the pin to behind the shoulder, take a breath and let 1/2 out and hold.  release……  My release was true and I had arrowed the basket rack six point a little back but still a kill shot.  I began to shake tremendously and immediately after began to thank God for such a great buck.  I walked back to the cabin and got my dad and uncle to find the deer.  We tracked the deer in the snow for a while,  at one point I was praying again to find the deer.  Then it appeared a nice blood trail up the hill, a small 6 point laying in a hole.  I was so happy as my dad congratulated me and as I said to my uncle ” I think you should gut it for me since its my birthday”  I didn’t have to gut just drag.  I was sooo happy that day and was to this date one of the best birthdays I can remember.  The only one that strikes me more was when my dad gave me his 7mm rifle out of the blue on my birthday.  So for all you out there that enjoyed this story. Remember that it does not have to be a 23 point non-typical to become the best memories of your life. Also, I suggest that you try prayer in the stand it will change your life trust me….

Ruttin’ Review: The Silent Retriever

Posted in 6or7, antlers, archery, bear, deer, experience, fishing, fleece, g5, g5 quiver, guns, Hunting, outdoors, recipe, reviews, Ruttin' Review, scent-lok, sheds, sportsman, team dirt, typical, Uncategorized, vertigo with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2012 by THENONTYPICALSPORTSMAN

The Silent Retriever… What a good concept. I don’t know how many times I have been up in my tree stand and well, you all know what happens next. There goes your warm gloves, your quiver, or even your bow. Now its prime time hunting and something you need is now on the ground. I’m pretty sure most of you have had this happen more than once, I’m here to tell you there is now a solution to this problem. It’s called The Silent Retriever. This new product looks kinda like a fishing lure with a 25 ft multi purpose cord. The way it works is you lower it down quickly and quietly and it hooks to your item to pull it up. When I received The Silent Retriever I could not wait to give it a try. I went out back and placed a few items on the ground. A bow, Pair of gloves, hat, arrow, and binoculars. I hooked the retriever to the multipurpose rope and dropped it down. Quickly I brought up all the items and it only took 30 seconds. I was pleased at how quickly and efficiently it picked everything up. I highly recommend this product to everyone’s backpacks this upcoming season. I haven’t got a chance to try it out but I was thinking if i was ever lost and needed to catch fish this also might be a good item for other survival situations. I know that’s off topic but was just a thought. Go to http://www.thesilentretriever.com to check it out and pick one up for your upcoming season. You won’t be disappointed.
