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.

Rack or not to Rack

So as most of us know in michigan, this past weekend was opening of the Firearm deer season. A bunch of us guys got together and headed to the great northern woods for hunting, great food and a little razzing. So I’m gonna tell you a little story that let the guys razz away lol. Opening morning we all go out to our stand and one in our party was hunting the farthest stand back. He was sitting there when a nice 6 point came in. He was patient but the buck wouldn’t come in he just hung back in the brush. The buck came a little closer and it appeared he had a clear shot but tricky through the brush. He aimed steady and with a loud bang the gun went off. The buck stepped back and stood behind the brush. He then racked his bolt action slowly to eject the cartridge pushed the bolt forward quietly. The buck went off unscaved. So as he sat there looking at the thick spot he tried to shoot through, a nice spike horn came in. The buck eased his way closer. There he was broadside at 25 yards. The shot was completely clear. He raised his gun, put the crosshairs behind the shoulder. Then click !!!!! The gun did not fire. He immediately realized when he racked the 1st cartridge out quietly, he did not rack the bolt back far enough so the next cartridge did not load. Double disappointment for opening morning. Although we have all felt that pain in some form or another we had to razz him. What fun is deer camp with out some fun. The next 2 days were full of laughs and digs this time at his expense. There is nothing like deer camp, it’s the best experience for the sportsman. Like my buddy says there is no trout camp, bear camp, no rabbit camp. There is only one camp and that’s deer camp… Tell me your stories

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.

Ruttin’ Review: G5 Mag Loc 5 Arrow Quiver

Posted in 6or7, antlers, archery, bear, deer, experience, fishing, fleece, g5, g5 quiver, guns, Hunting, outdoors, recipe, reviews, scent-lok, sheds, sportsman, team dirt, typical, Uncategorized, vertigo with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2012 by THENONTYPICALSPORTSMAN

Well to start with here is a little about this great product:

  • Top riser-mounted quiver
  • Multiple-hole sight-mount bracket for vertical adjustment
  • Secures using a Super Magnet that allows quick and silent attaching/detaching
  • 1-piece design
  • Lightweight magnesium stem
  • Rubber over-molded hood
  • Accommodates fixed or expandable broadheads
  • Right/Left-Hand design

Ok well I have a good reason to do a review on a quiver.  The last two years I have broken both quivers I had while on my bow.  The first one I actually tripped and landed riser down on the ground and my quiver broke in half.  I can’t really say it was the quivers fault but hey.  The second I was lowering my bow down from the treestand the arrows hit the ground first, string was too long lol, but the top of the quiver broke right off.  So as I dreamed of a new quiver I still used the old one with no holder for the heads, it worked but was not visually appealing nor very safe.  Guess what, I got a new one for xmas.  The G5 Mag loc 5 arrow quiver.  I got to install it on my bow for the last week and a half of the season.  The quiver is very easy to install, took me 2 min and it looked great on my G5 Primal bow.  The metal construction was great, and I’m pretty sure it’s not going to break any time soon.  The dampeners are great for on the bow shooting.  The magnet attachment system is soooooo quiet not like those other plastic setups.  The price is mid level for quivers which is good in my opinion.  The other features are it can be used with fixed blades or expandables, can hold any arrow size including full metal jackets, and it comes in many camo patterns.   I used it on my last five hunts and loved it.  You can also get the magnet tree bracket for easy treestand use which I find very helpful in those mainstay stands.  Overall I cannot say anything bad about this setup, its quiet, cost-effective, more than functional in every situation you find yourself in.  I highly recommend you go out and get one today, you wont regret it.

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….
