OK   REALLY???? This past weekend I was back at it, deer hunting on our property in Manistee, MI.  After hunting the first day we decide to run to town and pick up a few bags of sugar beets to put out for the deer.  We pull in to the local trading post and see lots of sugar beets piled up by the gas pump, the front door, out by the road.  The first thing that got our attention was the fact that up until this week of hunting the sugar beets were $5.99 a bag or 3-$15.  Look on the counter and lo and behold now they are 3 bags for $18.. Kinda like the gas price gouging I would say but whatever that’s another topic.  We buy the bags and throw them in the back of the truck.  I look on the bag and lo and behold it says Grown in USA… Grown in Mexico.  The grown in Mexico box was checked.  First thing that came to my mind was usually people use old onion bags to put beets in and that is what it was Mexico onion bags with sugar beets in them.  After further review, nope nice little Mexican looking fellow with the absolute fact that these are actually Mexico grown Beets.  OK just so people know, Sebewing Michigan is the sugar beet CAPITAL OF THE WORLD.  The CAPITAL OF THE WORLD… So why is it that we have Mexico grown sugar beets in Michigan at all.  I love the fact that we can keep other countries economies going but let our own Michigan growers suffer because of it.  I will never buy those beets again after noticing this and I guess if there are no beets except those the deer will get some sort of American carrots, apples, corn who knows. This is ridicules we need to stop the madness.   Please comment your thoughts, please subscribe to my blog, tell friends, and have a great day.

Posted in 6or7, antlers, archery, bear, deer, experience, fishing, fleece, g5, Hunting, outdoors, recipe, reviews, scent-lok, sheds, sportsman, team dirt, typical, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2011 by THENONTYPICALSPORTSMAN

Well last night I was gonna cook some chicken.  After discussing a few options with my wife, we decided to make a BBQ pineapple Chicken with red skinned potatoes, squash, and onion foil packets.  After further review!!!! Delicious.  So here is what you need:

  1. 1 1/2 LBS of chicken breast
  2. Red Skin Potatoes
  3. Sweet Onion
  4. Squash(yellow and green)
  5. Butter
  6. BBQ Sauce
  7. pineapple
  8. Olive Oil
  9. Salt
  10. Pepper
  11. Emiril’s Essence
  12. 3 tbs of bourbon(Jim Beam)

First get your grill heated to a high heat.  While that is going, quarter your red potatoes, slice your squash and onion, and place on a large piece of foil.  Use a little olive oil to coat and a tablespoon of butter on top.  Season with salt, pepper, and the Emeril’s essence and close packet.  Poke a few small holes on top of the foil and place on grill.  Now grab your chicken breast and slice in half like filleting a fish to get 2 thinner breasts.  After all chicken is slices set aside.  The Sauce, take your favorite bbq sauce(I use Sweet Baby Rays) put a cup to 2 cups in a chopper or I use my wife’s smoothie machine. Now add about 1 to 1 1/2  half inch slices of pineapple to the sauce cut in large chunks.  Add a tsp salt, pepper, 3tbs of bourbon,  and Emiril’s to the sauce and chop or blend until pineapple is diced.  If you like chunks of pineapple in the sauce cut a few up and add afterwards.  Now that the sauce is done place the foil veggies on the top rack and lightly oil the chicken breasts.  Place on grill and lightly coat with the BBQ sauce plain only,  After cooking til done.  Place chicken in a broil pan and coat heavily with the pineapple BBQ sauce that you made.  Place under broiler until sauce gets thick, do not burn maybe 5 miniutes.  Now plate and serve.    You can also use this sauce on your favorite wild game like rabbit, oe grouse. Please subscribe to my blog if you like it, I appreciate everyone who reads..

I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do, its delish.  Throw me a line and let me know what you think!!!!!!

My First Whitetail

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 May 23, 2011 by THENONTYPICALSPORTSMAN

As I sit in my tree stand, my best friend only 120 yards away I remember or tried to all the things my dad had been telling me:

1. Be still

2. Be Quiet

3. Take a breathe and hold it to settle before shooting

4. Pull bow down to just behind front shoulder and smoothly release

5. If you hit a deer, watch it as far as you can see it so as to find the blood trail.

6. Remember trees, rocks, grass, anything different the deer runs by.

So im sitting in my tree stand 20 feet closer to God watching the squirrels come and go, watching the blue jays fly from tree to tree, and the passing crows making tons of noise in the sky.  I then look over and lo and behold 11 yeah I said it 11 does and little ones are working their way into my bait.  OK before people say anything this was like 22 years ago and yes baiting in Michigan was legal then.  As the deer filtered around me I remember a couple little ones kinda playing and fighting around the bait.  One would come in and raise its legs and jump on the other ones back, and visa versa.  After watching them go at it for a while and the other ones eating, they started to walk off.  One by one right by my stand, single file 10 yards away.  As I watched them walking off I heard a stick snap off to the right.  I turned my head and lo and behold a nice 8 point buck with about a 16 inch spread was walking down the same path as the does.  It was rut time and he knew what he was after.  As he got closer to the stand I eased up and grabbed my bow and got ready.  The buck eased its way down the run and stopped!!! 8 yards right there.  I tried to calm myself as I was shaking vigorously.  As i drew my bow I remembered and took the deep breath, let half out and held.  As I settled the pin behind the shoulder I released the Easton arrow tipped with a wasp 4 blade.  I watched the arrow pierce the side of the buck and prepared to watch it run off.  To my surprise though, I was stunned.  The buck in his mighty glory just stood there.  I thought I missed for a second even though i knew I had hit the deer.  I looked again and seen the hole, blood dripping out the side.  He put his head down and started following the does again.  I now am dumb founded as the deer just walks away.  I am wanting to mak trees but he is just right there.  The buck walks about 20 yards behind me and stops.  After looking around he suddenly bolts straight left, I watch anxiously as he runs 20 yards falls spins in a circle 2 times and passes.  I then get really excited shaking out of my boots.  I’m sure it was a whole five minutes before I look over and here comes another 8 point into the bait I had another tag but It was a smaller basket rack buck and I had bagged what I came for.  As the sun faded into the sunset my buddy came and got me, I explained to him what I had shot and he didn’t believe me at first.  We walked over and to his surprise a nice 8 point lay there in the flash lit dark.  We left and met our dads and little to our surprise it was a great night, not only did I shoot a nice 8 point, but my buddies dad shot a nice 8 point, and my dad a 6 point.  3 deer in one night of hunting.. I have never experienced an evening of hunting since then as far as harvesting.  We returned to the boat and returned home.  It was and is one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had.  I hope all of you have had a memorable experience like mine.  If so please share in the comments.  Thank you Hope you enjoyed this post.

Game Time Recipes: Venison Onion Burgers

Posted in 6or7, antlers, archery, bear, deer, experience, fishing, fleece, g5, Hunting, outdoors, recipe, reviews, scent-lok, sheds, sportsman, team dirt, typical, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2011 by THENONTYPICALSPORTSMAN

This is not your typical venison burger, that’s because it’s not a burger at all.  Its more like a sloppy joe and who doesn’t like that right… Well my brother I guess but that’s a whole nother issue lol.  Well this is what you will need for this amazing sandwich:

  1. Venison burger I use 5 lbs big family
  2. 4 cans of french onion soup(or approx 1 can per pound)
  3. Flour to thicken
  4. onion buns or your favorite hoagie rolls

Brown the venison until done, add in 4 cans of french onion soup (I use Cambell’s) heat the mixture to a constant simmer.  While the meat mixture is simmering add flour slowly( about 4 tbs to start)  mix flour in well and watch mixture thicken.  Keep adding flour tbs at a time until mixture is not  watery.  Place your bun on a plate cover with onion burger  and enjoy.

Other possible topping that are great:

  1. homemade cole slaw
  2. fresh grated sharp cheddar cheese/ or pepper jack

I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do, its delish.  Throw me a line and let me know what you think!!!!!!
