Cool Stuff – Hunting
“How to Skin a Deer”

A few years ago I posted step-by-step instructions on How to Skin a Pig. I was on a javelina hunt in west Texas and proved that javelina could be made to taste delicious. Today, I’m going to show you How to Skin a Deer (spoiler alert: it’s very similar, but we could all use a refresher.) I recently made a new friend here in Texas named Roy who is a […]

“One Pot Pheasant Stew”

This is a recipe that I made last week while cleaning out some of the extra game meat in my freezer and I just loved it. I had several whole pheasants left over from my Adventure Getaway in Virginia this past December and I decided given this never-ending winter, it was high time to make the most of it, and turn them into a warm and hearty dish. You’re going […]

“How to Clean a Shotgun Ejector”

Did you know, that if you have a break-action shotgun, you are supposed to clean your ejector from time to time? I didn’t until recently. When on one of my Adventure Getaways in December, I discovered that during my flight to Virginia, my steel gun case had been tossed about so much that suddenly my shells weren’t ejecting from the shotgun every time I opened it. In this video, my […]

“10 Things for Women to Wear in the Outdoors”

Ladies, I’m sure we can all agree that the quality of clothing available for women to wear in the outdoors is seriously lame. At least the stuff they call “hunting” clothing. It is usually men’s clothing scaled down in size. I pretty much never wear it. It steals my joy. So what I’ve learned to do is mix it up and find things from mostly non-hunting retailers. As long as […]

“Bourbon, Barnsley & Beautiful Ladies”

I just returned from yet another magical Girl Hunter Weekend. There is something about these weekends, every single time I say to myself, “wow, I couldn’t have hand picked a better group of women to come together as total strangers and bond as if they had known each other for years.” I feel very lucky to witness and take part in this sort of togetherness. So before I go any […]

“Girls, Guns & Butter”

I just got back from hosting the first Adventure Weekend of the year with 20 wonderful women from all over the map. They brought a warmth and fearlessness with them, since many of them had never even held a gun before, driven an ATV, thrown on waders and gone fly fishing, or sat in the saddle of a horse. Some of them had, but many of them hadn’t, and they […]
