Eat What You Kill

Immediately upon my return to NYC, I threw one of my blocks of Six Medallions into the fridge to defrost. For dinner this evening, I cooked them very traditionally. I let them warm to room temperature, dried them with paper towels, salted and peppered both sides, and dropped them into a hot skillet oiled with […]

Adding a New Tool to the Toolkit: Bow

I’m still rather new to the hunting scene, but my brief perusal of the NY State Fish and Game Laws tells me one thing. Want to hunt deer and live in Manhattan? Buy a bow: About six months ago I fooled around with a bow at a local archery range/proshop Pro-Line Archery. Had a good […]

Until I cleaned the Pheasants on Friday, I’d never taken a blade to a recently living animal. However, I have dealt with a roaster chicken, so the pheasant wasn’t so new. Processing Six on the other hand was like a combination of a slasher flick and Predator. I’d read the fundamentals twice, once in Jackson […]
