Last night we took the Venison Tri-Tip and made a stew. Totoro declared dibs on the scraps and Squeaky was only too happy to help. I used a vacuum marinator to speed up the marination process.

2016-11-13: Hunting Pheasant at Naugatuck State Forest

November 13, 2016


Five years ago, my first successful hunt was Pheasant at the Big K Ranch in Oregon. Since then, I’d gone out a few more times, but never on public land. One of my hunting buddies researched Connecticut’s fish and game policies. As it turns out Connecticut buys approximately 15,000 birds and places them on state lands […]

As I mentioned last week, my friend sent me home with a nice venison backstrap from the doe he took. Having only cooked venison once before I was eager to try it a different way. Last time I sliced it into medallions and seared both sides in bacon fat. This time I decided to season […]

Long Hiatus, Big Changes Coming

March 29, 2012


So, the photo gallery I’d linked to in early posts went down a few weeks ago, taking all of my embedded images with it. Fortunately, I’ve re-uploaded all of my old photos, as well as some new ones to a new picasa web album. Also, there is now an associated G+ account. I will fix […]

At noon, I took the train over to Brooklyn to check out Crossfit Virtuosity, a crossfit club owned by the Founder of Crossfit NYC, Keith Wittenstein. As far as […]
