Venison Stew

November 14, 2016


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 […]

3 Days of Hunting in Chelyabinsk Oblast: 9/5/2014-9/6/2014

September 10, 2014


Day 2 began with дождь (rain). On and off, it spent the next two days raining. We woke up at about 8am, in most cases, wearing our hunting garments from the day prior. After putting on rain garments, we ate a quick breakfast, mostly cold foods (bread, sausage, cheese) but also small molasses biscuits called […]

September 8, 2014


A few months ago, before the Ukrainian Crisis flared up, I was invited on a hunting trip in Chelyabinsk Oblast. Never one to turn down an opportunity, I heartily accepted. After the downing of MH17 and issues in East Ukraine, I was a bit concerned, but decided to go anyway as Donetsk is over a […]

Fall is here…time to braise Lamb Shanks

November 8, 2012


Been a long time since I made my last update. Between moving, family matters, work, and superstorm Sandy, haven’t spent any time upstate this year. Despite those issues, things are going well. I’m able to practice bow in my new apartment (via scaled-down deer targets and a large foam cube). After a month hiatus, I’ve […]

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 […]

Started Training, First Injury

January 10, 2012


Last weekend was simultaneously great, and disconcerting. I started out very well, I had fantastic Italian food Friday night. I had an excellent Brunch Saturday Morning. 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 […]
