A New Year, A New Nilgai

The Deerslayer household has been blessed to start 2015 with our second nilgai in the freezer. It was a pretty big deal… comparable to when our daughters were born. It was a goal that Deerslayer had set for himself during this hunting season.  Mission… Continue Reading “A New Year, A New Nilgai”

Is Rib Meat Worth Saving?

As most of my readers know, Deerslayer and I were blessed with a harvest of South Texas nilgai back in January.  Other than elk, it provided more meat than anything I’ve ever encountered.  With careful packaging (and three freezers) we were able to accommodate ALL of… Continue Reading “Is Rib Meat Worth Saving?”

Like every other deerslayer’s wife on the planet, as hunting season winds down, I come to the realization that, as much as I embrace my vocation, being the wife of a deer slayer isn’t always all that great.  Don’t get me wrong!   There’s no… Continue Reading “Not Always the Cat’s Meow (Venison Marsala)”

How to be the Queen of the Hunting Camp

(Percolated Coffee) Things just aren’t the same as they used to be. In the old Westerns, the beautiful leading lady would ride up on a horse, her make-up fully intact, hair perfect. She’d slide off the side of said horse into the arms of… Continue Reading “How to be the Queen of the Hunting Camp”
