  • Tree Stand Selection – The Basics

    Tim O'Neill
    25 Jan 2015 | 7:07 pm
    There are some really great reasons to use a tree stand during a hunt, but not all stands are designed for the same situations. I am going to cover the basic types and their best placement and location. These devices are great because they give you a view from 15 to 30 feet off the ground. The elevation also provides the hunter some scent protection, as well as a clearer shooting path. In some cases like bear hunting, that is a great place to be when your 600lb bruin comes ambling into range. I’m going to do an article next week on a few different kinds I have tried along with the pros and…
  • Cubed Peccary and Potatoes

    Rex
    24 Jan 2015 | 10:57 pm
    Cubed peccary and potatoes are a special treat. Part of the reason is that though peccary tastes similar to domestic pork, it usually isn’t nearly as fat as pork that is purchased in a store. That means that this recipe could probably be used for regular pork, but it is perfect for peccary. One of the great things about this recipe is that you can use pork roast or pork steaks, with the meat cut off the bones. The ingredient list calls for pork roast, but since the meat is cubed, just keep in mind that it isn’t absolutely necessary that you use a roast to make this meal. The…
  • Getting to Know Wild Peccaries

    Rex
    24 Jan 2015 | 10:54 pm
    Wild peccaries are animals that are hunted in the southern portion of the United States, though they are generally absent in the north. The meat is sweet, like that of commercially grown pork, but the flavor is often more robust because of the natural vegetation they eat. Though they aren’t actually a member of the pig family because of some differences in body structure, such as having only three toes on the hind feet, they will be treated here as if they were wild pigs. There are more similarities with pigs than there are differences. Peccaries are the only wild pigs that are native…

    Bighorn has a flavor that is unique to the animal and yet it does taste somewhat similar to sheep. Since these are such large, stocky animals, each leg can yield several large roasts. This is an excellent way to prepare one of the roasts to fill even the hungriest hunter’s appetite. This dinner is especially great when you know ahead of time that you are going to be having guests. With two or three side dishes, this meal can serve six or more people with ease. You won’t believe how delicious it is until you’ve tried it. Ingredients for Bighorn Roast: 6 pound bighorn roast,…
