The Beauty of Antlers!

The Beauty of Antlers!

  European skull mounts have been very popular for years.  There are so many creative ways to bedazzle them, but for me, I appreciate them just the way they are.  My 9 point and my husband, Trippett’s 8 point look beautiful on our piano in our library.  So, for now, that is where they will stay. This is the perfect time of the year to get out in the woods and  find antler sheds.  Decorating ideas are endless. If you have a prized mount or shed, please  share your decorating ideas!

Thinking About Fishing

Thinking About Fishing

My “backyard” beckons … I have been all about hunting for months now.   With the beautiful waters of Murrells Inlet in my backyard,  I am reminded of the amazing opportunity there is to get out in the Inlet and fish.  But now is not the time.  The waters are cold and the fish are not biting.  But, Spring is around the corner.  For now, there is turkey season on the horizon.  That is all right with me.  I have some calling to practice and gear to get ready.  Dates have been booked for hunts and I can’t wait to get back in the woods.

Venison Chili Recipe

Quick and easy recipe!   You can’t beat venison chili on a cold winter day.   I  have professional processors package our venison and the packages are approximately 1 lb each and I use two packages  This chili  recipe is hot and  spicy!  But you can always substitute the type of canned tomatoes and peppers if you want less spicy. Start with thawing out two packages of venison burger.  I prepare my vegetables first:  Chop up the  yellow onion and 6 crushed cloves of garlic. I sauté them together in grape seed oil until they are soft but not brown.  I always sprinkle my vegetables with light salt and pepper to bring out the flavors.    Set aside.  I then chop up and sauté in the same fry pan the sweet red pepper and two jalapeño peppers.  Set aside.  Add more oil to the fry pan and add the venison and and cook through.  In the last 5 minutes of cooking the venison,  I add the vegetables to combine all the flavors.   You can use a stock pot or crockpot for the rest of the preparation.  A crockpot is perfect if you have time.  I spray the crockpot with vegetable spray for easy cleaning later.  Add the meat and vegetables with a slotted spoon.  Add tomatoes and  drained beans (see photo below for full description).  Cook on high for two hours.  If needed, you can add a cup of water if it is too thick.  Turn on low for one hour.  Now is the perfect time to taste test.   Add sea salt, pepper, chili powder, onion powder,  and cumin powder to taste.  Spices will lose their strength if you add them at the beginning, so wait till the last hour to add you spices.  You can keep the crockpot on low for hours and that is what makes it great for parties.  Top off with shredded Hot Habanero Cheddar Cheese from Cabot!! Wow!!!  Serve with corn muffins! Ingredients: 2 packages of venison burger 1 large to medium chopped sweet red pepper 2 jalapeño peppers cut in rings 1 large to medium  chopped yellow onion 5 cloves of garlic crushed Grapeseed oil (excellent for sautéing vegetables) 2 cans organic pinto beans 1 28 oz. can of whole plum tomatoes 1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes 1 14 oz can of hot chili style tomatoes 1 14 oz can of chili style tomatoes 1 10 oz can of Ro Tel mild or hot tomatoes with green chilies Spices:  chili powder, onion powder, sea salt, black pepper, ground cumin Hot Habanero Cheese     Share this:Click to share on...
