Can You Hear Me??

HEARING PROTECTION LIKE NO OTHER! As if 31dB of noise reduction wasn’t enough for Walter’s Razor “X” Digital Ear Bud Headsets. The electronic hearing protection and enhancement buds work flawlessly for shooters or hunters. I am highly impressed also with the new lightweight design that sits comfortably aound the neck. This around the neck design has retractable ear buds, it is out of the way from cheek welds on shotguns and traditional rifles or AR-pattern rifles. The Razor “X” package includes two different styles of noise reducing foam tips. There are four different sizes to ensure a proper fit for maximum noise reduction. Walker’s Razor “X” ear plugs also come with a cord for recharging and a wall adapter, along with a Walker’s bag for storage. Included are instructions which are very clear and easy to understand. The rechargeable LIPO battery, 250 mAH battery powers the Razon “X”, providing 10 hours of use. Battery life is prolonged by an auto-shutoff function that engages after four to six hours. Simply push any button on the unit and hearing enhancement returns back on and the timer restarts. These buttons also retract the ear bud cords. Because they are designed at an impressive 31dB of noise reduction, they allow for very loud environments without damaging hearing. This places the Razor “X” ahead of the rest in protection offered by earplugs and ahead of what many popular earmuffs deliver. The widely used green Howard Leight over the ear noise cancelling muffs only have a 22dBNRR. The plugs passed my extreme protection tests when I stood behind a 300 Win Mag rifle firing and didn’t flinch. I would normally flinch with each round fired wearing standard electronic ear muffs. The Hi Gain omni-dirctional microphones provide clear sound enhancement allowing you to hear firearm instructors’ directions while training or for casual conversations on the range. The Razor “X” HD digital speakers provide a wide range of audio quality that enhances the users’ experience. The standard electronic ear muffs hurt my ears and head after weaing them for less than thirty minutes. They also got in the way of my cheek weld. I had to constantly reposition the muffs and then the recoil would displace them. The cost: $119.00—– Protecting your hearing while enjoying clear conversations on the range or in the woods……PRICELESS!

African Queen, My Beautiful Mother- in- Law! Circa: 1966- 1969

African Queen, My Beautiful Mother- in- Law! Circa: 1966- 1969

You don’t have to be a  hunter to be a true outdoors- woman.  Take my Mother-in-Law,  Dotsy Boineau for example.  She was in her late 30’s and though she loved to travel, going to Africa was the last thing on her mind. Her husband, who loved to hunt, wanted to take an African safari and she was reluctant.  She agreed only after it was arranged for stops in Egypt and Austria immediately following Africa.  To her amazement, day one African Safari,  she was hooked and four safaris later, Dotsy was a lady who had experienced adventures most people only dream about.   She loved experiencing the thrill of the hunt with her husband and her son, Trippett, Jr.  (My future husband!) who was only  twelve years old when he went on the first safari.   With each safari, their experiences and hunts were those always to be remembered. Every day on Safari was packed with adventure, beauty, danger, and wonderment.  Her fondest memories included her interactions with the villagers.   She told me stories such as the one where a female villager walked for hours to get to the camp to retrieve film from a camera that had been used to take a photograph of her.  She was worried that her soul had been stolen. Being 500 miles from civilization didn’t mean they missed important creature comforts and some luxuries as well.   Every morning, at four AM sharp, they were awakened with hot tea served on a silver tray. “Harbari Harbari“, the servers called out as they brought them tea  and to signal it was time to rise.   They dressed, had breakfast and were out on the hunt by five AM.  Approximately 23 men made up the camp each with his own role from trackers, guides, skinners, and cooks.  The dinner table was always set with a perfectly pressed damask tablecloth and Dotsy brought an artificial magnolia centerpiece all the way from SC so that they had one to enjoy in Africa.  The meals were beautifully prepared from fresh meat from the day’s hunt and was served along with vegetables and fruits. Outdoor showers and outhouses were set up. Water warmed over the fire pits, poured into bags was hung from a tree and used for showering and was enhanced with a  circular cover for privacy.   When you pulled the string, the water was released offering a much needed shower.  Their soiled clothes from the day’s hunt were set outside their tent  that evening and in the morning, they were returned, washed and neatly ironed and folded.  You could not be tempted to pee outside your...

Wild Boar Roast – The Harvest

Wild Boar Roast – The Harvest

On my recent visit home to Pennsylvania, I brought with us, this beautiful wild boar roast.  My husband, Trippett harvested this perfect 165 lb sow in January, and this was the first time I had ever cooked wild boar.  I truly just went with my instincts on how to prepare it.  With no time to look up recipes, I simply covered it with virgin olive oil and rubbed it generously with course sea salt.  I used my sister, Lucie’s Mediterranean mix of multicolored peppercorns, fresh rosemary and embellished by a fresh bay leaf harvest from my Aunt Rosie’s garden in San Jose, CA.    Next, I placed the roast in my Mom’s treasured electric roasting oven.  I put a cup of organic apple cider vinegar and two cups of water in the roasting pan.  I set the temperature at 375 and let it roast!  Here is a great reference for cooking times  for pork roasts – I have to say, everyone said it was one of the best roasts and it was particularly wonderful since none of my relatives had ever had wild boar. The following day, Lucie made this amazing soup using the left over bone.  She covered the bone in water and  simmered it along with fresh carrots, celery, onions, and garlic which had been gently sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with sea salt and cracked pepper.  Lucie loves bay leaves and always adds them to her soups.  Lastly, just before serving, she added fresh  sautéed zucchini to the soup.  What a beautiful way to give thanks for the harvest by not wasting anything.       Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Like this:Like...

Take a Stand on Treestand Safety!

Take a Stand on Treestand Safety!

Ladder Treestand Safety Tips by Dana Sacia, Guest Blogger If you are a bow hunter, you have heard time and time again … Safety first, Safety first, Safety first. You may even know someone that has had a treestand accident. The thought of that happening intimidated me so much that it took me years to climb up and get in one. I realized if I wanted to experience bow hunting from high ground, I was going to have to figure out how to over come this fear. The first thing I needed to do was to become educated on how to be as safe as possible. I wanted to ensure myself memorable and enjoyable hunts for years to come without an accident. It didn’t take long to realize it really is pretty simple. All I had to do was apply a little basic knowledge and become aware of the importance of safety. Once that happened, I was able to enjoy the excitement of hunting from a new view and perspective while remaining safe and sound. Safety Harnesses Wearing a safety vest or full body harness is one of the most important aspects to consider before climbing into a treestand. Statistics show that 30% of bow hunters will experience a fall or accident from lack of safety while hunting out of a ladder stand. Being in a hurry can be the number one result of an accident. As soon as you get into the stand, strap yourself in and then get settled. A strong and sturdy safety rope (or strap) should be attached to both your harness and the tree to prevent you from falling more than 12 inches. See more at:  Summit Journal  Safety harness should fit securely. Good harnesses have shock absorption and are made of highly durable materials. The comfort of safety harness has greatly improved over the last several years. Some brands of safety harnesses include: • Hunter Safety Systems: Contour • Summit Stands: Fast-Back Deluxe • Robinson Outdoors: Tree Spider • Big Game Trees: EZ On • Gorilla: G20 Setting up a Ladder Stand I personally hunt out of a ladder stand so the first thing to consider when preparing to set one up is finding a healthy tree. Try to pick a solid, strong, and heavy tree. Make sure you choose one that is nest free to any animals so you are not interrupting any home. Once you have selected the perfect tree, clean the debris at the base of it. This will eliminate tripping over any rocks or thick brush when you are entering or exiting the stand. It will also show you if...

See “ME” in She Magazine!!!

  WHILE MANY WOMEN ARE PASSIONATE about things like shoes and jewelry, Maggie Boineau is crazy about camo clothes and the great outdoors. “I grew up in a hunting family. As a young girl, I had my own BB gun and bow. I always loved the outdoors, and my brothers even allowed me to use their guns occasionally.” She became serious about the sport after her daughters left for college and she had more time. When her husband, who has been hunting all his life, bought her a 20-gauge over/under shotgun, he and Maggie began dove hunting. It wasn’t long before she delved into turkeys, hogs, and ducks. Three years ago, Maggie began hunting deer, her current favorite. “Deer season is the longest, which has enabled me to gain a lot of experience and success.” She and her husband travel throughout the year and are currently looking to expand their hunting territory. For Maggie, the thrill of the hunt is the most appealing. “Being outdoors and being able to harvest my own food is very important to me. There is not much I don’t love about hunting. That close to nature, you never know what you will see, hear, or experience.” She decided to share her passion with others through a blog, titled Camo 365. “I spent so many hours in the deer stand and realized I had some awesome thoughts I wanted to share. After jotting down ideas for six months, I decided to start a blog.” The blog is open to everyone. “Men who encourage their women to hunt will end up with more hunts than those who don’t. My husband loves hunting with me. He has gone on so many more hunts since we started hunting together, and now he rarely goes without me.” Camo 365 was officially launched in September 2015, just in time for dove season. “This became the perfect way for me to incorporate my passion with my desire to write. I have so many ideas and would love to spend more time on publishing posts.” Along with the blog came a personal mission for Maggie to wear camo every day. “It is a statement of how important hunting and gun rights are to me.” THANKS TO THE DIFFERENT GAME SEASONS, Maggie’s hunting wardrobe has become extensive. “It was a bit frustrating at first, with a real void in women’s hunting clothes. That has changed now, and women have so many options for serious hunting clothes that actually fit! I always get compliments about wearing camo. Whether it’s a hat, jeans, or a jacket, my camo always sparks a conversation.” As a Realtor, she finds ways to maintain...
