My outdoor adventures started back in the hardwood ridges of the northeast back in the early 90's. For the most part I hunted deer and turkey, with the occasional squirrel hunt sprinkled in along the way. It didn't take me long to realize that hunting wasn't just a weekend activity, it was in my blood and something that I couldn't live without. As the seasons rolled by, I began to expand what I hunted and eventually relocated to Texas where doing something hunting related is part of my daily routine. This site is home to my adventures, links to my favorite wild game recipes and thoughts on today's pressing topics within the hunting community.

Sometimes, a big ol' juicy burger(and a beverage of your choice) just seems like the right call after a long afternoon hunt.
