Great Afternoon youth rabbit hunt. took My Nephew Luke and my Buddy's son Devon for 12yr old Devons first rabbit hunt. 19 shots fired !!!! one bunny killed LOL!!! Luke has killed dozens so I made him carry the contender and he let Devon do most of the shooting. Great dog work.

(10/14/10) Woodcock hunt in N.E. Ohio along a major north to south tributary creek valley.
One of my go to woodcock haunts.









My favorite hunting pal and I bagged these and 4 others earlier in the week and cooked them up on the grill. Had about 10 flushes in an hour and a half on this day. Seems like one day they are here and the next day they are pretty scarce.



My recipe for grilled woodcock which turned out pretty good;

Dry pluck and gut birds
soak birds in kosher salt and water brine for at least 1/2 hr.

Brown crushed garlic cloves in olive oil to light brown,
remove garlic,
add butter and melt into oil
add a bit of orange or lemon zest and stir for a couple minutes or so,(I prefer the orange)
pour into a glass or ceramic cup and let cool a bit.

Remove birds from brine and rinse and clean well
Split birds in half down breast and back lengthwise using a large, sharp butcher knife,

Coat birds with oil mixture

dust birds lightly with;
kosher salt
black pepper
smoked paprika
powdered thyme

heat up grill on high, clean and oil the grates,
roast birds about 5 min per side with cover on grill to prevent flames.

eat em up with rice and vege and fav beverage and don't forget to share with your best hunting pal.


P.S. I often will let birds age in the fridge up to a week and it seems to improve flavor a bit. Half of this batch were aged the other were fresh.
Either way they are as good as eating "organic" can get.

Re: 2010/2011 Photo Thread

This is the first year for my friend and I to hunt small game. We both took our boys (age 7) on 10/9 for mentored youth and had no luck.

We went again on opening day (10/16) and I got two squirrels. My son is holding the first one and the other pic is after I got the second one. Both headshots with Savage MarkII, Remington Sub-sonics, fixed 4x Bushnell .





We cleaned them in the field and cooked them up that night. None of the kids wanted to try it, and the wives had to be coaxed.

Oh well.
