Bet you complain about the style/ brand of beer when someone buys it for ya....

With bringing one person you are now down to $10. For free shooting on almost every shotgun, hand gun, and other platforms that is more than worth it. Throw $20 off $100 coupon for reeds, free round of clays at rice creek in there and seems like a pretty good deal

Then there's supporting a local mn company that hosts this type of event that I am not sure any other big box store would ever do....you know, one that allows hunters, outdoorsman, sportsman a chance to purchase items at probably the best price you will find. While also having access to all brand reps/ experts in one place

You will definitely see me there.... you can keeping yelling at ppl to get off your lawn

Sous Vide Bacon- BLT's

Been a while but been tinkering with a new kitchen device that is definitely worth the $. I got it on Black Friday Amazon for a killer deal %50, but since I have seen it on fluctuating sales and close to that price.

Nova sous vide is brand I got

Have seen a few recipes on here or ways to do sous vide but this immersion style is literally set it and forget it. As weird as the concept is, I have now done several things that you honestly cant beat with any other cooking method I have seen.

Done steaks, brats, pork chops, chicken, Egg bites, creme brule, key lime cheese cakes, and now bacon

Local meat market has Bacon cut thick like a slab so I decided to do BLT's. After researching everyone suggested mandatory 24 hour minimum and most even said the more the better up to 7-8 days which seemed a little overkill.

Started with the bacon Monday night planning to assemble Thursday but plans stalled that and it turned to 5 day bacon in the sous vide set at 145. Weird right? After putting in put with immersion sous vide I only had to add water a couple times through out week so aside from that no work. Friday I took the bacon out and opened the package. All the fat had rendered out and the meat cooked in the fat the whole time, bacon confit almost? It did become very brittle as it wanted to break apart since a lot of the fat that is usually there was now gone. Still could transfer it to cast iron skillet for a very quick sizzle just to add a crisp which also firmed it back up to one solid piece.

It was kinda comparable to pork belly for consistency but still it's own thing. Pic doesn't really show much of the bacon but at the end of the day, ya'll know what bacon looks like- Delicious.

Wolf count up 25% in Minnesota,,,word is they fluctuated with deer herds and lack of hunting. Still would like to see a season.


saw this article....dont expect a season anytime soon. Wolves are still federally protected and there is no bill currently in the works to change this. A month or so ago a bill that had made it's way through house reps and senate but ultimately stalled after change of POTUS. I am sure another one will get introduced but if you followed the last process it took about 2 years of work to not happen. I believe our MN DNR was even ready to propose a season for this winter if it had been passed through.

Moral of the story lets your state reps know anytime/way you can...

Anyone ever go for grouse on public land? Looking to get out this Saturday for a bit with my boy. Somewhere not too far out from the cities. Hinckley area preferably. Any help or suggestions is always appreciated.


Absolutely....plenty of birds to be had. There are WMA's specific to grouse habitat. Not a ton around Hinckley area but take a look

Crappie333 that is a Giant!....still cleaning up pics but seeing a lot of up and comers and one specific deer that has a lot of potentials. I am hoping as we moved into Sep I will start seeing the mature guys. Want this guy to make it at least 1 more year.

Biggest bachelor group was 6 but they are all 1.5 and 2.5 year old deer...still nice to see the next gen

On a side note I will be chasing Bobcats again this winter

What a stud Eyehunter09, looks like a fairly young deer as well!....If he can sneak through this year he will be a really fun one to keep eyes on....I will be up in one week to check cams again, heard our turnip plots are looking dynamite with the consistent rain in Aug.

Always want to intrude as little as possible but now is the time it really matters, bachelor groups that we are seeing throughout Aug will start breaking up and establishing hierarchy. Personally I will move almost all cams from mineral sites to previous large rub/scrapes now so they can settle in then only check mid-day when the time is to hunt.

Next couple weeks the velvet should be shedding and showing true form for what's in store....season is almost here boys!

I was going to make my own mineral last season, never got around to it. Thought I'd forsure do one this year. However, on top of my blocks not working all that well, I'm now about 40 miles from the CWD hot zone and I'd prefer not to congregate deer unnaturally. It is still legal in my area, just personal preference I guess.


Yeah I hear you there....not a fan of deer farms for hunting or other purposes and it seems like they continue to be the culprit for identified CWD in areas

More deer on the mineral, tons of spike, forks, etc.....the size of the twin fawns is a testament to mineral. They hit it almost every other day
