Little did we know that the Kelly's had assembled their camp just two kilometres away from us at Stringy Bark Creek. You could hear McIntyre's gunshots ringing through the forest, ''we are going to eat the best grub for dinner,'' said Scanlon, ''yeah I love the taste of
Davy Crockett was an interesting man who loved the outdoors and had was one of the men who gave their life at the Alamo and had many accomplishments. Davy was born August 17,1786. He grew up poor, so he had to sometimes feed himself. This is where his love for outdoors took place. He would go in the wild woods of Tennessee, and he had a rifle he called “Old Betsy”.
I had never been in a stand before so you could imagine the excitement that was I was feeling. My uncle was near by and heard the shot and came over to help. I learned a lot that day about how to properly field dress, and process the deer. Once we go the deer home, we made homemade sausages, steaks, burger, and jerky. My personal favorite is the burger.
We then packed up and headed home. When we got home my dad took out the backstraps to cook and we brought the deer to Swank's Meats in St.Croix to get it ground up into ground venison. Shooting my first deer has changed me because it has changed the way I look at hunting. It has made me want to continue to hunt. It has also made me a more confident
Grocery shopping is a family tradition every weekend. At the market, we read the labels: pig liver, pig heart, pig blood, pig ears, pig knuckles, and the list goes on. Then, my family stops by the prepared meals aisle. There, I notice the listings of fried pig skin, and see an entire pig hanging on the steel hook. I ask my mother, “How can there be so many options for choosing meat?” She explains that when she was young and food was scarce, the Chinese believed in the saying, “Anything that walks, swims, crawls, or flies with its back to heaven is edible”.
At first, Danny’s dad mostly likes to catch pheasants in the nearby woods, which is owned by Mr. Hazzel, a rich neighbor. When you catch an animal that’s on somebody else’s land it is called “poaching”. But not easy to catch the birds, and they try to make traps for birds. One of the tricks Danny’s father teaches him is The Horse Hair Stopper. One time,
“Before the Civil War, when the first pit bulls were brought to America by English and Irish immigrants, they were a respected breed. As working dogs, they were kept as hunters and guardians, as well as herders and pets. ” says one pit bull lover. Someone else says that he has a pit bull, and as soon as people see the pit bull say, “that’s like bringing a cat into a chicken coop!” and yet the dog has done nothing but be good and walk with his owner. Another thing that people do to a pit bull is “people expect to hear about attacks by pit bulls” so if a dog attacks, and it looks like a pit bull, people will say it is a pit bull.
The barking of my dog. Pepper was just heading back with the stick I just threw, when I could smell steak through the kitchen window. I continued to play fetch with the thought of steak with mashed potatoes when I heard my mother 's voice yell, “CJ, it’s time for supper.” I didn’t want to stop playing with Pepper, so I stayed outside. My mother grew impatient and finally walked outside to get me. Before she did, she just stared through the window watching me play.
If you are like me, you are concerned about how we impact our planet, and what lifestyle choices we are willing to make. For years, I ran a small tearoom in a rural community, which meant anytime groceries were require, I had to make some hard choices such as whether to run into the grocery store in the big city, whether I could find what I needed locally, or whether to drop the item from my menu all together. Like most things in life, I chose to look around locally and find what I needed without having to restrict my menu. At first this was not easy, but each week I found a new source and before long all my shopping was done locally. I found a local farmer who candled his eggs and sold them fresh from his farm gate.
My friends have already unpacked their lunches and are admiring each other’s cooking skills. One of my friends has brought venison wrapped in bacon, and everyone’s mouth-- except mine-- is watering. I admit I am also an animal killer, but I reassure myself that a deer is much cuter than a fish. To no one’s surprise, I rip open my lunchbox and reveal my tuna and corn salad. When I first started bringing my lunch to school, my friends were disgusted by the pervasive odor, and I solemnly vowed to eat it at home instead so that I would not bother anyone with my peculiar eating habits.
