  1. 12-15-17 crappie report

    Congrats on a nice cooler of crappie!
  2. Air Rifle

    BH we never had those types of battles. I did build a lot of warship and airplane models when I was a teen. After about 6 to 9 months I would get bored or want to build a new one, but didn't have a place to display the new one. So I would load up an old model with sterno or firecrackers. If it was a boat, I would light it up and drift the boat out onto a local pond and watch it burn and then get blown to bits. Airplanes would get a similar treatment, except that I would string them up and "fly" them before they would blow up. We also would fill nylon stocking eggs with sterno and CO2 cartridges. They would burn, blow up, and put out the fire with the CO2. A lot of fun at the time, but likely an environmental hazard.
  3. Best way keep hands warm?

    I use the adhesive chemical toe warmers and place them on my hips above my femoral arteries. That keeps my legs warm. Since I do most of my winter fishing while wading, I do stay heated while fishing. I typically don't wear gloves, but a couple of hand warmers in my coat pockets are used just to get them warmed up again.
  4. Personal Best Spot

    Congrats Mitch on a personal best spotted bass! That is a pig!
  5. Has this weather driven the eyes deep?

    Dan- it's still a walleye even though it's not that much bigger than your spoon.
  6. Chocolate Scented Orchid

    It may look like bacon, but does not smell like it. Don't think that I could stand a bacon scented orchid. I would be drooling on myself all of the time while it was blooming. Fortunately this is a flower that gives off it's scent in the evening/night. Might get overpowering if it gave of its scent all day and night.
  7. Chocolate Scented Orchid

    I am sitting watching television and periodically get wafts of the perfume from one of our blooming orchids. This one is a chocolate scented Oncidium or a dancing lady variety orchid. Not a commonly found orchid here in Missouri, but I picked this one up locally about a year ago. The scent is reminiscent of chocolate.
  8. What's Cooking?

    Keeping up with the wild game theme, I made a modified version of beef and broccoli using venison. I thinly sliced some venison steak meat, added It to a bowl along with about two tablespoons of sambal chili sauce, two tablespoons of cornstarch, some powdered ginger, and enough soy sauce to wet and coat the meat. I let the meat sit while I sliced the broccoli, yellow onion, and about a cup and a half of sugar peas (halved) and minced garlic. I mixed two tablespoons of cornstarch with two thirds cup of soy sauce and a third cup of beef stock. I cooked the meat over high heat. Once browned, I removed the meat to a plate and added a bit more oil and the remaining goose fat from the fridge then began cooking the broccoli. Once the broccoli cooked a bit, I added the peas, followed by the onion and minced garlic. Once the onions were translucent, I added the meat back in to the pan. Added ground pepper and a little Chinese five spice then the soy sauce/stock/corn starch mixture. Cooked everything until the sauce thickened and served with white rice cooked with a little beef stock and some powdered ginger.
  9. Meramec giant

  10. What's Cooking?

    Now I got a preview of this meal but kept thinking that the Landry boys had visited Billetheadville and brought some gator and crawfish for the sauce piquante☺! Sounds like venison worked as well. Still would love to hear "Choot em Marty! Choot em!"
  11. Friday fishing

    Looks like a great trip! Congrats on catching some nice stripers!
  12. Stalking wild trout ...

    I know a spot or two that I had a trout surprise. Like you, I think about and want find out how they got there. Glad to hear that there are more such places where there are naturalized trout. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to find one or wo more. They tend to be fiesty fighters ☺ and that makes finding them special.
  13. Let someone know where you'll be.

    I will let my Betterhalf know where I will be hunting or fishing "most" of the time. On hunting trips it is all the time and only about 80% of my fishing trips. As Wrench mentioned, my Betterhalf may have never been fishing these spots with me. Since I wade fish most of the time, if they know the access should be able to find me with two people.
  14. Found a few crappie

    Congrats Dan! Glad that you were getting fish in the boat! Also great that you got to spend time with a good friend.
  15. Air Rifle
