Duck and Sausage Gumbo

For duck hunting to be good around here — and good is a relative term where I live — the weather needs to be cold. That works out well, though, since one of my favorite recipes for just about any type of duck is a big pot of gumbo, and...


Battling the Post-Duck-Season Blues at Honey Brake

Sunrises anywhere promise great things. But when that brilliant orange orb lights up 250-plus decoys on a sprawling Louisiana marsh, the expectations are especially sweet. “One minute,” David Cahill said, readying his guide charges for the day. “Go ahead and load up.” And with that, our January delta adventure began...


Venison Albondigas Soup

When it comes to comfort food, you can’t beat a big bowl of Albondigas (Mexican meatball) Soup. We make ours with venison and lots of vegetables. To help the venison meatballs hold together, we use uncooked rice and a beaten egg as a binder. Make the meatballs first, then refrigerate...


Deer Hunting with the .350 Legend

Attack Squirrel Terrorizes Texas Neighborhood

The idea of an "attack squirrel" is kind of funny. But two women bitten by the squirrel aren't laughing. Residents in Houston's Bridgeland Shores neighborhood said the squirrel started off friendly and playful but has now become aggressive and mean. "We usually don't go outside in the daytime because he...

Plan B Options to Save Your Duck and Goose Hunts

Editor's note: This blog originally appeared on May 18, 2017, on Realtree.com. Every duck and goose hunter remembers with pride those great mornings when a well-executed plan came together. Of course, we also recall with regret those equally memorable days when our plans crashed and burned. It happens. But even...


Candied Bourbon Chestnuts in Syrup

There was a time when the forests of the Eastern U.S. were full of chestnut trees. Wildlife loved them, as did the people who lived around them and valued them for both food and lumber. Then the chestnut blight hit in 1904 when fungus-infected nursery stock was brought in from...


Mark Zuckerberg Still Hunts, but Has Loosened Meat Eating Rules

In 2011, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg challenged himself to only eat meat that he killed. In fact, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey claimed in a Rolling Stone interview that Zuckerberg once served him a goat that he'd killed himself. Zuckerberg has since stepped away from that challenge, but says he still...


When to Hire a Hunting Land Consultant
