    Flying arrow is a good shop. I would recommend them to anyone. Good guys and very helpful getting you set up. Indoor range and they have Techno hunt to shoot as well. Welcome to the area and good luck.

    Cocktail hour appetizers after a great beach day in RI. Local oysters, venison pepperoni, several cheeses and some marinated mushrooms and olives. A couple of Moscow mules's along with the apps and it was a good day!

    Have to have the pate'! I put the sheet pan in the oven while it pre-heats to get it really hot and that seems to cook the bottom a little bit better than when I don't do that. Give it a try.

    Thanks! Brushing Dijon mustard on the beef filet after it has been browned was a great tip from him. It adds a layer of flavor that can't be pinned down, but is there. The puff pastry is more challenging than the beef, but screwing up the beef is waaaay more expensive!

    Since we were hosting for Mother's day, I asked my wife what she and her mother wanted for dinner. They came up with my Beef Wellington! I have made it a bunch of times for Christmas dinner, but it is still a daunting task. Very stressful, but came out awesome! Side of steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes, but the pictures show the main event!

    Veal cutlets topped with saute'd spinach and garlic, roasted red pepper and fresh mozzerella. Brown butter wine sauce and a side of polenta.

    Ding, ding ding...we have a winner! Yes, tiny place and menu, but we sampled a couple of other items besides the oysters and they were solid. Good cocktails too!

    Got a tip about a place in Millbrook, Ny that does "buck a shuck" oysters at the bar from 4 - 6. Me and the wife went yesterday and it was really nice. They had 4- 5 different types of oysters on the menu, but the special was only for the Wellfleet oysters. I went with the Narragansett lager because I have a summer house in RI, we get oysters all the time in June, July and August and the Narragansett is a great beer to pair with them. I was shocked to see it here in NY. Summer is coming!

    LF, Good eye! It is a 1960's Charles Daly 20 ga. skeet/skeet made in the Miroku, Japan factory. Same place they made Brownings, hence the similar round knob. Having a good pointing dog makes shooting pheasant with a skeet gun easy...most shots are within 20 yds.

    Thanks! I've been lurking on this thread for a while, just never posted. I cook for the family almost every night. Not always game, but freezer usually has deer, pheasant, turkey, duck, fish and a few other game items given to me by friends. I will post more often now that I have started.
