  1. yes, that recipe looks good. Love the risotto accompaniment.

    Cool. I did a test run in the back yard, was easy enough to shimmy up and down. I got a doe in my back woods a couple weeks ago, but have never had luck on public land. Do you hunt in Moreau Lake?
  3. Standard osso bucco recipe, but with veal shank instead. - 2 shanks, cut crosswise to make 4 (roughly) equal pieces. - Salt/pepper, sear in heavy pot (we used instant pot on "sautee" setting, but a dutch oven would also be good) - Remove shanks, add diced carrots, onion celery (1 med onion, and equal parts of carrots and celery to match), cook until colors brighten, about 3 mins; add a tomato or tomato paste if you want - Add 1 cup red wine, 1 cup beef stock (or 1 cup water, and bouillon or base), herbs if you want - like a bay leaf, thyme, rosemary - Pressure cook for 45 min, or cover in dutch oven until soft - maybe 2 hrs - Remove shanks, set aside, boil remaining liquid until reduced by half - add shanks back to pan, stir in 3 tbsp gremolata (grated lemon zest, minced *fresh* parsley, minced fresh garlic) serve over mashed potatoes or other starch. All the connective tissue softened up, delicious flavor. Was even able to dig a little marrow out of the exposed bone. YUM!

    It’s a long uphill climb to carry a backpack and climbing stand, but agree that a stand is needed. Might do that this weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Cut roughly the size of beef tenderloins, soaked in apple cider, wrapped w/ bacon . Seared outside including bacon, finished to rare-midrare in 400 deg oven. Diced onions into pan, port wine reduction, and it was delicious! Also cleaned out the heart, sliced lengthwise, removed all connective tissue, seared in pan w/ olive oil & s/p. Served rare. First white tail heart - delicious! Will take pictures next time.

    I’ve been checking out Moreau on a couple day trips. Leaves can be very crunchy, and nice weather brings lots of people. Spooked a couple deer - they saw me before I saw them. Anyone have experience here? I’m finding it pretty tricky. Still or tree? Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. First whitetail, bow from stand, double lung. Saw this doe on my trail cam several times. She walked under me last week, but it wasn’t light enough to see the sight or take a shot. Today was a perfect stroll under the stand [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This would be my first. I have a bow permit and DMP, so I’ll harvest the first one past my stand [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Found this guy on my trail cam a couple times, unfortunately only around midnight. Any ideas how to coax him around during daytime? (Still working tp get my first deer...) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. My problem is I’m a single father and can’t get out more than a day or two each year. It is what it is, but i feel like I need an option with much better chances. Any thoughts? I know there are these hunting ranches and reservation hunts, but they are expensive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I feel your pain. Also a new hunter, shot a wild boar in TX, but haven’t gotten a deer yet in 2+ yrs of hunting in NY. Startled a doe last year just as I was aiming. Need to learn the ropes from someone with experience. I’m close to hiring a guide... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
