Ling cod fishing is a lot of fun – a lot of action. I had a huge dog fish [small shark] coming after one of the ling on my line. Had to have been a big dog fish to want a piece of a 10 lb ling cod. I’ve been surprised how many ling are in that size range – … Read More

Props to my dad

KevinFishingLeave a Comment

I don’t give my dad props very often. So here we go. I was looking at this picture from a couple nights ago thinking: “I think nothing of doing my own butchering of fish, fowl, and game. If if were not for my dad, I would not have these skills.” Not a big deal if you’ve been exposed to it, … Read More

Chicken? Looks like it. Kinda. It’s actually an intact sac of Perch roe. I remember seeing it cooked on a rare occasion or two back when I was a kid, but have never touched the stuff in my kitchen. I had a quick conversation about the copious amounts of roe in the fish my dad’s been catching with Pam’s grandmother. … Read More

Divergent blog day, here I come. This is a picture I took on a bridge in Nyhavn, Copenhagen, Denmark. In June. I figured blogs are more interesting with pictures.

It was a really memorable party. 7 courses, lots of drinking, and lots of being merry. It far exceeded expectations. So tonight, we’re hosting the follow up to this event. I … Read More

I just got back today from the last big game hunt of the year. We spent a couple days hunting elk, and a day hunting boar. I saw wild boar track for the first time and saw how they fed under 2-3 feet of snow. Interesting stuff. I also saw three bull elk, a cow elk, a bunch of cow … Read More

Last hunt of the year

KevinHuntingLeave a Comment

I leave first thing tomorrow morning on an elk hunt. It’s a strange time to go hunting. We may be butchering days before Christmas. That’d be a first. I have an antlerless elk tag, and am hoping to have a chance at a calf. We’ll see. There’s so much snow now that the only way to hunt is by snowmobile, … Read More
