Keep it Public, When it's Gone it's Gone

No matter how you look at it, the fight to ultimately privatize public lands is growing, a fight is coming, and in the balance over a hundred years of conservation, history, heritage, and dreams of wild things in wild places lie in the balance. At times it seems futile. Once it’s gone it’s gone.

Pronghorn Oven Roast

For a family that has eaten more wild game from a wide variety of animals than the average household it is a unanimous favorite. If whitetail and elk are the beef of the forest then pronghorn are the veal of the prairie.

Whole30 Compliant Wild Pulled Pork Tacos

Texans take their tacos seriously, especially those who grew up in the southern half of the state. We even have a tendency to put things like boudin or brisket in a tortilla. Breakfast tacos made with spicy venison sausage is a personal favorite of the Hargrove household.

He's A Good Boy

All at once I came upon him, facing away from me, growling, snarling, and lunging towards the bayed stag. His side was stained with blood from being bedded and he was backed into a small oak patch. As soon as the stag saw me he lunged over king knocking him sideways and ran past me within arms reach.

Venison Carpaccio

The eye of round will almost match the tenderloin in size and shape. It is often referred to as the fool's tenderloin or the poor man's tenderloin due to its appearance and its tender qualities. This cut works well for carpaccio due to its size and tenderness.

Poor Man's Sheep

I love the animals I hunt, more than most would even understand.  I held his horns, feeling their rings and cracks. I stroked his mane, feeling his scrapes and scars.His skull was cracked at the base of his horn; it was fresh and red with blood, perhaps an injury from their recent rut. He was warrior and had fought well I am sure.

Black and Blue Skillet Backstrap

STOP CHICKEN FRYING YOUR BACKSTRAPS! I know it’s delicious; it’s a tradition of sorts. You are Texan. I get it. I grew up doing it. But I promise you filleting, tenderizing, and pounding paper thin cutlets of already prime and tender backstrap is not its best application.
