My Most Bizarre Incident in the Woods, Ever

Posted by on in Hunting

My last blog described an elk hunt with General Chuck Yeager where he gave me his rifle. In order to keep the blog from becoming too lengthy, I omitted a profound incident that deserves to be told.

CHUCK YEAGER AND THE CHRISTMAS PRESENT

Posted by on in Public Blog

I'm no stranger to elk hunts. I began hunting elk back in my 20's, and my interest and passion for hunting them grew to the point where they became my primary focus. I hunted elk everywhere I could, during blistering hot early fall days to bitterly cold subzero days. Because I was a full-time staff writer for Outdoor Life magazine, time was not an issue. I hunted nonstop, continually taking up the challenge in different states and different mountain ranges. I couldn't hunt elk enough.

ALASKA WOMAN RECEIVED PROIS AWARD

Posted by on in Public Blog

A couple years ago, I fished for halibut in Alaska with Christina Holden, and our friends Louis and Ruth Cusack. Christina and I were taking a quick break from the annual black bear hunt we put on for military veterans. Both of us serve on the Alaska Healing Hearts board of directors. On that fishing trip, we met Christine Cunningham and her good friend, Steve Meyer. Fishing was good, the ocean was rock and roll friendly, and we carried delightfully heavy coolers of fish from the boat to our vehicles.

Persistence Pays Off

Posted by on in Public Blog

There are still some hunters today who believe that does should never be targeted, no matter the circumstances. That attitude is centered on the notion that the more does, the more breeding animals, and therefore more bucks later on. That was the prevailing attitude when I was a teenager. It was considered a cardinal sin to shoot a doe. Biologists held town meetings to explain new wildlife management practices.

Announcing Next Cookbook: Jim Zumbo's 30 Favorite Recipes for Fish, Venison and Other Wild Game

Posted by on in Public Blog

Many of you know that I like to cook. No, actually I love to cook. And some of you know that I published Amazing Venison Recipes, a collection of more than 200 venison recipes. That book was published exactly 20 years ago and sold upwards of 100,000 copies. During that time, many folks asked me what my all-time favorite venison recipes are. Many also asked if I was going to do another cookbook on fish, upland game, small game, etc.

The Ultimate Elk Hunt

Posted by on in Hunting

Many folks believe that elk hunting is the toughest of all hunts in North America, when considering the more common species. To be sure, mountain goat and sheep hunting can be grueling, but elk, in my opinion, get the gold medal for being most challenging, day in and day out.

Sitka Blacktail - Best Venison Ever

Posted by on in Hunting

A few years ago, while having dinner with famous bowhunter Chuck Adams, who is arguably the best known bowhunter alive today, we chatted about venison. We compared notes from the animals we'd taken on many continents. In this case, venison is defined as the flesh of a hooved wild animal, which would include all the African antelope, moose, caribou, deer, elk, etc. I asked Chuck what his all-time favorite venison is, and I was astounded when he said Sitka blacktail deer. Amazing, because that's my all-time favorite as well.

When Does WINTER officially Start?

Posted by on in Public Blog

NOW I know why I was so compelled to cut and split all this firewood last spring, summer, and fall. This image shows less than half of my wood supply. This is one of the earliest, heaviest snowfalls we've ever had. Twenty inches. Who knows what's yet to come? Winter hasn't officially started yet.

They can share in the bounty too, and you don't have to feed them edible meat. Here's a nifty trick to not only get rid of the inedible scraps, but make your dogs happy little campers as well. It's healthy for them too, providing plenty of necessary fat and protein.

Jim Zumbo is BLOGGING Again!

Posted by on in Public Blog

I'm sitting here outside in my man-cave, next to my wood pile, which is my favorite spot to hang out, weather allowing of course. Blogging isn't new to me. I quit writing them in 2006 while working for Outdoor Life Magazine, when my final blog caused a bit of a stir.
