First time hunter turns to bulgogi for her first venison recipe

Jessica Kim cooks up her first deer Jessica Kim from NRA Publications turns her first successful deer hunt into a successful Korean-Style Venison dish ...

Korean-Style Venison
Bulgogi is a marinated, sliced beef that is grilled over fire, or a stove top frying pan. And now you can try it with venison. Check out this Korean-style recipe from Jessica Kim.

In December 2014, I experienced my first whitetail deer hunt on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It was the final day of shotgun season, and the sun was about to disappear. Just as the last bit of daylight gave way to night, a group of deer appeared and I was able to harvest my first doe. Our guide at Schrader’s Outdoors, David Crist, took the doe to Tuckahoe River Deer Processing.

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources - Maryland’s New Winter Turkey Season to Open Statewide

Strutting by Lori R. Bramble Annapolis, Maryland - This month kicks off Maryland’s first-ever winter turkey hunting season, taking place January 22-24 statewide. The new season will provide hunters with increased turkey hunting opportunities while minimizing conflicts with other seasons.

The bag limit is one turkey, of either sex. Hunters who took a turkey in the 2014 fall season may not harvest any in the winter. Hunting hours are one half-hour before sunrise to one half-hour after sunset. Weapons are limited to shotguns loaded with #4 shot or smaller. Crossbows or vertical bows are also legal. Harvest reporting requirements are the same as other turkey seasons. Hunters may check-in their harvests via phone, internet or mobile device with the AccessDNR app.

From the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources - West Virginia Hunters Harvest 2,385 Black Bears in 2014

Photo Courtesy of the West Virginia Department of Commerce.  Applications for the limited bear firearms season in 17 counties must be submitted by Aug. 18, 2014. South Charleston, West Virginia – West Virginia hunters harvested 2,385 black bears during the combined 2014 archery and firearms seasons, according to Colin Carpenter, Black Bear Project Leader for the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources. The preliminary harvest data for the combined 2014 seasons were 11 percent lower than the 2013 harvest of 2,692 bears. The black bear harvest of 2014 marks the fifth time in five years that the harvest has topped 2,000 and is tied for the third highest harvest on record.

"Mast conditions in 2014 helped some hunters and hurt others," said Carpenter. "The 2014 Mast Survey and Hunting Outlook documented vastly improved oak mast conditions over 2013. Historically, abundant oak mast has led to a decreased archery harvest and an increased December firearms harvest, and that scenario held true in 2014... more on West Virginia's 2014 black bear hunting season ...

Outdoor Writer says Tactical Hunting: Sir, Yes Sir!

Smith & Wesson tactical rifle

Outdoor shaman Kevin Reese returns in a fury in his call for tactical rifle hunting ...
Corsicana, Texas - My pop once told me I might fit into my dress blues if I used bungee cords; the truth hurts. Looking at me it’s hard to believe I spent eight years in the Marines. In all honestly, I’m not that bad off… I’m just not that well off; I could stand a few months of nonstop treadmill work. Beyond reminiscing about my life as a Marine and wishing I still looked the part, I miss many aspects of active duty life – chief among them being camaraderie and my trusty M-16 A2 Service Rifle.

I wasn’t a huge promoter of 62-grain 5.56 Ball NATO ammunition but it seemed to be sufficient. I qualified every year as a rifle expert and later in my second enlistment as a pistol sharpshooter, qualifying with an original Colt 1911 that had been in Marine Corps service for over 75 years and was still a sweet shooter.

From the Delaware Division of Fish & Wildlife - DNREC Fish & Wildlife encourages successful deer hunters to donate venison to Sportsmen Against Hunger

Delaware Sportsmen Against Hunger Dover, Delaware – With Delaware’s archery deer season continuing until Jan. 31 plus three more weeks of various firearm deer seasons coming up in January, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife reminds hunters that the state’s Sportsmen Against Hunger Program gratefully accepts donated venison for processing and distribution to participating charitable groups who provide meals for hungry Delawareans.

“So far, our donations to Sportsmen Against Hunger are down for this season,” said Kent County Regional Wildlife Manager Bill Jones. “We would like to encourage successful hunters who have more venison than they can use to support this program and help those in need. With the January deer seasons still ahead, we have hopes of Delaware hunters matching – or maybe even surpassing – last year’s total of more than 21,000 pounds of donated venison.”

The 2014-2015 Delaware deer hunting seasons will conclude with seasons open on the following dates in January:

From the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism - Don't miss out on late-season waterfowl hunts

DON’T MISS OUT ON LATE-SEASON WATERFOWL HUNTS Don’t store your waders; late season hunts can still prove fruitful

PRATT — Most hunting seasons, including those for ducks, deer and upland birds, will come to a close soon, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stow away your gear yet. Kansas has several seasons to keep you hunting through January, and goose hunting opportunities that run through early spring.

Depending on weather and snow cover conditions, numbers of geese can steadily build in late January and early February around Kansas reservoirs and wetlands. Consider hunting the Canada and light goose seasons, Nov. 12, 2014-Feb. 15, 2015, and the white-fronted goose season, Jan. 17-Feb. 15, 2015, during this time.
