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.

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.

The Origins of a Korean Huntress
A Korean-American woman steps outside her comfort zone—and her cultural heritage—to experience an American tradition.

As a senior graphic designer for Shooting Sports USA, I've been able to hear my colleagues tell stories from hunts all around the world. As time went by, I realized that I wanted to experience a hunt as well. One thing I noticed in all of these articles, (besides the beautiful hunt photos!) is that the  hunters did not look quite like me. I haven’t seen many Asian women in the hunting culture. Growing up as a Korean American woman, my family believed that education was the key step to achieving the American dream. Studying, playing the violin, and art were my lifestyle, while hunting was a foreign idea.

From Beretta - Beretta Releases Limited Editions of Iconic 90 Series Pistols

92FS Brigadier Inox Accokeek, Maryland The Beretta M9 and 92FS are among the most widely recognized firearms in history, and the most notable models from Beretta’s iconic 90 Series. The Beretta 92 was submitted in 1980 for the XM9 program conducted by the U.S. Military to seek out a replacement for the M1911.

During a five-year testing period these pistols were subjected to the most extensive military pistol test program ever conducted. In 1985, the Beretta M9 – a model from the legendary 90 Series, was adopted as the official sidearm of the U.S. Military and has served there ever since. 

Beretta has produced many variants of the 90 Series since then and today is very excited to announce it will manufacture a limited number of selected models from this iconic series.
