The Hood Canal Shrimping Frenzy

This has been on my bucket list of for me for the past decade ever since I heard about it.  I just did not know very much about shrimping and the area.  So when Trevor called and said he had a friend that could…

The Hunting Chef 44 Birthday-Argentina Style Part two

This is the second day of my 44 birthday celebration. The morning began with breakfast for 12 people.  I pull out the World War one Cast Iron skillet that Grover casted me off his original one.  It is one heavy piece of cooking equipment to add to the arsenal…

The Hunting Chef turns Double Quatro Part 1

I recently turned 44, and my wife and friends decided that it was the perfect opportunity to celebrate over a three-day food, drink, and more food bender.  We made a few calls to the butcher, we made a check list of ingredients, watched a…

There is no better tasting salmon in the world better than the Oregon Columbia River Springer Salmon, probably why its 40 bucks a pound right now.  The natural oil content of this fish is so perfect, and the meat so red that it just…

Dove Hunting in Cordoba, Argentina

When we first arrived in the Cordoba airport, the first thing I noticed is how hot it was.  It was like Africa hot.  Our outfitter picked us up in a truck that did not have air-conditioning and the three of us Reed, Dave and…
