All hunters head to the great outdoors with the goal of bringing home the game animal they pursue. So much time and money is invested in the gear and tactics used to harvest that game, however many times those same hunters are unprepared for how to handle and treat the game they just harvested. Scott Leysath, The Sporting Chef on Sportsman Channel says, “If you’ve had deer, elk or antelope that didn’t taste good, there’s an excellent chance that it started in the field and somebody didn’t handle it properly.” Every hunter should learn the basics of proper field care and be able to field dress and clean their game and get it cooling as quickly as possible. Scott says that while many people like to quarter or break up their animals right away, he prefers to hang them whole and dry age them and he’ll explain why. Scott will also explain why the proper internal temperature can make or break a dish and if you aren’t already, why you should be cooking your wild game rare to medium rare. Furthermore, if you are taking advantage of dove season, tune in as Scott hands out a recipe for Spicy Dove on Tomato in lieu of the traditional dove poppers. Finally, coming October 15-22, to both Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel, will be #DeerWeek, seven nights of deer hunting only programming. Watch Scott Leysath on “Dead Meat” during this week of programming.
The 2018 Wolverine X4 from Yamaha is the brand new, just released, bad boy of the backwoods. Debuting just a week ago, the Wolverine X4 is an all-new, and incredibly off road capable, 4 passenger Side-by-Side. Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV and Side-by-Side Group Marketing Manager, joins Jim and Trav to give us a first look at the Wolverine X4 and all of its features. Built new from the ground up, a powerful 847cc parallel-twin engine powers the X4, and it’s designed to reduce engine noise and vibration allowing all occupants to be able to carry on conversations easily while riding. While it is a 4 passenger Side-by-Side, it’s still very compact with an overall wheelbase of just 122 inches and a turn radius that is second to none. The Wolverine X4 has a self-leveling rear suspension that automatically adjusts for changes in vehicle and passenger loads. Its upswept underbody design and wide arc A-arms, give it the ability to take on challenging terrain with comfort and ease. Find out more about its Speed Management System, a Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle, towing capacity, and cabin configurations, that are accommodating for passengers, cargo or both. Stay tuned as Steve Nessl talks about all of these fantastic features, and more, that make the 2018 Wolverine X4 a Side-by-Side that you definitely need to get to a dealer to see and experience for yourself.
Happening this weekend is the 77th Annual One Shot Antelope Hunt in Lander, Wyoming. Joe Kenney, owner and general manager of KOVE in Lander, Wyoming, joins Jim and Trav to talk about this world class competitive hunt. Pitting eight three man teams against each other, hunters of each team are tasked with harvesting a pronghorn antelope using only one shot. The event, which started in 1940, is held each September at the base of the Wind River Mountains in the beautiful community of Lander, Wyoming. Joe will give us a brief history of the competition, its traditions, focus on conservation and comradery. He’ll also discuss Water for Wildlife, a foundation that stemmed from the One Shot competition and focuses on game preservation, management and conservation by establishing water sources in western states.
