Limit of dove and some cuts on the Naches today. I luv Fall!
Ribka: you're killing me. Actually, well done on a cast and blast and I hope the doves were great.
I've been catching a few in my favorite mountain stream, none quit that big.
Boys, I'm about half out of my mind, beautiful crisp mornings and I'm stuck at work until Saturday, shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!!!!!
Gary - I feel your pain. All last week I was twiddling my thumbs at work, and now I'm up to my ears in projects. Are you heading to 'The Spot' on Saturday? I'm heading over on Monday, and come back on Wednesday...avoid the Labor Day crowd. I just hope that some birds are left!
Grilled some poblanos and then cut up mixed them with queso fresco and stuffed into dove breasts and wrapped with bacon.
They were great!
No clue as to what queso fresco is, but I'll guess some kind on cheese stuffing . . . sounds fantastic, however. Bagged 8 birds myself this morning with my 20-gauge (thinking they might be scarce . . . and they were, I "upped the ante" opting for a 20 over my 28). Lunch tomorrow is planned . . . nice Cutt, ribka. Just got done injecting a pork-butt with vinegar/apple juice/garlic-herb marinade, seasoned, and put in the fridge. That'll go on the Loosiana Grill a bit later. Off to clean house & do laundry . . . I'd make someone a fine bride someday if it weren't for my homely countenance, bald head, propensity to wear a 3-day beard growth, expenditures on guns & fly-fishing equipment, and the fact that "vacation/liesure time" is always equal to time in the woods/fields or on the water . . . Born-Again Bachelor, I reckon and destined to stay that way . . .
Queso Fresco: Translates to "fresh cheese". With its crumbly texture and slightly acidic flavor it can be crumbled atop beans, salads or even rice dishes or used to stuff chiles or for quesadillas.. Queso Fresco is probably the most common Mexican cheese found in Mexico as well as the U.S In some regional areas of Mexico the cheese curds are still ground on a metate then hand pressed into round molds.
Can buy it in any store here on the E side. Nice flavor.
Congrats on the birds. I ended using my 12.
On the bright side Jim if Washington passes the same sex marriage law your odds of finding someone will increase by 50%
I miss the bachelor life sometimes but the wife is good most times letting me get out. How long are you cooking the pork butt?
Likely 9-10 hours with this one . . . a guy from North Carolina clued me in on the apple cider vinegar/apple juice trick . . . says he NEVER uses anything else when (true) barbequing. I've misted things with apple juice combos for years, but a friend tried this and said the result was fantastic! I'll look for the cheese . . . thanks!
Re: wedded-bliss . . . call Christine & tell her "No bother." (Judging by her attentiveness & dedication to the east-side, maybe you should suggest she "go for it" . . . likely will happen anyway, but I'm content . . . as for the S/S attraction, I'll never understand it, but folks should be happy. As Dad used to say: "Whatever blows your skirt up . . ."). Had the "love of my life" not traded me in, I'd be very content shopping, snuggling, doing yard-work, making home-improvements, fishing & hunting when possible (retiring 7-years-ago!), and etc. In all actuality, I don't "feel sorry" for you guys . . . I rather envy you. You gents are very fortunate to find & stay with "The One." For me to look for another would be exceedingly "wrong" for both of us . . . the Kids' Mom is "The One" and ever will be . . . more than missing her, I"m thankful for having ever known her . . . we remain and always will be - dear friends. That is a very good thing, Kids are okay, & she's happy.
We live reasonably close, rib . . . we need to get out.
The spot is all yours Andrew.
Gonna have to stay on the home ground, I'll kill a few, maybe.
Quality time with ones self, priceless.
Thanks for reminding JIm
Some photo C & B ( Not the best quality) from yesterday. Elk archery starts next week. Ml deer end of month. Heading to the Methow for deer again. Hopefully can close the deal on an elk. Will take some judo heads for birds if I happen to see any. Did not have the heart to shoot the grouse. Wouldn't fly away
Jim feel free to join me anytime. I have access to some good bird hunting North of you
That pork butt sounds good.
Ribka: I have a two stick rule: if the grouse doesn't flush after two sticks are thrown at it, we leave and find another grouse.
Good on you guys for getting it's more than just meat in the freezer!
Karl, do your sticks come back?
They come back if I'm hunting with my Labrador...
