Chili Cook-off Bonanza

 Chili Cook-off!

Dutch Oven chili cook off Everyone loves a good Dutch oven filled to its brim with great tasting chili.

Our posting have been slow this summer because we have been traveling to places trying out

these great recipes.


Dutch oven recipes that come from years past, from frontier days are best when shared

by friends around a burning campfire.

It just does not get any better than that feeling of being away from work with

nothing to worry about except when you should throw another log on your campfire.

Cooking styles vary from one camp-site to another, but one thing stays the same when

a chili cook-off is going on.Beef Chili


Everyone has their secret.  From timing of when you cook your meat to how much spice to add.

You can ask anything you want but do not expect an answer that is to specific on how its all done.

Its a very friendly event no matter what part of the country your having your chili cook-off.


Best benefit of all is all is meeting new friends.

Everyone is here for that same reason that you are, to have a great time.

One great event is in Riverside NH

Chili cookers from all across Southeastern states gathered in Riverside Saturday for a chili cook-off that could send some of our best to the World Chili Cook-off Championship.

Deer Decoys

So many times we have seen deer come running in to our stand after blowing a grunt call or bleat, just out of bow range & nervous as can be. If there was a decoy to take their attention away from us for that important second it would take to draw your bow. When we blow on a grunt call, a deer is looking for what made that sound.  There are several concepts to deer decoys one being that it is very helpful to your success as a Hunter!

Deer DecoyYou can try placing your deer decoy close or in an open area where it can be seen with ease. Try these ideas from tricks with deer decoys to help your hunting success.

While searching for new deer decoys for this fall I came across one great Idea!

What a great concept to place this lifelike hunting buddy in your stand to look like you while you are gone. Deer get use to you being there!
