"Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the wildlife you hunt and for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person."
-Fred Bear 1902-1988
The outdoor experience was re-lived at the dinner table Saturday evening. Sharing the harvest with family & friends is another great moment in the succession of events that begins with the planning of a hunting trip well before season opens.
Don mans the grill.
Moose tenderloin from Newfoundland Canada. Marinated in soy sauce & brown sugar and grilled with the bacon wrap. If someone ever offers you one of these, do not, and I mean, DO NOT turn it down!
Ready to serve.
Wild turkey from Michigan. I was so busy preparing this I forgot to take a photo of the finished product. However, it is best described as Greek seasoned turkey with a artichoke & sun-dried tomato reduction sauce & topped with kalamata olives & feta cheese. Don't turn this one down either!
The table is set and the kids are gathering.
"Please pass the moose!"
And if dinner wasn't good enough! There's more...

No photo, but Don's Buffalo dip with squirrel & wild turkey meat was as good as any I've ever eaten.
Looking forward to the 4th annual dinner. However, we've got to head to the woods first to acquire the ingredients. So lets start planning Don!
