I grind my meat up into burger and I put together batches of 5 lbs. Cabelas has Variety pack of seasoning's I would recomend. I use a jerky gun that is metal worth their weight in gold and I put them jerky on my trays for the dehydrator. Works out great. I would suggest getting a jerky gun and try their flavor's out from cabelas. You can do the chunks of meat but it always seems to be too variable for me.

Frying pan, 1/4 stick of butter, green bell pepper sliced, onion sliced, lawreys, garlic salt, thin sliced venison. Cook it hot for a few minutes and that stuff is the best.

Also can take that same mixture and put it in a taco shell, some shredded cheese and sour cream.

YUM, red neck fajita.

As for jerky, I like to do what code man does.

Another trick is instead of buying the jerky seasoning another thing you can do is buy the jerky cure in bulk and use your favorite steak seasonings along with it. Trying out your own techniques will work good.

Instead of using ground venison for our jerky, we take the roast and run them through either a deli slicer or use a serrated bread knife to get a nice consistent thickness (having the roast semi-frozen can help quite a bit).

Then we cure the sliced meat with the Cabela's seasoning and then run it through the dehydrator.

One tip: when the meat comes out of the dehydrator, lay it on paper towels to cool off before you package it. If you don't, the warm meat will cause the air moisture to condense in the package and essentially re-hydrate your jerky and it ends up ruining it.

Hope that helps.

im with eye.

I take all 6 roast that are in the deer, and slice them all. Then i take it all and put it in a tub, put the seasoning on it, and let it sit for a few days then smoke.

Good stuff.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
