ssMaking good use of a whitetail skull!

Recommended Posts

I decided Saturday would be a good day to clean up some old deer skulls I had hanging in the rafters of my turkey shed. I found a robbin had already been making use of one of them so decided to put the project off for awhile. I guess she had a better use for them anyway!

I figured an update was due on the robbins. 2 babies about ready to leave the nest. Amazing that 2 weeks ago the eggs weren't hatched yet.

I found another robbin nest with 5 eggs starting to hatch in a different shed today.

Another photo I recently took of a Killdeer nest alongside Gilmore Creek on my Dad's farm.

I took another peek today at the 2nd nest and the babies doubled in size in the last two days. Only 3 babies left, so the others must not have made it out of the shell. The antler nest babies have already flown the coupe.

The robbins at 6 days old. I decided to get photos every 2 days if I can remember. Cool to see the rapid growth on the little buggers!

The old robbin nest has fallen on hard times with the heavy rains blowing in. The nest was saturated and tipping over when I went to check tonight. Only one robbin baby left at 14 days. I propped the nest up with a post so he could atleast sit flat in it.

    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
