DINNER THIS WEEK: CROCKPOT VENISON CHILI

  In my opinion, there is nothing better than coming home from a night of hunting and having a crockpot of warm food waiting. In hunting camps everywhere, chili is a staple. There are so many versions of chili, but personally, I don't like beans in mine. I bulk it up with chunky green pepper, onions, bacon bits, diced tomatoes, and green chilies. Sometimes, I also like to add macaroni or medium shell noodles. I usually cook those on the side and keep crackers and Tostitos chips close so people have options! That way you can eat it differently throughout the week so it doesn’t feel like it’s the same meal! I recently made my version of Crockpot Venison Chili and had requests for the recipe, so here it is!   Ingredients:   30 oz.

YOUR ULTIMATE HUNTING PLAYLIST-THE BIG TINE COLLECTION

[caption id="attachment_61622" align="aligncenter" width="1147"] Photo Credit: TJ Unger of The Virtue[/caption]   I wake up to the beeping of my phone alarm. It's the wee hours of the morning. Although I'm tired, I find the motivation to roll out of bed, knowing it's only a matter of hours before the woods will wake up. The house is quiet. I walk into my kitchen and start the coffee and walk back to the bedroom for a set of base layers and socks to change into. Returning to the kitchen, I can smell the aroma of Folger's. I grab a Yeti cup from the cabinet and pour myself some coffee, grab some snacks from the pantry and head out to the garage. Before I leave, I do a once over, making sure I have...

BIG TINE 10-MEET THE BOYS OF BIG TINE

  Despite COVID-19, things didn't seem to miss a beat in Rockville. Business is about as good as it's ever been, if not, better. I'd say it's safe to say everyone at Big Tine is anticipating the upcoming hunting season as much as our customers. I asked Big Tine's own Jackson Ryley, National Sales Manager, Joe Umphries, Director of Sales & Marketing, Jeff Evans, Northern Sales Manager, and John Reichert, Key Accounts Manager, to take a moment out of their hectic schedules to answer ten quick questions in regards to their hunting preferences and favorite Big Tine products. Here's what they had to say.     What is your favorite state to hunt? Jackson: Anything out west! It's hard to narrow it down to one state, but so far I have been to Montana, Colorado,...

FIVE PODCAST EPISODES TO HYPE YOU UP THIS SEASON

  The anticipation is killing me. For over a month, I’ve been ready for Fall. I’m ready for cooler temps, the crisp air, the warmth of sweatshirts, and to once again spend mornings and afternoons in the stand. Although it’s nothing new, hunting conversation has started to rule whenever my Dad and I get together. We strategize, reflect on old stories, dream of the possibilities, watch our favorite hunting shows, and listen to podcasts. Metaphorically, we eat, sleep, and breathe bowhunting Whitetails.   I felt much different this time last year. I was hunting new property that was unfamiliar and I was quite literally scouting the property into the hunting season. Feelings of uncertainty, lack of motivation, and pessimism overwhelmed me most days, but I knew I needed to keep pushing myself if...
