Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Apr 4, 2015

A cornerstone of The Sportsman Channel, Scott Leysath has cooked, sliced, diced, and served every type of game you can imagine. Known better as The Sporting Chef, we sat down with Scott to cover some very interesting culinary topics that will point blank make your game dishes better. 

Also on the menu: The #EatWhatYouKill or #FieldtoFork Movement, or whatever you want to call it these days, otherwise know as hunting-killing-eating free range organic meats. This concept is gaining steam as evidenced by the likes of mega-famed podcaster Joe Rogan posing on the cover of Petersen's Hunting Magazine while carrying a hindquarter of a recently killed moose. Which reminds me, there seem to be a bunch of outdoor podcasters making magazine covers lately.

From corned venison, to camp smokers, to over cooking game, to venison jerky, to avoiding "gamey" flavors- Scott shares decades of culinary knowledge with us on this show!

A great episode to tune into if you are eating meat from your hunts!
