    Canning game meat

    Many online indicate a much longer life. I have used jelly that's several years old and it is still great.

    How long can you keep canned meat? That's simply a USDA guideline and has been for a long time: the shelf life of your canned food is one year….. We always adhere to current USDA guidelines, and that is, once you preserve your food you have one year to eat that to get the best nutrient value out of that.”

    Hot pack is a bit more work but the end result is more attractive. Not sure about the flavor but we will find out soon.

    Bartlett Ramps open?

    Launch at main ramp is good. Ramp in the water. We caught Bass and Crappie upriver from yellow cliffs. Caught Bass the next day on the north side across from Rattlesnake cove. All lures, all in 3 to 15 feet of water. Good luck!

    Canning game meat

    I decided a while back to try canning meat. We were fortunate enough put elk in the freezer and have plenty cubed and ready to go. I bought a Presto Pressure Canner (a must to safely can meat and low acid food). Using tried and true recipes as my base, we rolled up our sleeves and got busy. We started with pinto beans and also raw pack elk cubes yesterday. Came out great. Plain it's a little salty but in a dish it should be great. The meat pressure cooks in the jar so it comes out fall apart tender. We are working on elk stew right now. This is a little different as the meat is browned 1st and broth covers everything from the get go. It is intimidating at first due to all the fear mongering online. But at the end of the day we felt comfortable. Be careful, follow directions, and only use university, cooperative extension, or other lab tested recipes. I will add pictures when the jars come out of the canner.
  8. No chat about quail? We found it tough this weekend. Wondering what others are seeing?

    This isn't about me. Many comments here insinuating that crossbow hunters are cheating. Just fat or hip hurts. It's tacky to make that assumption and generalization. I find that sad from this group. I am correctly using an exemption carved out for people with a certified disability that prevents them from participating in traditional archery. Until something changes, I am going to hunt as I see fit. I don't need permission from the interweb. I already have the law on my side. I am ok with Crossbow tags, don't see the need but if it makes grumpy old farts feel better than ok. Still going to be only so many tags.

    Yup. Sad to see so many grumpy old farts hating on fellow hunters.

  12. Biggest problem I see is that many unit boundaries are roads and highways. Considered it before as only glassing spot where I chose to hunt was in an adjacent unit. The boundary was indeed a road. Planned to spot from adjacent unit then stalk into correct unit but ultimately wasn't sure that was legal. I felt funny about doing it so didn't.

    He is ignorant (lacking knowledge or comprehension) in that he does not have specific knowledge of the other hunters physical condition or health. An opinion is not the same as making assumptions and judgments. There were subsequent ignorant comments regarding disability. I can lift an ice chest, I can run after game. I can do most things and don't "look" disabled. I have a very specific problem with impinged nerves in my neck. Pushing and pulling are main the issue for me and cause aggravation of the nerves. This causes weakness and numbness in my hands. I can draw a bow. (I shouldn't) I cannot repeatedly draw a bow therefore I cannot practice. I guess I could only draw a bow on hunts and fling arrows unethically. You would know none of this seeing me put an ice chest in my truck. Therefore making any assumption regarding my crossbow permit is ignorant. We have these same petty arguments about guns. Why do you need a magnum and shoot a deer at 700 yards, blah, blah, blah.... Who cares. I don't like your pistol, it meets the legal definition but not my personal definition blah, blah, blah.... who cares. It's this infighting that dooms hunters. The anti's know exactly how to divide and conquer...

    Crossguns during an archery hunt should only be allowed once due to an injury or disability. This is already the case. You need a medical form filled out by a Dr. and a crossbow permit approved by AZGFD. If you only want to hunt during an archery season then lower the poundage down to the lowest legal poundage or learn to shoot with with opposite hand. My two cents. Neck and back injuries can cause bilateral weakness ( both arms or hands ). There is a long list of diseases and disorders that can cause problems with both arms and/or hands. Ignorant comments regarding disabilities have no place here.
