Fight to Survive
Imagine falling 100 feet, breaking nearly every bone in your body, never losing consciousness and being aware of the horrific pain the whole time. This is Craig DeMartino’s story and he joins Jim and Trav this week to detail the events that led up to his death-defying fall and how he recovered afterward. DeMartino is also the host of the new series “Fight to Survive” on Outdoor Channel where other people tell their harrowing survival tales as well. Hear more about it this week!
Remington Camp Cooking
Wild duck can be difficult to prepare, but Jim and Trav have Chef Charlie Palmer in studio to hand out some helpful advice. He’ll talk about the best way to prepare duck legs, why brining is crucial if you want to retain moisture in your meat, and the importance of not over cooking your meat. He’ll also talk about using your duck in unconventional ways. Click here to find more great recipes from Charlie Palmer in Remington Camp Cooking.
John Devney with Delta Waterfowl is delivering good news: duck numbers are great. They are above their long term average despite the loss of habitat in CRP, ponds, native grasslands and more and the increase can be largely attributed to precipitation that wetlands received this spring and summer. Get his full analysis this week!
