OS 1137: Pheasants, Arrowheads, Knives…and SPAM?

Capt. Kevin and Jeff held down the fort this week, as Kirk was out of the studio this week doing some OSR – his annual South Dakota pheasant hunting trip.  Kirk called in and shared all kinds of stories about the hunt, as well as the travel getting there.  This gave the guys an opportunity to talk about bird hunting, which always brings out some fun stories.

However, thanks to Chef Gordon’s gift of breakfast – a delicacy he calls the “McShulty,” consisting of fried SPAM and Palmetto Cheese wrapped in a crescent roll – we got going on SPAM, vienna sausage, potted meat, and more.  Yum.

As far as the fishing goes, things have really taken a turn.  The mullet run is over, the water’s tannic, but depending on where you go, when you go, and what you’re looking for, things are still decent.

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: The guys never leave home without a great knife like this one. This, the Kershaw Link, model 1776, is their drop-point blade model. The 420HC stainless blade steel has higher amounts of carbon and chromium to boost hardenability and corrosion resistance. It is an excellent everyday steel: tough, corrosion resistant, easy to sharpen and takes a good edge. A stonewashed finish gives the blade surface a desirable roughened or scuffed look, and helps hide scratches and fingerprints. The handle is matte-finished glass-filled nylon for lightweight strength. The sculpted lines and texture of the handle provide for a comfortable and secure grip.

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week: Kyle Waltz found #3 While walking to and from deer stands. Look in ditches, roadways and sandy spots for arrowheads.

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. cooking tip of the week: Start your venison chili with this: Bush’s ChiliMagic. It really is pure magic…just ask Jeff!
