S1-E03: Stab Em’ and Eat Em’
S1-E03: Stab Em’ and Eat Em’
Kicking off the tour part of the Fur Hat Ice Tour, Janis Putelis travels to Whitefish Lake, Minnesota and meets up with local wild foods expert Mark Norquist who runs the Modern Carnivore website. In this episode, Mark introduces Janis to dark house ice spearing, a hallowed tradition for winter food gathering in the upper Midwest. Mark and Janis cut a large hole in the ice and then set up a darkened shelter over top of it. They sit at the edge of the hole, holding long handled tridents and waiting for fish to swim through. When the fish do appear, Janis has to be quick and steady of hand if he wants to successfully spear the lake whitefish and northern pike that they’re targeting. Finally, chef Lukas Leaf joins them and cooks whitefish cakes out on the ice. Presented by Eskimo Fishing Gear https://geteskimo.com/

S2-E02: Mark Kenyon and Doug Duren Get to Work on the Farm
In this episode, Mark Kenyon is joined by everyone’s favorite guitar-picking Wisconsinite Doug Duren to revisit the plan he proposed during his 2019 visit to the farm. Doug and Mark have a goal to get 55 trees in the ground and double the acreage of food plots on the property. Along the way they’ll show new hunter Dan Jajo the ropes and hope that he can earn a chance to come back and hunt later in the year. With just a few days to get all of the work done, things really need to go according to plan. Of course, they don’t. Will the guys be able to finish off these projects despite broken equipment and oppressive August heat? Presented by onX Hunt.

S1-E02: Backcountry Burbot
S1-E02: Backcountry Burbot
To pivot off of the ease and accessibility we featured in Episode 1, Episode 2 goes the opposite direction and shows Cal and Miles embarking on a deep backcountry winter expedition requiring tracked Can-Ams and thousands of pounds of gear. Ice fishing can be simple and local, but it can also be adventurous. Cal and Miles explore a high mountain Montana lake that Cal’s been wanting to fish for two decades, in the hopes of catching a large, or at least respectable, burbot. Cal and Miles discover less than optimal conditions, but work through and figure it out. They manage to catch a variety of fish, cook some delicious burbot, and try out fried burbot liver.

S2-E01: Steven Rinella and Mark Kenyon Discuss the Transformation of the Property
S2-E01: Steven Rinella and Mark Kenyon Discuss the Transformation of the Property
Last year, we bought a 64-acre farm in Michigan. The goal was to transform this small chunk of land into a hunting and wildlife paradise. Mark Kenyon’s first season as deer hunter turned land manager was full of half-done projects and failed additions. Other than arrowing a mature buck he called “The Wide Eight,” last season was about getting to know the farm. This year will be all about change. It’s August and Mark is back to check on the progress of some crucial projects. He battled a bunch of pissed off bees, COVID lockdowns, and failed food plots all Spring. Will any of these so-called improvements turn the Back 40 around? Tune in to find out. Presented by onX Hunt. Use code Back40 for 20% off new Hunt App memberships at https://onxmaps.com/meateater

How To Shock Pouch A Deer with Clay Newcomb
How To Shock Pouch A Deer with Clay Newcomb
In the 1950s James' Lawrence's grandmother taught him how to cut the lower leg bone of a deer to make backpack straps out of the legs. In this video, Clay Newcomb shows how to remove the lower leg, while leaving the dew claws, then tie the legs together to be able to carry the deer out on his back. This is a great method for hauling out a deer or antelope when you don't want to quarter up or drag the animal out. Typically, it takes about 15 minutes or less to prepare the deer and then the hunter is off to the truck.
