A Sentimental New Year's Eve Message

Posted by on in Public Blog

I wanted to write something profound for a New Year's blog -- something appropriate for the old year going out and the new coming in. I could have written about the past year, but frankly, with all the terrorist activity, and demonstrations and plane crashes, I figured that wouldn't be on a positive note. And by the way, my glass is half full. I'm not a pessimist by nature. And then I thought I'd write about how great it would be for a new year that wouldn't have all the negatives, where we'd really make progress with the world's problems. Well.....maybe. Then I thought I'd write about my New Year's resolutions, which almost never are adhered to after a week or three. So, I figured it would be safe to write about happy times, back when I was a kid and I had no worries other than catching a bigger fish than my buddies, or head-shooting a squirrel out of a tall oak.

ALASKA WOMAN RECEIVED PROIS AWARD

On that fishing trip, we met Christine Cunningham and her good friend, Steve Meyer. Fishing was good, the ocean was rock and roll friendly, and we carried delightfully heavy coolers of fish from the boat to our vehicles.

Persistence Pays Off

Posted by on in Public Blog

There are still some hunters today who believe that does should never be targeted, no matter the circumstances. That attitude is centered on the notion that the more does, the more breeding animals, and therefore more bucks later on. That was the prevailing attitude when I was a teenager. It was considered a cardinal sin to shoot a doe. Biologists held town meetings to explain new wildlife management practices.

Announcing Next Cookbook: Jim Zumbo's 30 Favorite Recipes for Fish, Venison and Other Wild Game

Posted by on in Public Blog

Many of you know that I like to cook. No, actually I love to cook. And some of you know that I published Amazing Venison Recipes, a collection of more than 200 venison recipes. That book was published exactly 20 years ago and sold upwards of 100,000 copies. During that time, many folks asked me what my all-time favorite venison recipes are. Many also asked if I was going to do another cookbook on fish, upland game, small game, etc.
