[Narrator] On this week’s Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine, Bob heads west to Norwich Kansas for some early winter duck hunting. Also, on this week’s Sportsman’s Table, we feature a South Carolina certified skirt steak recipe. Plus, we take a look at Browning’s new Cynergy shotgun. All this and a whole lot more and it begins right now.
This has been a great day.
Look at that, wow. Nice.
[Bob] A flight behind us, Joey.
[Joey] Look, here, here.
[Bob] Rooster’s gonna get ’em.
[Joey] Come on, come on.
Fetch him up, fetch him up.
Nicely done, bud. Perfect pair, man.
Good start to the morning. Hey, Travis, listen man, I’m telling you, woo hoo.
Best duck hunting we’ve had in a while.
Listen, it’s gonna be the best duck hunt I’ve probably had in my lifetime. Folks, we are in Kansas, just outside of Norwich Kansas, not too far from Wichita. We came in, drove all night long, 18 plus hours to get here. Travis Stevens, the property owner right here, man, I’ll tell you what, and we’ll introduce Joey Robinson from Sumter South Carolina. He’s got Rooster the dog. He’s going to get these first two ducks that we got down. I tell you what, man, listen I don’t know how Joey has kept this, Travis, as the best kept secret from me, and him only living 30 miles from me in South Carolina. Rooster finally got to work. Oh my goodness. One of the great things is you love duck hunting. You’ve got this thing just absolutely prepared to the “T”. Get ’em, Rooster, get ’em. Beautiful, wow. Two big ducks.
[Travis] Mine’s the black one. The other’s his brother. He has a brother. I don’t take ’em out together. He’s dominant over
[Bob] Is he really? Wow.
[Travis] He won’t even go get a bird ’cause he’s afraid Trigger’ll whoop his butt. Yeah, he’s just a big lover. Don’t sit still long enough either. That’s just how we want ’em to come in right there.
[Bob] I’m telling you, just like that. Golly, woo, man. What they’re gonna start doing is kinda just dropping in.
Just dropping in after this ice. You know, folks, when we got here early this morning, before dawn, the pond was water free out here, ducks on it. Come in early before shooting light and then as sun started coming up, again, as it always will out here, in three and a half feet of water in these sloughs and ponds, that ice will start setting in. We did good, Joey.
Y’all shot good. Let me see one of them hummers.
Getting old and .
Oh my goodness.
That’s a pretty duck.
That is a pretty duck, wow, beautiful. It don’t get no better than that.
[Narrator] Stay tuned, when we come back from commercial break, we head back to Kansas for more duck hunting action.

That was a good one. Good shot. Good shot.
They going to. Yeah, pretty duck right there now. Look at that one. Now that one’s a good mature duck there. Oh, he’s got two curls on the rear end, looky there.
[Joey] Fetch him up, fetch him up. Fetch him up, fetch him up, fetch him up, fetch him up.
[Travis] All he had to do was get ready to call in.
[Joey] Fetch him up.
[Bob] Oh, Rooster. Rooster needed something to do. Rooster needed something to do. Another one just like that one, come on. Look at that, wow.
[Joey] Get him!
[Man] Oh shit.
[Bob] I’d rather Joey done that than me.
[Joey] Good boy, good boy!
[Bob] Sorry, Rooster.
[Joey] Come on, buddy.
[Bob] Beautiful retrieve. Good boy, good boy.
[Bob] Look at that. He busted a little ice, too.
[Joey] Come on, bud. Come on, bud. Good boy, good boy.
Well, folks, we’re duck hunting in Kansas. I’ve got my two good friends here with me, Joey Robinson, he’s from Sumter, South Carolina and he’s trying to call his wife. It’s her birthday today. So, he’s trying to kill two birds with one stone. And Rooster just retrieved my duck. Nice retrieve, Joey, nice retrieve.
Thank you, thank you.
Oh, man, look at that. Kansas mallard.
Happy birthday, baby.
He didn’t even get the chance to take his mask off. What do you think? Woo, yes sir! All right!
It’s a little high, but that’s all right.
[Joey] He’s here, Rooster, here.
[Bob] Hey, Rooster.
He’s hiding back there, Rooster. He’s hiding.
Here’s another one.
[Travis] Another one right there, Joey.
No it’s not, nope, sorry. My eyes are playing tricks on me here. There he’s getting it. There you go, Rooster. There you go, buddy. You know, it’s funny, they’re not circling much. They’re just coming and dropping right on around.
[Travis] They all have moods just like everybody else.
Yeah, they do. That’s it. It’s a beautiful morning in Kansas. I got him, I got him.
[Travis] Them suckers didn’t wanna fall. Finally got that one right above my head.
[Bob] I can’t believe we missed that other one.
[Travis] Got both of them though, at least. He dropped right there.
[Bob] Oh, did he?
[Travis] I got him right above our heads.
[Bob] Oh, okay, did the dog already get him?
[Travis] Yeah, the dog got him.
[Bob] Oh, okay.
[Bob] Rooster got him, Joey.
[Bob] Well done, man.
Good shooting, good shooting.
[Bob] He’s coming in.
[Travis] Get ready, Bob.
Good job, good job. Down in front of the blind.
Boom! Nice calling, bud.
Good, good, good shot.
Can I get across to that dike, Travis?
Can I get across to that dike?
It’s shallow right here. You can go straight right there. Let me take my gun in case . Good shot.
I tell you what, he was going. He was headed away, man. The Wicked Wing.
Fetch him up. Here, fetch him.
Oh my goodness, come here, Rooster. You got my duck, buddy. Woo, yeah, you got my duck!
Man, that’s a long shot, bud. A long shot, buddy.
Long shot. Good shot.
Did anybody ever tell you, you make a good retriever?
[Narrator] After commercial break, we head to Deck 383 in Murrells Inlet for another great South Carolina certified recipe.
[Narrator] The Sportsman’s Table is brought to you by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Whether you live in South Carolina or out of state, be sure to buy South Carolina grown meats, vegetables and fruits. Make sure your food is South Carolina certified. It’s a matter of taste.
Welcome to our Sportsman’s Table edition this week. Joining me today as my guest chef, Tom Mulally. He is the chef, instructor and the owner Strant Catering right here in Murrells Inlet. We’re at Deck 383 here at Wacca Wache Marina and that is our cooking destination for the day.
Man, it’s always good to see you, brother.
Great to see you. Great to see you.
What have you got on the menu for me today?
I’m gonna do something a little bit different. I’ve never done beef on your show, so we’ve got fresh from Price Farms a skirt steak and this is from Price Farms. They’re outta Kingstree South Carolina. Beautiful, nice piece of meat.
[Bob] And you already got the grill going.
Oh yeah, oh yeah. You gotta have it hot. Gotta have that nice sizzle. And we’re gonna season it with a little salt and pepper. No bland food allowed as we know.
Now, skirt steak? Last time I checked, I didn’t see many cows wearing dresses.
I know, I know. It’s a little thin. It’s a thinner cut of meat. It’s not filet mignon, per se, but when you have a cut of meat like this, if you cut it thin against the grain, it breaks down the muscle fibers. It becomes nice and flavorful.
[Bob] I gotcha.
Good stuff, good stuff. We’ll add a little oil there. Salt and pepper the other side. It’s a nice cut of meat, again, when you cut it thin against the grain.
[Bob] Now, how long you gonna let that sear for?
Me personally, I like my red beef like rare to mid-rare. It’ll probably need about two minutes on each side.
If somebody likes it on medium or mid-well, it’s gonna need a few more after that.
Oh yeah, and that’s quick, too.
It’s nice and thin. It sautes really quick and it’s very flavorful as well.
Well folks, listen, log onto bobredford.com if you want a copy of Tom’s recipe for the steak. You know, South Carolina Certified SC grown. You guys do that so well.
Got it all.
Especially over here at the beach.
You know how our chefs are. We’re big into farm-to-table. We’re big into supporting local purveyors.
The way it should be.
Okay, Jerry, I’m gonna stop. Okay, I’m ready whenever you are.
I’m ready. All right, Bob, we are in great shape. We’re gonna pull our meat off. We’re gonna slice it thin against the grain so it’ll be nice and tender for us.
Now, there is a key to this, because a lot of folks, when they get cuts of meat like this, that they don’t do this right. It’s tough and it’s hard to cut, right?
Correct, against the grain is the key. As you can see, the lines of the meat are going this way, so you wanna cut it the opposite way. And that breaks down the muscle fibers and that’s what’s gonna make ’em more tender for us.
[Bob] I gotcha, okay. Man, looks awesome. That’s just the way I like it, too.
There you go, perfect. I aim to please, Bob. I aim to please.
[Bob] I know you do.
Excellent. But now we have to garnish it. You know how my plates always come alive. We’re gonna use some fresh roasted Yukon gold potatoes. I got these from Lee’s Farm Farmer’s Market down the Inlet. Great stuff, great stuff. Again, it’s fresh and local. Family-owned business, just great people. Roasted carrots, I love roasted carrots. We eat with the eyes first, Bob, as you know. We’re gonna put some color and flavor out there as we always do.
[Bob] Oh yeah, you always do.
Exactly, exactly. That’s what makes you call me back for the show.
[Bob] I’m tell you, man, we love having you here.
Asparagus. Thank you, sir. Thank you, sir.
And I know the folks at Deck 383 here in Murrells Inlet, they love having you down here.
Great people as well. Another family-owned establishment. Supporting our locals. We’re gonna garnish it with some cool red bell pepper diamonds. You know, it’s a chef thing. Just gotta be a little bit different.
[Bob] All in the eye of the beholder.
[Tom] That’s it. The plate is coming alive. We’ve let our meat rest a little bit. We’re gonna put this bad boy on the plate. And they’re all gonna come running for dinner.
[Bob] It’s just really remarkable how you guys can put a menu together. I know that’s what you do. That’s your life as a chef.
Good food is the way to people’s hearts. That’s what I love about food, Bob. It brings people together.
That a little wine sauce?
Yeah, this is a red wine sauce. A little cabernet sauce. There you go, sir. What do you think? Looks good enough to eat.
[Bob] It does, Tom. It’s always a pleasure, man, having you here.
[Tom] Thank you, Bob.

Welcome back to this week’s show. We had a great time duck hunting in Kansas. They were flying. It was cold. Just the way it ought to be. You know, there are three things that you gotta have. You gotta have a great place to go duck hunting. You gotta have a good dog and you even gotta have a shotgun and I’ve got one I wanna show you this week. From the folks at Browning, the Cynergy Wicked Wing Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades. It is a three and a half inch over and under. It is cerakote bronze finish. It comes in 26, 28 and 30 inch length and that’s what I’ve been using this week. I tell you what, if you haven’t had a chance to look at this wonderful shotgun, you need to log onto browning.com and find a dealer near you. But, better yet, I gotta ask you. Browning, the best there is. What’s in your gun safe? This Cynergy Wicked Wing shotgun, folks, has a cerakote bronze finish and is combined with Mossy Oak’s Shadow Grass Blades camo. The adjustable comb and a quarter-inch stock spacer, well, they really make it easy, so you can dial in a perfect fit. The camo, the composite stock with the textured gripped surfaces and the recoil pad. Make no mistake about it, that Inflex recoil pad is awesome, especially when you’re shooting threes and three and a half inch shells. Combining the Cynergy Wicked Wing shotgun with the Wicked Wing Browning Ammo, what a great combination. And ducks, they’ll be flying and they’ll also be coming down. I will tell you, again, Browning, the best there is. What’s in your gun safe? Log onto browning.com and locate a dealer near you and check out the Cynergy Wicked Wing shotgun from Browning. Well, that’s our show for this week. I really appreciate you joining us. Duck hunting, it’s always a great pleasure to go somewhere to shoot some ducks. And this year, nonetheless, we went on a long trip. Hope you enjoyed tagging along. We enjoyed bringing it to you. Again, the outdoors is my passion. I want it to be yours, too. We’ll see you right back here again next week on another episode of Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine.
