Bob looks back at deer season 2019 and preps for deer season 2020. We’ll show some new scouting tools already in place and look at some new techniques being tried for a successful deer hunting season for this year even though it’s only summer.
Bob is in Kansas for hopefully an opportunity to kill a big buck from this part of the country. Also on this week’s “Sportsman’s Table” we feature another South Carolina certified shrimp recipe.
Bob takes you on two deer hunts on his property in South Carolina.
Here’s a great way to cook your back strap during deer season from Chef Kathleen Hassett!
3 pounds venison back strap (tenderloin) — with all silver skin removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon basil
¼ teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 pound bacon
1 white onion, sliced
Add sea salt, basil, marjoram, and pepper into a spice grinder and pulse to combine into a fine grind.
Heat olive oil in a large saute pan.
Season back strap with the seasoning mixture; add to pan and sear well on all sides. Remove from pan and rub with rosemary, thyme and garlic.
Wrap back strap with bacon and place on a baking pan, on a thin layer of sliced onion.
Place into a 300-degree oven and roast to an internal temperature of 135 degrees for medium rare.
Remove from oven and place onto a cutting board. Let rest for 10 minutes at room temperature.
Remove bacon and slice into 8 portions.
