Idea- link up with Chef Roi Choi or Chef David Chang for a celebrity cooking co-host episode. They're amazing chefs who like Steve uses traditional foods from different cultures and combines or alters the techniques and recipes with amazing results. I bet he could help Steve figure out other ways to solve some of the different cooking problems associated with different game meats. They're both funny as heck and specialize in creating new recipes and are definitely open to new experiences like hunting, as you can tell from their Netflix cooking shows, "The Chef Show" and "Ugly Delicious". I bet Steve could take them on a hunt based around what type of game they want to experiment with and make 2 episodes out of it! Take care y'all!

Average Everyday Fisherman Show
I went to MO turkey hunting one year. We ended up going with some friends to a fry in the little town and they had 55 gallon drums cut in half and burning hot. They had fried squirrel, fried turkey, and fried catfish. Along with the fixings, I was in heaven and fat as a hog. Great people and new friends were made and the kinds of friends that you can only make in the hunting/fishing world.

Up here in the Pacific Northwest..Turkey season is usually wet or freezing, and if your lucky you just might get a beautiful sunny day, but not normally. Though my best hunt ever (so far), was when I was able to call in a lone Tom over a hundred yards out, and then turn him 180 to get him into range...with No decoys. Took over an hour of gentle calling.

I wish I was 15 years younger and Steve was my uncle. I would love to have some exposure to this. Sadly, I've grown up camping in Southern California. I've learned a lot from my father and grandfather, but neither were hunters.

Steve, thank you for doing what you do. I watch your show with my 9 year old daughter, who just started coming out with me on goose/duck hunting outings. I think I have her hooked! But, from your perspective and insight on hunting and why we hunt, I can see she is really getting a deeper understanding of what we do. She is seeing the connection with nature, and balance, as well as comradely and how important it is. I appreciate you helping a lot of us to pass on the outdoors to the next generation. Again, thank you!

From here on out, all the hunting buddies won’t believe the story of the triple bearder that walked within three yards on an exposed hunter, until they see the film.

Found a honey hole of ramps near my house in Milwaukee, County WI just last year! Threw a few on a couple homemade pizzas on the grill. Absolutely fantastic! Just a good reminder to point out that they're extremely over-harvested in parts of North America. I think it's even illegal to pick them in a few places.

I had a buddy that would net carp and put them in his bath tub for a week changing the water out everyday to get the muddy taste out of them. He also said that there is a something you have to cut out of the carp to stop it from tasting bad. I wish I could remember what he said it was.

Soooooo ok. Love love your stuff Steve. But dam get out of your and ur hunting buddies comfort zone when hunting. Watch the THP and get some birds down. Stop staying with the norm of hunting/fishing tv BS and do something original. This looks so canned its not even funny. GOOOOOO HUNT PUBLIC Land! Spot and stalk not sit and wait!

Buffalo carp takes a long time to get big and are usually confused with the common carp. If you can leave them alone.

Steve, You're harvesting ramps incorrectly. You should really cut them, so you leave the roots in the ground. (So you're taking the bulb and the greens.) Ramps have been almost wiped out in areas because of people pulling the whole thing out.

Tip with carp that the old Italians tell around here is you soak the nuggets in salted water for 12 hours before cooking.

Ok, that was the worst butcher job I've ever seen on a buffalo or sucker. They are incredible table fare, and incredibly common at fish fries in certain regions- I prefer them to crappie and catfish. The "y-bones" (more of a 5-point bone in suckers) are the issue, but the best way to deal with the bones is something called "scoring". Remove the scales from the fish, but leave the skin on ("fleecing" or "skin-scaling"), then fillet it, and score the fillets. Bread with a cornmeal-based breading and deep fry. The hot oil will soften the bones into nothing, as the scoring allows the oil access to the bones. Here's a couple videos for anyone interested in trying it out. Spring sucker fishing is probably my second favorite thing about spring- right behind chasing turkeys. I'm almost begging people to try eating these things.
