Fishing & Hunting Versus Buying Meat. My passion for harvesting our own Meat.
Sometimes I’m hesitant to share pictures or videos of hunting because in the back of my mind I feel somewhat guilty. It has a different feel to me than fishing (which to most might sound silly) but, I LOVE animals. I always have and I always will. I have grown up with dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, a pet goat, pet squirrels, turtles, fish, and MORE! When I was a[...]

Ocracoke Flounder :) AKA a 8lb 13oz big ol’ Corncrake Doormat!
Y'all.....seeing this monster laying on the sand that night in Ocracoke was just wild! We were in shock when we first walked up but without hesitation, I gigged him QUICK!

Catching Bluefish in Hatteras, North Carolina in my BOAT :)
Once you find one Bluefish, you're in there! :) Because most of the time once you've found one, you've found a ton!

Homemade Carolina Crab Cakes Recipe :)
Oh my goodness, I can't believe this was our first time making homemade Crab Cakes! Y'all, they were SO DELICIOUS!! Crab Cakes have always been my favorite go-to order at a restaurant because it was the one seafood meal that I hadn't ever spent the time making at home. I guess because it's not something that we typically try to catch a lot of and even if we did[...]
