FUNNY VIDEO: Melissa Walks on Water...NOT!

FUNNY VIDEO: Melissa Walks on Water...NOT!
Two Future Hunters from Hempsted, TX at the Texas Trophy Hunter's Extravaganza.

Getting kids excited about hunting and the outdoors can come in a variety of ways, but this past weekend I felt like one of the kids as I had a little fun at the Hunter's Extravaganza in Houston, TX.

Although sport shows are a great way to book hunts, look at mounts, and meet outfitters it really is a fun place to take a family.  There is a variety of food, shopping, and fun games for everyone.  Throughout the show I met a ton of young hunters, swapped stories, and even joined in on a little of the kids' fun on the last day.  First up, I took one of my friend's daughters Tyler out for a little shooting.  She wants to be a bow hunter someday too so we started with 3-D targets with balloons on them for the kids.


After a good round of shooting, we did a little shopping, then she picked out a game she wanted us to do together, it was called Bubble Runners.


I have to admit, walking over to the game even I was smiling ear to ear.  It looked like a lot of fun and they even had a bubble for us big kids :)  Once you get over the embarrassment of looking like a hamster it was quite entertaining inside the ball and by everyone's laughter it must have been pretty fun to watch as well!

After a lot of fun and a pretty good workout, both Tyler and I enjoyed the rest of the show together and hopefully it was a day she won't forget.  Not every kid will be interested in hunting, but taking them out and showing kids what the outdoor hunting industry is all about should be a number one priority for every hunter.

Fare Game: Stuffed Elk Backstrap Recipe

Take your venison loin to a whole new level with this delicious reverse-seared stuffed elk backstrap. Smoking the backstrap on a Camp Chef Woodwind pellet grill first, then finishing it on a blazing-hot skillet or flattop, creates a perfectly cooked, medium-rare steak with a crispy, seared exterior. The filling of diced mushrooms and creamy Boursin cheese adds a whole new level of amazing flavors to an otherwise classic smoked venison loin.
