On this week’s episode, Kyle goes on a pheasant hunt and learns the benefits of harvesting and preparing your own food.


Pheasant Hunt

Hunting is not just a popular Wisconsin past-time.  It’s a way to harvest your own food.  Today, Kyle will hunt for pheasant with hunters Keith, Alex, Mike their guide, and Peach the dog at Milford Hills in Johnson Creek, WI.  Hunting is a family tradition in Wisconsin and everyone knows someone who considers themselves a hunter.  Hunting connects you to the land and your food because you feel responsible for your harvest and try your best to use as much of it as you can.  The game you harvest is range free, humanely raised, sustainably managed, and you know where it came from.  Where does your food come from?

Next, Kyle brings the harvest into the kitchen where Chef Jason Zellner prepares some of their popular pheasant dishes.  First, Chef Jason makes his version of a well-known appetizer, pheasant poppers.  Fried with jalapenos and wrapped in bacon, the pheasant adds a new flavor to the beloved popper.  Kyle also learns how to prepare pheasant saltimbocca and gets to share the meal with his fellow hunters.
