TPW TV: Will Hunt for Food

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

This is Passport to Texas

This month the Texas Parks and Wildlife TV series follows a self-proclaimed foodie as he learns how to hunt. Producer, Alan Fisher was with him every step of the way.

Coming up the week of April 17th we have a story called Will Hunt for Food, in which we follow a person interested in hunting for the first time through his interest in local foods. People are really more interested in organic and natural food, free range food, and of course wild game has always been all of those things.

There is a primal back to basics element of it. What can we do and how can we find ways to eat that we know what we’re eating.

So we follow this person as he learns the ropes and takes a hunter education course.

The goal today is just essentially familiarization with a shotgun…

And learns to shoot a firearm…

Now, it’s loaded and ready to go. Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until we’re ready to fire. Pull.

And eventually goes on his first hunt and makes some dinner out of it.

Let’s get this going [stirring, sizzling] We’ll cook that for about 30 minutes.

I think definitely the story will show that where there are perceived hurdles, there are many resources out there, and a lot of people who would like to help you get started hunting. For more information, folks can visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.

Thanks, Alan.

That’s our show… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
