What Happens When You Throw a 5HP Outboard Motor on a Kayak?

This is one of the most satisfying videos on the internet right now.

Kayaks certainly offer some advantages over motorized boats in that they’re cheaper, lighter to carry and can fit almost anywhere. However, you can’t cover near as much distance, nor can you pack all that much gear.

What if I told you there’s a way around at least one of those drawbacks?

A man by the name of Marty Zoffinger seemingly mastered the boat-kayak hybrid, creating what just might be the most versatile watercraft of all time.

Imagine being able to throw a boat on top of your car or in the back of your truck. Consider how many fishing doors would open if you could squeeze into those tight covers where there are undoubtedly fish.

Think about a world where you don’t have to find a boat ramp to launch. The possibilities!

It’s probably safe to say this guy knows his way around a kayak, as not only did he mention a running relationship with Pelican, but he also looked more than comfortable drilling a whole heap of holes in this one. The motor mount looks like it’d be compatible with a Minn Kota trolling motor or an electric outboard, as well, which opens up a wide variety of additional kayak fishing opportunities.

What’s even crazier is that he didn’t really know how it would turn out, or whether it would even be safe to drive. So, when it ended up passing all the tests with flying colors, he must’ve been absolutely ecstatic.

I’d imagine the sliding seat was what ultimately made the difference, as other people who’ve tried similar projects typically have an issue with weight distribution.

What amazes me the most, though, is how stable the boat seems to be even when turning at relatively high speeds.

There’s no reason this fishing kayak has to be freshwater-exclusive, either! This thing would probably kill it on a sound or some other steady saltwater.

This guy is a genius!

This is What it's Like to Decapitate a Gobbler with The Judge Revolver

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/turkey-reaping-with-the-judge/

Facebook.com
the judge revolver

This close encounter with The Judge revolver gives turkey hunting a new look.

Fan hunting for turkeys, also known as reaping, has gained popularity in the past half decade. However, not many hunters choose the Judge revolver as their shotgun of choice.

This close encounter for Culpepper will give most hunters an adrenaline rush. Can you guess how many yards this shot is taken at?

I’ve personally never shot the Judge before, but from what I understand, it’s a revolver-turned-shotgun, typically loaded with a .410 cartridge. Because the .410 is a smaller shotgun shell size one would have to get closer than if they were hunting with a .12 or .20 gauge.

It apparently is possible to take out a turkey with a .410 if the shot is just right.

WARNING: Turkey reaping, while fun, is only recommended on private land where it is certain there are no other hunters. I hope it’s obvious after this video why that is the case. When you’re hiding behind a real turkey fan, hunters could get confused.

Cooking: Wild Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Posted from: https://www.bowhunting.net/2019/05/cooking-wild-turkey-breakfast-sausage/

By MeatEater

Wild Turkey Apple Sausage Recipe

Ingrediants: 2 pounds skinless, boneless turkey legs (or a mix of legs and breast), cut into 1½-inch cubes 14 ounces thick-sliced bacon, cut into large pieces 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more as needed 1 large onion, diced 2 medium sweet and tart apples, such as Honeycrisp, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch cubes 2 to 2½ tablespoons packed brown sugar, or to taste 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves 2 tablespoons kosher salt 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg Zest of 1 lemon

Freeze the turkey meat and bacon on a baking sheet for 30 to 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until soft, about 8 minutes. Stir in the apples and continue to cook until soft, 6 to 8 minutes.

Transfer to a large plate, spread in a thin layer, and let cool in the refrigerator.

Grind the turkey and bacon into a large bowl set over a large bowl of ice. Add the cooled onions and apples, the sugar, thyme, salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon zest. Mix well with your hands.

Pinch off a small bit of the sausage mixture and cook in a little oil in a skillet to test for seasoning. Adjust seasonings as necessary.

Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Form patties with a slightly wet hand. I like to make them 3 inches in diameter because they’re easy to throw on the grill or in a pan, but you can make them any size you want.

Cooking: Preheat a cast-iron pan over medium heat and put a little oil in the pan. Working in batches, sear the sausage patties until browned on both sides and cooked throughout, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Note: To freeze, stuff sausage into poly meat bags in ½-pound or 1-pound quantities, depending on how many people you typically serve. You can find all the special equipment used for this recipe at Weston Cooking Game: Wild Turkey Apple Sausage brought to you by Weston.
