Show Notes

On this episode of Huntavore, Nick is joined by James Zandstra of The Fair Chase Podcast.
This past fall, James went on an epic adventure, hunting a Moose in BC, Canada. On top of

driving. While finding and shooting the moose was one way up the mountain, getting the prize
back home is the way down. If you are thinking about a bountiful long distance meat hunt, then
this is the episode for you. Lots of heavy hauling on this episode of Huntavore.

sharing the moose meat with others. James discusses his experience making sausage from
deer meat and shares his recipe. He also talks about his love for charcuterie and recalls a
