Shelly and Miles Owens had a lot to smile about Wednesday night! Shelly shot a nice nine point on her very first shot at her very first deer.
And right after that, these two big bucks came in. Judson Franks's buck had a double main beam. It's the biggest buck so far for the second Free Deer Stand at 111.3 lbs. dressed weight. Andy Thomas's deer was a nice 11 point.
We've started getting a few bucks in the morning as well. If history serves, we'll be pretty busy tonight and all day Friday since unsettled weather seems to bring in deer. Now how is it that, although it's sunny and calm here now, the deer stir out of their bedding when storms are approaching?

While you were watching The Weather Channel...

Those red circles just keep spinning, now don't they! In the meantime, Turner Merritt got a big 10 point! Cooler unsettled weather gets the deer moving. All the deer that came in tonight were 8 points or better!

Good luck to David Lawson!

One of our employees, David Lawson, will be leaving today to join the Marines! David has worked afternoons after school for 3 years. We all wish him the best of luck as our prayers go with him as he goes to serve our country. Thank you!

Beef Stroganoff from Kristin's Kitchen

Beef Stroganoff

1-2 pounds of beef stir fry meat
2 cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup
½ cup beef broth
½ cup sour cream
1 package of egg noodles

Cook the strips of meat on low in a pan with enough water (or beef broth) to prevent the meat from burning. The meat can be cooked quickly if you do not have much time, but the slower and longer you cook the meat, the more tender it will become.

Once the meat has cooked through, drain any excess water that did not get absorbed when cooking the meat, then put the meat back in the pan. Add both cans of cream of mushroom soup, the cream of chicken soup, and beef broth into the pan with the meat. Once you have everything mixed, let the mixture heat and combine for at least 15 minutes.

After the mixture has been heated throughout, take the pot off of the heat. Mix in the sour cream. (If you mix the sour cream in while being heated, it might curdle).

Let the mixture heat up and it is ready to be served! Our family favorite is to serve it over egg noodles, but you can put it on top of the noodle of your choice.

- The contents of this recipe tend to get salty quick when mixed together, so make sure you do not add any salt! You can add pepper to taste.
- This recipe is more of a dump and pour type recipe, not a recipe where you need to follow the precise amount of each ingredient. So once it is all combined, add more of whichever flavor you feel it needs!
- If you like mushrooms, add a drained can of sliced mushrooms.
