Jackie Clay’s canning article

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Hello and thank you for the wonderful article Canning 101. I agree with everything you have written in this article.

My wife and I have been canning for 45 years now and passed this procedure along to both our children (boy & girl).  We also can year round, venison or moose (when I’m lucky) chili, and stew.  One of my favorites is canning venison with just 1 teaspoon of salt nothing else added.  This makes a great meal over rice, noodles or bread as the canned venison turns out like it is in gravy.

Thanks again.

Dear Editor,

Truly appreciated Jackie Clay’s article on canning.

The article was informative, personable, approachable and inspiring.

All in all  fun to read.

Thanks to both you and Jackie

“Women and Guns” article

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Just a quick note to say thanks for the good article. It’s good information that applies to not only several women in my family, but to me as well.

I’m 5’7″, 132lbs, and it can be tough to find quality equipment or information. I shoot a Model 7 Youth in 7mm08, an 870 Youth in 20ga, and prefer a small frame 9mm (Federal 115gr JHP).
