This is a story written by my friend Daniel Hagen, who introduced me to South Africa and showed me its true culture and people. He has recently moved to Chile to teach English. If you would like to hear more of his adventures visit here! -Evan Quite a lot about a small part of Santiago. “I grew up in this town, my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests.” – Pablo Neruda Saddam Hussein is alive and he drives a taxi in Santiago. I saw him just the other day. I have now spent just over a week in Santiago, having arrived in less than ideal circumstances.  Getting from Brazil to Chile was not a pleasant experience, with a needless...

Moose Stew with Gravy

Posted by on Jan 25, 2013 in Go West U.S., Montana, North America, Places to Trek | 0 comments

After spending three months filming a moose hunt in the mountains of Montana, packing out the quartered carcass across the rocky mountains, and processing the meat for days, I can finally reap the rewards of my labor. This is a simple and easy recipe to make, but no less tasty. The main ingredients include- -Pressure cooker -2 lbs of moose meat -6 small potatoes -1 onion -5 garlic cloves -3 long carrots -1 tbsp olive oil -salt -pepper -1/2 cup white wine -2 cups water -2 cans of beef gravy First, set your pressure cooker to brown. Chop up the moose meat into squares and brown in the pressure cooker with 1 tbsp of olive oil. After browning the meat add the 1/2 cup of white wine and allow to cook until wine is dissolved.   While the meat...

The Full Process

Posted by on Dec 28, 2012 in Go West U.S., Montana, Places to Trek | 0 comments

When you turn on a hunting television show you see the the hunt, the kill, the hunter standing over their kill, and the end. But, as every hunter knows, there is a lot more that takes place than just these few steps. What about the trek into the mountains? Watching the last convulsions of the animal before it dies? The pack-out of the 500 pound creature? Or skinning and the processing of the meat? Adding it all up, these television shows only show a small percentage of what hunting actually is. As a hunter, I am supportive of hunting if it is done the right way. If you kill it, you eat it. The poachers, the road hunters, and these television shows poorly represent actual hunters and give them a bad name. The great television hunters would have the...

The Moose Hunt

Posted by on Nov 5, 2012 in Go West U.S., Montana, Places to Trek | 0 comments

I stared up towards the top of the mountain as Dan (the hunter who I was filming a television show for) disappeared into the fog as the beginning of a long snow storm rolled over me.  I was now alone. Dan was supposed to be guiding me towards the moose that we had shot two hours earlier, but we were unable to find so far. Now, as I stood in waist deep snow hundreds of yards down a steep incline in the Northwestern Montana Rockies, the hunter who was supposed to be leading me in the direction of a wounded moose, had disappeared into a white-out. Earlier, we had first seen the bull-moose with a cow-moose grazing below us.  We moved across the crest of the mountain and ,because of the distance of the shot, laid down to shoot. There...
