Food Fight Friday: August Antelope

By David Draper

It may only be August, but for a very lucky few, hunting seasons have already started. A week ago Monday, archery antelope season opened in Wyoming and I found myself about 10 feet up a windmill in Unit 26. At 7:20 a.m., a buck with wide, heavy, forward-leaning horns came in for a drink and seconds later left in a hurry with my arrow all but through him. He only made it 20 yards before piling up. So, for the first time ever, I’m enjoying fresh antelope before Labor Day.

Seared Antelope Medallions Over Rice Pilaf

Vs.

Antelope Fajitas

To celebrate, I pulled the tenderloins, cut them in medallions and pan seared them in a hot skillet, which was then deglazed with a splash or two of red wine, and served over jalapeno-garlic rice pilaf.

Sticking with the antelope theme, here’s a photo of what is an easy mealtime standby at my house: anything wrapped in a tortilla. In this case, we’ll call them antelope fajitas, with a smudge of refried beans blurring the line into a burrito.

Vote for whichever photo you think looks tastiest, and don’t forget to submit your pictures to fswildchef@gmail.com.

I feel you should start having a Friday "Booze Battle", a simple vote on what you should drink for the weekend or upcoming events. Such as "Tom Collins versus Moscow Mules" for a labor day cookout.

I may have said this before, but DANO, you are a genius.

Wow! I'd eat either.
There just so different...
For a nice "sit down dinner" with family and/or friends, the medallions w/rice and a botle of red wine would be perfect. However, for sittin' on the porch with a beer just watchin' the sun set... you can't beat a fajita/burrito.
Drool...............

Medallions from the tenderloin winds for me. What cut are the fajitas made from?

Sorry, "wins" is what I meant.

David, you are the best! Enjoyed the "Big game adventure" piece in the latest magazine too. Hope you have a good fall!

Gumby - Typically I do my fajita meat from the round or sirloin, so this could be from either.

llikehunting -Thanks. That big-game piece was fun to write and I'm getting lots of great feedback on it. Glad you enjoyed.

Congrats on the Antelope David. But why the fight? Can't I just have 2-3 servings of both?

Add guacamole and pico and the Fajitas win. The medallions look delicious too and win this battle as is.
