Depth In The Field

Venison Shanks cooked and served with sauceAsk a dozen hunters what their favorite cut of meat is on wild deer and you will likely get a handful who tell you it is shanks. The shank is a cut that gets a good work out, especially on wild game, and as a result it has a lot of flavor. Made up of a handful of muscles that all terminate at the joint on the shank, there is a lot of connective tissue holding it all together. When cooked properly, this connective tissue breaks down and adds a great richness and luster to any dish. This recipe is simple one, light on ingredients and lots of room for the shanks to take center stage and shine.

This recipe can be made with shanks from any animal, even crosscut beef shanks, just be sure to adjust ...Read More

pots of syrup boiling over campfireMaple syrup was first collected by the native people of North America. While there are no verified accounts of how maple syrup production began, one popular legend suggests maple sap being used in place of water to cook venison served to a Native American chief.

The majority of the world’s maple syrup supply is produced in the Northeastern part of the continent. The sap consists of about 98% water and 2% sugar – to make the syrup, the sap must be boiled allowing the water to evaporate. The final product is roughly 33% water and 67% sugar content. The darker the syrup the stronger the flavor. 

The state of Vermont – the top U.S. producer of maple syrup – distinguishes four different maple syrup...

Submerged to 40 feet depth my two dive buddies and I sat kneeling to film a crinoid, an ancient ancestor to the sea star which hasn’t evolved for millennia. Crinoids are nearly alien creatures, without complex vision but equipped with the ability to flee from potential predators by whirling their five arms against the water, allowing them to swim to ...

I buckle my fins and sweep my right arm behind me to locate my breathing apparatus before shifting back, finding that edge of balance on the Zodiac’s pontoon. The day is calm, silence accented by the gentle popping and rolling of behemoth cerulean icebergs nearby. I turn my head and scan the dark, still water, ensuring that the loosely packed surface ice has cleared from my ent...

Story and Photography by Alyssa Adler 

In cold water diving, sight is your strongest sense. Touch is inhibited by the thick exposure gear covering your body and hands. A hood, pulled tight over your head, leaves sound muffled and strange. The only smell you may experience is that of your breath as you occasionally exhale to equalize your mask. The rare slip of the regulator mouthpiece might allow a brief taste of your new environment, but nothing els...

The sun rises during an early morning wind storm in a valley outside of Bozeman, Montana. Filmmakers Casey Anderson and Brad Orsted have already been up for hours, scanning the landscape for four white spots through their thermal binoculars; a mountain lioness and her three cubs whose bodies glow bright in the heat sensing optics. Despite winds reaching 40 mph, the lioness makes an appearance on a peak a few miles away, returning home from a long night of caring for her cubs (read: killing a mule dee...

Wide open spaces and big skies make this place feel like summer vacations when I was little, visiting my grandparent...Read More
