(music) (music) (music) (music) Shotgun Chef, I’m sicker than a dog man! I got the wife and the kid the freak of nature in the other room making egg rolls.

Dan you have to go in there, I can’t handle it today. Sorry guys, the wife’s taking over today. I’m on house arrest. What’s going on Larry Smith Outdoors its the Freak of Nature here with Mom Freak of Nature.

Yeah. My dad is sicker than a dog sitting on the couch over there so he’s asked us to step in which we don’t really need him anyway so let’s get cooking. Today we are going to be making pheasant egg rolls so lets go! The first thing we need to do is cut up the pheasant.

My mom’s gonna do that because I don’t want to touch raw meat and it’s better if a parent does it. Where did we get this pheasant? Someone shot it… Who helped us get it? I don’t know? Max! Oh yeah, someone had to shoot it too.

.. So i’m gonna take the ginger and grate it. After that we’ll put it in the frying pan. (music) (music) Perfect. Scrape it. Yep. Gracias! We have the garlic, the pheasant, and the ginger in there. Should we put more garlic in or not yet? I think we’re good.

Alright. Then we have the coleslaw. With a little bit of teryaki sauce and soy sauce in it. That way when you put it in the egg roll it’s not dry. (music) (music) Fold the ends in… Then you take 2 fingers and dip them in the milk and rub it at the end which holds the egg roll together.

(music) (music) (music) (music) Cheers. Larry Smith Outdoors pheasant egg rolls. Signing out! (music) That’s good! Way better than dad’s. Can we both agree on that? Larry you’re missing out!

I’m here with Otto. Otto, if you could explain a little bit about your organization, we’ll be taking some veterans out fishing here today, just give us an idea what your organization represents. Basically what we do is, we do fundraisers to help raise money to go on hunting trips, fishing trips.

We get guides to come forward and donate and volunteer their time, which allows us to take vets out on the water. We work with veterans that are handicapped or veterans that just wanns go out. We don’t make it one or the other.

We’re called wounded warriors united of Wisconsin but we work with all vets throughout the entire state. If anybody wants to get involved with our program, you can find us on Facebook, otherwise contact me at 920 470-1845.

Thank you Otto we appreciate the opportunity to let us do this with you guys, because of the veterans we’re able to do what we enjoy doing everyday. It’s our way of giving back.
