Great Plains Meatloaf

Latest posts by A.J. Fick (see all)

The confluence of the foothills of the Rockies and the western edge of the Great Plains is a magical place where two ecosystems literally collide that I look forward to hunting every year. Whenever I’m there, I can’t help but imagine the millions of bison that once roamed freely across the plains. The antelope that reign king there today are a captivating and unique animal in their own right, but they are missing their plains brethren, the bison.

I decided to reunite them, with a take on a hearty, satisfying meatloaf. With hints of sage to complement the two meats, it’s perfect on a crisp winter day after returning home from a late-season hunt. Enjoy!

I was born and raised in northeast Pennsylvania, and currently live in the hill country of Texas. I consider myself a western hunter at heart, enjoying glassing vast landscapes and the thrill of the stalk. My motivations as an outdoorsman are rooted in the sustenance and physical aspects. In fact, my largest driving factor for physical fitness is preparing for upcoming hunts and ensuring I’m well prepared to climb mountains and cover ground with a heavy pack.
