World famous chef, international restaurateur and the host of a gazillion hit reality television shows, Gordon Ramsay is back in the field hunting for his protein again.
After hunting and butchering a hog earlier this year, Ramsay gave deer hunting a try in Norfolk, England. In a scene posted to Youtube from an episode of the UK-based Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word, he takes viewers through his preparation for the hunt and the stalking of a wild deer, something he’s never done before.
“I’ve always wanted to stalk wild deer, it’s one of the ultimate stand offs between man and beast,” he says in the intro. “A centuries old tradition with a huge pay off, a chance to eat some of the finest game in the world.”
After taking target practice the day before, Ramsay cooks up a simple liver and onions dish. Now that’s something Gordon can master. The next day he and his guide track deer early in the morning and then hole up in a stand where they have a long vantage point in several directions.
“Finally after hours of stalking I had the perfect clear shot on a beuatiful wild deer in my sights, but something didn’t feel right,” Ramsay said. “Instead of pulling the trigger, I took my finger off it.”
It looked like he didn’t have a great shot. The deer kept moving, but Gordon was discouraged.
“I don’t know, maybe I’m becoming a vegetarian,” he said.
To find out how his deer hunting trip eventually plays out, you’ll have to tune in to Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word on Hulu and other cable providers.
