..... A relatively new monument to "Buffalo Bill" Cody is located near Oakley, KS.

 Legend has it that 10 miles west, there was a contest to see who was the real "Buffalo Bill", Cody or William Comstock. Both provided meat to the Kansas Pacific Railroad workers. Cody won 56 to 37. He shot a .50 Springfield that would drop a bison with a thud. Comstock used a .44 Henry lever repeater. 

Supposedly, spectators came all the way from St. Louis to witness the event.

  • Recipe courtesy of Dustin Teasley, KDWPT

Cold Pack Pickled Fish

1 quart fish (rib meat from carp, white bass or drum fillets)….makes around 3 pints.

2 medium yellow onions

3 C Kosher Salt

1 C Port Wine (White but red will work)

1 C Sugar

2 C or more of White Vinegar

2 C Water

2 Tbsp Pickling Spice

Cut meat into pieces no thicker than 1/2”. In a bowl place a layer of salt, then place a layer of fish, then cover that layer with salt. So on and so forth until you have used all the fish and then cover it with salt. Set in fridge 24 hours. Next rinse all salt off fish and place in container covering fish with white vinegar. Set in fridge 24 hours. In a sauce pan, mix 1 C port wine, 1 C sugar, 2 C vinegar, 2 C water, and 2 Tbsp pickling spice and bring to a boil and remove from heat. Clean onions and slice. Once the solution you boiled has cooled, strain out spices. In pint jars create layers of onion and fish until you reach the neck of the jar. Pour cooled solution in jar until all meat and onion is covered. Place ring and lid on jar and set in fridge 24 hours before eating.
