  • With lots of seasoning. onions and peppers. I helped butcher a deer many years ago and made sausage etc. I think now I would rather be a vegeterian that ever do that again.

  • What do you want to cook? I make excellent game! Duck, pheasant, venison, elk,walleye.

  • well, nothing specific yet... my husband wants to start hunting again (he did as a teenager) but I've never cooked any of that stuff before so I'm a bit hesitant

  • I make all kinds of stuff with venison. Stroganoff, fried and breaded, roasts. Duck, orange sauce or stewed. Pheasant seared in white wine and rolled in flour braised.

  • Only pheasant & deer. Pheasant we put in the crock pot, like chicken, then de-bone, feel for BBs, and use like cooked chicken - for hotdish, mostly. I don't cook it plain, to serve just as itself. Deer - I prefer to either grind it and use as hamburger - nothing extra needed - or roasts - throw the roast in the crock pot, dump on a packet of onion soup mix OR a bunch of chopped onion, black pepper, and beef boullion, add in a little oil and some water, and let it cook - my kids prefer that over a beef roast. We bring our trimmings to the local locker and have them made into jerky sticks.
