There are numerous cookbooks. Listen to the older folks who have hunted all their lives. The best way to learn is in your own kitchen. Find a recipe that you may like. Then critique it and change to your taste. Remember what works for you and what doesn't.

What he said. Remember, the taste of game is different. I like venison, dove, rabbit, squirrel, and quail. But a deer is not a cow, and will not taste like beef any more than shrimp tastes like lobster.

How game is dressed and handled will affect flavor. If you shoot a deer, you ae pretty much done hunting for the day. You field dress it right there, and get it to where you can hang and cool it NOW. That does not involve driving around half the county showing off your deer!

And Google is your friend!

Down here in La. Most hunters here cook thier own game. A cajun women is usually taught by her father or her husband and don't forget grand maw....Search Don the outdoors guy. Radio talk show host Don Dubuc. He has game recipes on his web sight, and you can email him for a lot of advice. His radio show is on Sat. mornings at 5:00 am till 7:00 am on WWL am.....

ask other hunters for recipes, grab a cook book. check out our thread here. some meat you may like, others not so much.. i went duck and goose hunting once. while it was fun i was not very happy with dinner and thus ive never done it again. if you dont like the way a certain prey tastes, make a note of it and just dont hunt for that animal any longer.

Take some generic cooking classes. Deer sliced thin cooks really quick. Cubed deer meat, throw it in the crock pot with 'soup starter' add a few fresh veggies if desired, follow the directions. Good stuff. Deer burgers, add some fat, pork or beef your choice.


Deer burgers on a kaiser roll, slice of onion and tomato w/melted provolone cheese a little mayo, is what I had last night. mmmmm
