    Whole venison leg*
    Head of cabbage*
    Carrots*
    Onions*
    Beets*
    Potatoes*
    Pears*
    Blue cheese*
    Apricots*
    zucchini*


    Dice 3 Apricots and 2 pears, two onions, 10 cloves of garlic, and add it to three bottles of hard cider or if you can get it, 36oz of blueberry apple jack. Add a quarter cup of cracked black pepper, a quarter cup of cracked white pepper, a taablespoon of crushed red pepper, and 2 Tbsp of crushed corriander. Put in a wide-needle marinade injector and inject your venison leg as much as you can. Rub olive oil on the leg then pepper the outside of the leg and also cover it with a lot of kosher salt.

    Toss that onto two aluminum pans on top of the surface of your bbq grill on med-low heat, turning it every 45 minutes and reapplying the remainder of your marinade with a slop brush. It oughtta take about 3 or so hours if youre doing it right. If youre doing it REALLY right, it ought to take 4 or more hours.

    Boil the potatoes, the beets, and the carrots whole and then let them cool. Chop them into little cubes, about a quarter inch by a quarter inch. Add a half bag of finely chopped spinach, fresh chopped green onion, parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and a touch of brown mustard. Serve chilled as a salad.

    Make a pastry dough and top it with chopped apricots and pears mixed with a lil honey and cubed blue cheese. Bake it till brown.

    Chop the cabbage finely and add grated carrot to it, chopped parsley, chopped red cabbage, garbanzo beans, olive oil, wine vinegar, salt and pepper, to make a european coleslaw (no milk or mayo).

    Take the zucchini and shred it into a bowl. Add an egg, black pepper, kosher salt, and a little grated cheddar cheese. Fry it in little pacakes till golden brown and serve with sour cream and applesauce.

    Since there's no such thing as 'enough' venison jerky, and buying beef to jerk is expensive, try jerking some catfish fillets. You can use the same recipe as above, but leave off the tenderizer. Just like venison/beef jerky, different spices and marinades give you different tasting jerky, so will using different recipes for fish jerky. I don't know how long it will last. The last batch I made was disappearing so fast that I took a ziplock bag of it to work. That lasted almost three weeks before I finished it all off.

    6 squirrels
    2 cups chopped onions
    2 cups chopped celery
    1 cup chopped salt pork
    4 cups water

    Brown 2 tablespoons flour in shortening in skillet. Add one cup hot water and one cup liquid from the squirrel pot. Stir well and remove from heat.
    Remove squirrel pieces from pot, add the flour mixture and the browned flour mixture to liquid in the pot. Mix well and cook for a couple minutes until it starts to thicken. Line a casserole pan with pie crust. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven. Put in layer of squirrel, layer of hard-cooked eggs and 1 cup squirrel pot liquid. Repeat layers until casserole is full. Use as much as possible of remaining squirrel liquid. Top with pastry crust. Slit pastry top and dot with butter all over. Bake at 350 until crust is brown. Serve with hot biscuits, candied sweet potatoes, seasoned green beans and hot coffee. Peach fried pies for dessert.
    This is a seasonal treat that is totally worth the effort presented here.

    Howdy all. I noticed a while back in a bait thread a brother mentioning that he had tried venison for bait, another brother had disgustedly suggested trying to use geese because there were so many of the darned things and he thought that they didn't taste particularly good for that matter.
    Here are a couple recipes that buddies of mine in the outfitters camps use when preparing goose, Canada's or Snow's, maybe'll change a few minds on the goose score.

    Goose Nuggets
    2 pcs whole goose breast
    1/2 cup bread crumbs
    1/2 cup flour
    1tsp salt
    pepper to taste
    peanut oil

    Start by slicing the breasts into bitesize or slightly larger pieces; with the salt pepper, crumbs and flour make a mixture in a mixing bowl; take the meat, roll and coat in a layer of the flour/crumb mixture.
    You will need a frying pan or wok, preheat and add the peanut oil(you can add a little fresh garlic or cayenne pepper to the oil to spice things up if you like). When the oil is hot place nuggets into pan and cook till golden on the outside.
    Goose should remain slightly pink at the centre so don't overcook.

    Jalapeno' Cheddar stuffed Goose
    This is a recipe that can be modified to taste, meaning if you like your food hot you can choose to add more or fewer peppers.

    2 pcs whole goose breast
    1 container pickled jalapenos OR 2 fresh jalapenos(sliced)
    1 cup grated cheddar cheese(strong or mild, your preference)(mozarella is a good substitute as well)
    1/2 cup diced onion
    2-3 bamboo skewers, or long toothpicks

    This is a simple and quick recipe. The guys often prepared this and cooked it over coals in the camps, but I've found that it works fine over a gas bbq.

    Slice the breast open along the widest point, starting near but not at the one end and stopping your cut before you open the opposite end. The result should be a pocket. Take the peppers and cheese and onion and fill the pocket, allowing enough room to pinch and fold the pocket closed along the initial cut. Push toothpicks or short skewers through to close the pocket.
    Cook over low to medium heat for about twenty minutes(depending also on the thickness of the breast). You may also want to try cooking this wrapped in aluminum foil instead of straight on the grill, was a variation that the differnt camp cooks used and I've found that it keeps the meat more tender.

    Good eating gents.

    We take our elk/deer tenderloins and wrap them in a meat cloth and leave them in the fridge for 3 to 4 weeks. Part of the reason a ribeye steak taste so good from a store is because it is over a month old. All that time has allowed the meat to partially break down. When you go to get your meat, there may even be some mold growing on the edges. Just slice the mold off. I know this sounds weird, but honestly, once you've aged wild game meat you will be hooked. It is fabulous.

    Another trick for people who can't get the "gamey" taste out of sliced meat straight from a deer. Marinade the meet for 2 or 3 days completely covered in olive oil, with some worschteshire sauce if you like. The olive oil pulls out the blood from the meat. When it is done marinading the meat will appear brown. Now the most important part is how you cook the meat. If you are grilling, it is ipmerative that you dont over cook the meat. Heat your grill as hot as it will go. Start slapping your sliced meat on the grill. It should flame up from the olive oil and sear the meat. After about 30 seconds, flip the meat. Wait 30 seconds tops, and it's ready to eat. Now, we all have those relatives who see some pink in wildgame meat and won't eat it, Even though that meat has been taken care of and cleaned far beyond the meat you get at a grocery store. Well, if you cook this way, you don't have to worry about that because your meat has turned brown in the marinading process, thus you can't tell if the meat is cooked all the way through or not.

    A truly Southern recipe. A good side dish to go with this is sweet potatoes. You can also grill over coals and you can use cornish game hens if you arn't a hunter(lol)! Original recipe yield: 8 servings.


    INGREDIENTS:
    1/4 cup ground pork
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    2 tablespoons finely chopped carrots
    2 tablespoons finely chopped celery
    1 clove chopped fresh garlic
    2 1/2 tablespoons fresh bread crumbs
    ground black pepper to taste
    8 quail, cleaned and split lengthwise
    1 tablespoon bacon drippings

    ---------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------

    DIRECTIONS:
    Preheat the oven broiler.
    In a bowl, mix the pork, parsley, carrots, celery, garlic, bread crumbs, and pepper.
    Arrange the quail in a baking dish. Separate the skin from the breast of each quail, and stuff with equal amounts of the stuffing mixture. Brush with bacon drippings.
    Broil the quail 7 minutes on each side in the preheated oven, or to a minimum internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C).

    Ingredients:
    Approx. 6 lbs. (hindquarter) venison or top sirloin (trimmed)
    1 cup Soy Sauce
    1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
    1 Tbsp. Liquid Smoke to taste (if using smoker, eliminate this)
    1 Tbsp. Vinegar (or wine vinegar)
    1 crushed Garlic clove (or powder) to taste
    ¼ teaspoon white pepper (optional)
    ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
    1 tablespoon Salt (or to taste)
    ¼ cup crushed Black Pepper (or to taste)
    several cloves (Be sure to remove them after marinating)

    In a large mixing bowl add all ingredients except the venison and salt. Proportionately dissolve salt into the marinade until you have the desired amount of salt for your liking. Place the brine into the refrigerator.

    Cut the venison into strips of 1/4" to 3/8” thick, width and length does not matter, but the more uniform the strips are, the better. Make sure you cut as much sinew and fat off as possible. Place the venison in the marinade and soak for at least 8 hours in the refrigerator.
    The most important part of making good jerky is the drying process. Place the strips onto a wire rack or dehydrator rack so that air can circulate around the meat. Sprinkle and pat down with some cracked black pepper to taste.

    Place the venison into dehydrator or a warm smoker. This can also be done in an oven; place the strips on a rack and place aluminum foil beneath to catch any drippings. Leave oven door barely cracked, and set temp on ~ 150 deg. Make sure the meat is spaced apart for good circulation. Dry for about 6-8 hours using at least 2 pans of mild smoke chips if in a smoker.
    Do not over-cook. The meat should be a little tender in the center, bending without breaking.

    Don't be afraid to make more than you think you need. I promise it will go quickly, especially if you have kids or friends around.

    I got the idea for this on a threaad started by canepole. Let this place be where you dump your best bunny recipes.

    Good hints:

    Soaking your wild game in Milk and spices before prepping it is wise. It takes a bit of gaminess out of the animal and with buttermilk, you also get it a bit more tender.

    As soon as you skin the animal, dig out the pellets with a dental pick or any small clean tool you can find. Pocket knives are juuuust fine. This will save you from forgetting, save the wife from having to do it when she preps the animal, and save your buddy's teeth at the table.

    Taking scissors with you into the field speeds the gutting process up, cools the animal faster, and saves space and weight in your carry pouch.

    Laying the rabbits in the snow when you get home till they're near frozen gets all the fleas and such offf of them OUTSIDE, instead of in your trash can.


    NOW---- on to the recipes. All of my recipes are meant for bone-in bunnies chopped into 7 or 8 pieces, or less if you jacked them up too bad with the gun.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rabbit and taters (from the original post)

    Soak it in milk with 3 or 4 cloves of crushed garlic and 2tsp of pepper for 20-30 minutes. The milk cuts the gaminess out.

    Take it out and give each piece a good shake, then dip in flour with pepper and salt in it, then egg, then fry till it is brown on both sides.

    Plop em into a 13x9 pan with sweet tater wedges and regular tater wedges and a splash of olive oil.

    Cover and bake 45 minutes at 350.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rabbit Cacciatore

    Soak it in milk with 3 or 4 cloves of crushed garlic and 2tsp of pepper for 20-30 minutes. The milk cuts the gaminess out.

    Take it out and give each piece a good shake, then dip in flour with pepper and salt in it, then egg, then fry till it is brown on both sides. You dont want to cook the rabboit all the way, you want to ccreate a crunchy crust on it.

    While you're frying the bunny, add medium sized slices of onion to the pan. Whjen the bunny is done, take it out and set the pieces aside. With the remaining oil and the onion still in the pan and the pan away from open flames, add 1/3 cup of chicken stock to the pan while it is hot, placing it on the burner and kicking the heat up to high- all the while mixing constantly to get all the fry bits and onion to lift from where it was seared onto the pan and suspend in the juice.

    When you've reduced the liquid by half threough evaporation, cut the heat and scoop it into a slow cooker. Add a chopped carrot and some celery, more onion, some chopped green olives, chopped calamata olives, and a jar of your favorite tomato based pasta sauce (I think olive and garlic is the best for this, but my old roommate liked it better with 3 cheese).

    place the rabbit on top of the mixture and put on the lid, setting the heat to low. After 1 hour you can eat it. after 2 hours you can eat it off the bone with a fork and forget that you are not in heaven.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Running Rabbit Pasta

    Named for the speedy prep and lack of work to make it work. This is one of the ways I prep the bunny if ive gone out with my buddies and it is getting misertable and all we have to show for it is one lousy rabbit. (yes Ive made this under these conditions more than a dozen times)

    Take the rabbit and cut it into 7 or 8 pieces, popping them into a 13x9 glass pan. Cover in spagehetti sauce, and top it with foil (shiny side down) and drop in the oven at 400-425 degrees for 50 minuts. At 35 minutes, yank the foil off the animal.

    While thats going, boil some mostaccioli, drizzle a lil olive oil on it to keep it from sticking, and add a lil asiago cheese to it for early flavor.

    When the bunny comes out, take a big bowl and put the pasta in it. Then take the bunny parts outta the sauce pan and put it on the pasta, then pour the sauce over the both of em, cover in asiago cheese and serve.
    Total time from cleaning the bunny to eating it ought to not be more than an hour and a half- enough time to start a fire in the woodstove and talk about better hunting days.

    Bunny Stuffed Tomatoes

    10 -12 Tomatoes
    1 1/2 lbs bunny burger
    2 tablespoons Sugar
    1 cup Butter
    1 finely chopped Onion
    1/2 cup Rice
    chopped Parsley
    and pepper Salt
    1/2 teaspoon (optional) Cinnamon
    Breadcrumbs

    Slice a piece from the top of each tomato and remove the pulp with a teaspoon. Sieve the pulp and set aside. Arrange tomatoes in a baking pan and sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon sugar into each one.
    Heat 1/2 cup butter in a frying pan and saute onion until soft. Add ground bunny and stir for a few minutes. Add rice, parsley, salt, pepper, cinnamon, and 1 cup tomato pulp. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Fill tomatoes, leaving room
    for the rice to swell and replace tops. Pour on remaining butter (melted) and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Pour 1 cup tomato pulp in the bottom of the pan; bake in moderate oven for about 1 1/2 hours.


    Note: You may stuff green peppers with the same stuffing and bake with the tomatoes. Or if youre feeling particularly liberal, roll the mix in boiled cabbage leaves, roll, cover in tomato sauce, and make bunny stuffed cabbages. That's Phil's Favorite. ROTFL

    Soak the ham for 2 to 24 hours in enough beer to cover it with cavonders or texas select of your choice. Then smoke it in a good mix of charcoal and hickory until done. That will depend on how big the ham and how hot the temp of the smoker. Every 1/2 hour use a brush dipped in more beer and seasoning.

    Or you can cook it in the oven with the same mix of seasonings at 350 until done. Using the same brush of beer and seasonings.

    Put ham in large container; cover with mixture of all remaining ingredients. (Can slice holes in meat so it can soak inside better, or pierce completely with fork.) Cover good; soak overnight or about 10 hours. Rotate often, about every 2 or 3 hours to marinate.

    Put on smoker and let smoke for 6 hours; turn and smoke 4 more hours or until tender.

    ~ 1 venison leg ham
    ~ 1 lb. bacon
    ~ 1 cup of white vinegar
    ~ 1 roasting bag



    Place the deer ham inside of roasting bag.

    Place strips of bacon over ham to completely cover.

    Pour vinegar over bacon that is placed on ham.

    Seal bag and cook at 350 degrees for about 2 hours. Time depends upon how rare or well you like your meat. Make sure internal temperature is at least 165 - 170 degrees.

    Serve and Enjoy!
