Preparation Tips

Southern Venison Sausage

7 lb. lean venison
3 lb. pork fat
1/3 cup salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 T. sage
2 t. pepper
2 t. red pepper
Cut venison and fat into 1/2"cubes.  In a bowl mix
remaining Ingredients. Push through a meat
grinder.  Then mix with hands, thoroughly.  Shape
meat into patties and fry.  You can use any red
game meat in the place of venison.  However,
possum and coon meat do not work as well.





2lbs lean ground Venison 2Tbs Tender Quick (type of curring salt found at grocery) 1/4tsp Onion powder, 1/8tsp Garlic powder, 1-1/2tsp Liquid smoke, 1cup Water.  Combine all ingredients together well, and divide into 3-4 even amounts.  Shape into rolls and wrap with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate for 24 hours.  Unwrap and bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour on a broier type rack or pan (so that the grease can drip off).  Refrigerate and serve..    Be sure to freeze any sausage that is not going to be consumed within a few days.. (tip) Make sure that all utensills including your hands are cleaned well before making your sausage.



Marinate overnight in teriyaki sauce with 1-2 tsp olive oil, 1 lb venison stew, cut into 1-inch cubes.

Rinse venison, and dry. Brown in 2 tbsp olive oil. Remove from pan and keep warm.

Saute until transparent, adding extra oil if necessary, 1 large sweet onion, cut into 1-inch cubes. Add 1/2 pound of mushrooms and saute 2 minute more, then add venison.

Add 1/4 cup red wine, 2 medium to large carrots sliced into rounds. You may add 1-2 roughly chopped large tomatoes. Add 2 tbsp or more to taste sweet Hungarian paprika, 2 bay leaves, 1/4-1/2 tsp caraway seeds, freshly ground black pepper. Note: the Teriyaki Sauce adds some flavor and salt to the meat, so don't add salt until the end. Cover and simmer until meat is tender, adding more red wine or soup stock as required. The sauce may be thickened with beurre Maine - mix using a fork equal amounts (e.g., 1 tbsp) of flour and margarine or butter. Add to sauce a little at a time, whisking until the margarine/butter melts and the flour thickens the sauce. Correct the seasoning.

Serve with noodles or dumplings.

Frances Taylor

Ottawa, Canada


4 to 5 lbs venison ( I use steaks, you can use a roast)
5 bay leaves
5 Tablespoons black pepper ( yes tablespoons)
4 Tablespoons lemon juice
5 Tablespoons oregano
5 Whole cloves
salt to taste
Jar of Pepperoncini's

Put your venison in a crock pot or on the stove in a stock pot. Make
sure to remove any fat or tendons in the meat you use. Add enough water
to cover meat. Add all ingredients except pepperoncini's. I put my
spices except for the pepper and oregano in a tea leaf ball since you
have to retrieve the bay leaves and cloves before serving. Cover and
cook over low heat until meat starts to shred, usually about 6 to 8
hours depending on which cooking method that you chose, if you cook on
the stove be sure to check water level while cooking. When meat starts
to shred remove from pan and pull meat apart, do not throw out the
liquid. After shredding meat, return to the liquid and add
pepperoncini's, cook another 30 minutes. Serve on hoagie rolls. This can
be frozen in sandwich size portions and taken out as needed for quick
lunches or just to have on hand for unexpected company.
Even people who say they don't like deer like this recipe.

Great sight! My husband and I both hunt, so we hardly buy any meat from
stores. I have learned many different tricks and recipes for game over
the last 10 years. I will visit this sight often I have bookmarked it.


6-8 oz blue cheese crumbled

4 oz package sun dried tomatoes cut with scissors into small pieces

1/2 cup Italian flavored breadcrumbs

2 tbs olive oil

1 small minced onion

6 pieces cooked bacon crumbled

1 large or two smaller deer tenderloins

cut tender loins in 4 inch lengths, cut hole in center mix above ingredients and salt and pepper to taste bake until meat is as desired approx. 25 minutes either on grill or bake at 425.


1 # Venison -- Well trimmed (remove all fat)
1 Tablespoon oil
3 - 4 carrots peeled and sliced
3 potatoes scrubbed and chopped bite size
1 (or 2) medium STRONG white onions
1 12 oz can diced tomatoes ( I like to use either stewed or the Rotel
tomatoes with the green chilies in them)
1 package onion soup mix.
1 (or more to taste) garlic cloves minced
salt and pepper to taste (wait until right before serving)

Soak the venison overnite in a large bowl with 1 Tablespoon of baking soda.
The next morning dump the water and out and rinse very well.

Brown the meat

Put everything into a slow cooker ( any method of slow cooking works well -
Dutch oven, pot on stove with low heat, etc.). Add enough water (cold, hot
--- it doesn't really matter) to cover the ingredients over about 1/2 to 3/4
of an inch. Cover, put on low and let cook all day.

Right before serving, thicken juices with cornstarch and water (1 Tablespoon
Cornstarch to 1/4 cup of water) and salt and pepper to taste.

I have taken this to pot luck suppers and have had people who 'can't eat
venison' swear up down and sideways that this was beef stew.

Helen T. Wilcox


I make this recipe all the time, and everyone who tries it loves it and asks for the recipe. My fiance especially likes the corn beef hash I make with the leftovers.(just use any old hash recipe from any old cookbook).













I get the hankering for cheese steaks often and I do this with venison.

2 Venison Steaks / defatted and cleaned / cut into 3" long and 1/2 " thick strips

1 Pepper / cut into " country size " chunks

1 Lg Onion cut into " country size " chunks



1 Dash of Thyme

Swiss Cheese

Olive Oil

Mild Spaghetti Sauce ( prepared or homemade )

Rolls of ones preference ( I prefer a softer steak sandwich Roll )

Saute the venison, onion, and green pepper in olive oil. Add thyme, salt, and pepper to taste. Once sauteed toones liking, add the saute into a bun, add a reasonable amount of sauce on top of saute, and top off with the Swiss cheese. Place in oven and brown to ones taste.

Simple, but excellent way to enjoy venison.




· 4 antelope steaks (any size)

· 1/4 cup lemon pepper

· 1 table spoon garlic powder

· 1 table spoon salt

· lemon juice

· 4 paper towels for each steak

Soak the paper towels with lemon juice apply 2 on each side of the steak
and put in the fridge for 1/2 an hour. mix the seasons and sprinkle on the steak
each side. cook in a frying pan in between low and medium until browned on
each side.

I hope you enjoy

Preparation Tips

My husband hunted his first dove season a couple of months ago and brought
me about 30 dove (total) to learn how to cook really fast. I pride myself
on being a good cook so I turned my kitchen into a small laboratory and came
up with this recipe:


10 Dove breasts, skin removed
2 eggs
1/4 c. heavy or whipping cream
1-1/2 c. plain bread crumbs
2 packets Goya Sazon
2 tbls. garlic and herb seasoning (salt free made by schilling)
Salt & Pepper to taste (if necessary)
Vegetable Oil
Fry pan

In a small bowl, beat the eggs and heavy cream together until the
mixture is smooth. Add the dove breast and allow them to soak while you
prepare the rest of the recipe. In a shallow bowl (I use a pie plate),
combine the bread crumbs, Goya Sazon, and garlic and herb seasoning and mix
well, set aside. Pour enough oil into the fry pan to create a 1/4 to 1/2
inch thick layer in the pan. Place over medium heat until hot. In the
meantime, start dipping the breasts in the bread crumb mixture and coat
well. When the oil begins to swirl in the pan it is ready. Fry the breasts
about 2-3 minutes each side. The breasts will be medium to medium-rare and
probably a little bloody. Cook them any longer and they will come out dry
and chewy. Enjoy!!

Preparation Tips



Deep Fried Turkey, A Kansas Tradition!

                                What you need:

                                     Propane tank
                                     High/Low Cooker with a regulator control valve.
                                     The user controls the heat intensity. There are
                                     several different types on the market.
                                     Large Pot, at least 24 quart.
                                     Usually they come with the High/Low Cooker.
                                     High temperature thermometer. The type that I
                                     would recommend would be a Taylor jelly
                                     thermometer. It must have a clip on the paddle
                                     in order to attach to the pot. It must be able to
                                     read at least 400 degrees F.
                                     Six gallons of peanut oil or any type of oil of
                                     your choosing. You need to be careful of oils
                                     with a low flash point.
                                     Hypo syringe and needle.
                                     Proper protective wear: Gloves, long sleeve
                                     shirt and eye protection.

                                When you are preparing an area to cook this turkey, I
                                would recommend that you lay down cardboard or
                                some material on your garage floor to keep boiling oil
                                from staining your garage floor. Remember to cook
                                the turkey outside the house, preferably in the
                                garage. To determine the amount of oil needed, lower
                                the turkey into the pot and cover up to the leg
                                opening with water. Only cover the opening at the top
                                of the legs. Remove the turkey and measure the
                                amount of water. Use the same amount of oil in place
                                of the water when frying the turkey.

                                Now to the turkey:

                                Thaw the turkey completely or buy a fresh one from
                                your grocery store. Remove the giblets. Wash the
                                turkey and pat dry with paper towels. This is very
                                important if you put a turkey into boiling oil with water
                                on it, it will cause the oil to bubble rapidly and shoot
                                oil through the leg opening like a volcano. It will burn
                                you if you are not properly protected. You can inject
                                the turkey with whatever spices you desire. Place the
                                turkey on the frying rack with the legs facing up. Pour
                                the necessary amount of peanut oil into the pot. Light
                                your high/low cooker and heat the oil to 380 degrees
                                F.  When the oil is heated to 380 degrees F, lower the
                                turkey into the hot oil slowly. Make sure that you
                                have the proper protection on when doing this step. I
                                recommend wearing a long sleeved shirt, work gloves
                                and protective eye glasses. While cooking, hot oil will
                                spew up through the turkey's body like a fountain. Be
                                sure to use the lifting hook and lower it slowly.  The oil
                                temperature will drop to 350F when you insert the turkey.

                                Fry the turkey for about 3 1/2 minutes per pound of
                                turkey, keeping the temperature at 350 degrees F.
                                One sure way to insure that your turkey is done is by
                                checking the thigh joint for doneness. Most turkeys
                                have a wire holding their leg joints together. I use a
                                pair of dykes and cut the wire in order to check the
                                thigh joint for doneness. Cut into the thigh joint, pull it
                                back and look to see if it's done. If not, then cook the
                                turkey for about five more minutes.

                                The next step is to pull the turkey out slowly and set
                                it on a large cookie sheet or some sort of tray and
                                allow to drain. Then remove the turkey from the frying
                                rack using caution (it's still hot) and set on a platter.

                               Enjoy the juiciest turkey you ever ate!

Thanks for providing a forum for game recipies. I am an avid duck hunter and
some days divers (scaup, ringnecks, redheads) are all that's flying. They
are not quite as tasty, to my tastebuds, as most puddle ducks (mallards,
teal, etc.) but I've found a way to do them. I would be interested if anyone
has found a way to make ruddy ducks edible...

Diver Chili

3-4 diver breasts, cut into 1/4-1/2" cubes.

2 onions roughly chopped

6 cloves garlic minced
minced chili peppers to your taste (I usually use a couple jalpeños to keep
my non-hot food linking friends happy, but have had good success using one

2 cans stewed chopped tomatoes

2 cans beans (I like black beans).

sautee onions, garlic and divers in hot oil until onions are just clear.
Dump all ingredients into crock pot. Add a little fresh, chopped cilantro
and/or a spoonfull of cumin and coriander. Stir it all up set the crock pot
on low, go to work. Come home in the evening, put it in a bowl and enjoy.

Please mail me if you would like to get more recepies. there can be some
faults in the typing or spelling due to the fackt that english is not my best


Thank you for providing the recipes on the Internet! I get a little
tired of fixing the same things over and over, so these will be a
welcome change - I do have a great recipe to share - am originally from
Wyoming and used this sauce to cook pheasants in but when I moved to
Alaska it tastes great with spruce hens and ptarmigan!! :

3 - 4 birds ( or several breasts )
6 - 9 T Vermouth
2 - 3 cans mushroom soup

Cut up birds (like a chicken) or brown breasts in hot butter until
golden brown. Remove birds and save pan drippings. Combine mushroom
soup (no water) and Vermouth and salt/pepper to taste - stir until well
mixed. Place bird back into mixture and simmer for 2 hours covered.
mmmmmmmmm! (I use more Vermouth than the recipe calls for....) Is very
good and simple.

Thank you again!

I will try some of your recipes. My husband and son keep us full of game of all kinds. I will have to say that I am a bit leery sometimes, but yours sound down-to-earth and tasty. I found that this is our favorite pheasant recipe. It sounds crazy but is very tasty with noodles or rice as a side dish.

Sweet Creamy Pheasant

Breast of 4 pheasants (keep the other parts for soup)

2 onions diced finely

mushrooms sliced (as many as you like)


Sauté the onions, mushrooms in the butter til transparent

stir the following together

2 cups flour

paprika, salt and pepper to taste

Toss the meat into this mixture and coat well.

Sear the meat in oil just until brown. Add the meat to the vegetables and add 1 carton heavy whipping cream. Cover stirring often to prevent sticking until meat is done, about 20-30 minutes, The cream makes its own gravy.

I sometimes use cool-whip instead of whipping cream to reduce the calories.

My kids can't get enough of this. The more onions and mushrooms the better.

Preparation Tips

1 shoulder or ham roast.
fresh rosemary
fresh thyme
2teaspoons sage
white pepper
fresh garlic.

Trim fat from meat, and wash. Sliver garlic cloves, and lightly chop
rosemary and thyme together. Poke small slits in meat with paring knife,
and insert a garlic sliver and some of the thyme-rosemary mix. Put holes
about 2 inches apart over the whole roast. Then lightly wipe roast with
vegetable oil, and coat with remaining thyme-rosemary mix, sage, white
pepper, and salt. Roast at 350 on a rack in pan until meat is done, and
tender. Time depends on size of roast. Make a brown gravy using chicken
broth, and if drippings aren't scorched, add a small amount to gravy.



Preparation Tips



A raccoon (cleaned, etc.) cut into pieces; legs, ribs, etc. potatoes (new red are best)

carrots (cut into quarters/chunks)

onions (whole or chunked, depending on size)

bay leaf garlic clove (sliced)

whole pepper corns (6-10) (or you can cheat and use any of the 'prepared' Beef stew seasoning mixes)



salt/pepper to taste but don't salt the meat until after it has begun to cook water red wine (something you would drink--don't ever use a wine for cooking that isn't good enough for the table)  

Dredge meat in flour, brown in oil, add veggies, and other ingredients; use enough water/wine to mostly cover meat/veggies; simmer 1-2 hrs until meat falls off bone. serve w/ noffers  


2 cups self-rising flour

1/2 pint whipping cream

1 tablespoon sugar

  Mix all ingredients until a stiff dough forms (biscuit consistency), roll 1/2" thick, cut with ice-tea glass or at least a 2 1/2" biscuit cutter. place on ungreased baking sheet in 425 oven for 10-12 minutes until golden on top.   These are really biscuits but they're the only kind I can get to come out right... I'll make you a noffer you can't refuse!   In the summer time, add 1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring and another tablespoon sugar, roll a bit thinner and cut a little bigger...serve hot with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.

Hi! Found your site while surfing. I raise domestic rabbits- thought I'd share some of my fave recipes with you.

Grilled Italian Rabbit

1.5 to 3 lb. rabbit (the smaller the more tender)
bottle of creamy Italian dressing

Disjoint and pierce meat deeply. Place meat in bowl or Ziploc bag- pour dressing over meat. Marinate, refrigerated for 24-48 hours. Drain meat well and discard dressing. Add damp chunks of mesquite to cooking fire 5 min. before adding meat for a really delicious flavor. Meat is done when it just turns white at the bone- overcooking will toughen it.

Easy Crocked Bunny

2-5 lb. rabbit
Cream of Chicken & Mushroom soup
1/4 cup water, wine or beer
pkg of fresh whole button mushrooms

This is a no-wqtch, no-brainer. Stuff rabbit in a crockpot, add soup & liquid. Rinse and quarter mushrooms, put in pot. Come back in about 7 hours. Serve. Simple! (You can substitute tough meats like older rabbits, jackrabbits, or even an old stew hen. Cook s-l-o-w-l-y.)

By the way- when dressing small game look for white objects near the intestines (about the shape & size of a pea). These are tapeworm larvae. Remove em- and cook the meat very well (180 degrees)!

Rule of thumb- all internal organs should be smooth! Wrinkles, indentations, off-color areas, spots, and odd bumps are all signs of disease. If in doubt, throw it out.
