This flavorful stew works well with a variety of wild game. The meat turns out to be very tender and the sauce is thick, with a nice pepper presence. We like the stew on the hot side, so season to your taste.
Use either venison or elk in this recipe, and you'll be pleased with the results! "My husband asks for these fajitas frequently," relates Daniell Rissinger of Dauphin, Pennsylvania. "He enjoys big-game hunting and usually comes home with an elk. To finish off the meal, we add some Mexican rice and corn bread."
I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. I started with a basic bread stuffing, then began adding different things from my cupboard. This is the recipe I came up with. The stuffing disappears long before the bird is gone!
For over 50 years, this elegant entree has graced my family's holiday table. The zesty stuffing with its nice nutty crunch complements the slices of moist duck, while the hint of orange in the gravy sets it apart.
Venison gives a pleasant change-of-pace flavor to this quick-to-fix pasta casserole. "Since my husband is an avid hunter, I'm always trying to find new ways to prepare ground venison," writes Donna Thomas from Bark River, Michigan. "Even those who usually don't care for the meat will like this hearty on-dish meal."
These meatballs are a savory blend of ground venison and pork sausage, with water chestnuts for crunch. "This is my husband's favorite venison recipe," says Geraldine Mennear of Mastic, New York. "Even my co-workers, who normally don't like game meat, enjoy it."
Until I met my husband, an avid hunter, I'd never cooked or eaten pheasant. I tried several different recipes before creating this one using our favorite ingredients.

Since we have avid hunters in our family. I will quite often prepare game. Once it's stuffed with apples and topped with a unique combination of sauces, this wild bird requires no basting and cooks up nice and moist.
Golden rabbit pieces covered in a savory herbed gravy make this a satisfying, stick-to-your-ribs main dish. One of my favorite herbs, tarragon, provides subtle flavor that goes so well with rabbit.
