Succulent quail with a snappy sauce makes an impressive entree. "This dish tastes wonderful over rice or toast points. Sometimes I'll use cinnamon toast to add delicate flavor," says Chris Sendelbach of Henry, Illinois.
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."
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.
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.
I learned creative ways to prepare game while cooking for hunters at a lodge in Alaska, where my husband was a guide. Everyone enjoyed this savory stir-fry. It looks as good as it tastes.

My husband is an avid hunter. Almost 55 years ago, his aunt gave us this recipe. The tender, flavorful meat combined with the sour cream and seasonings makes a wonderful dish. —Mary Calendine, Hiddenite, North Carolina
I discovered this recipe almost 20 years ago. Quail is a family favorite every fall when my husband goes hunting. It's an elegant meal, using only one skillet, so there's hardly any cleanup or fuss.
