Cold today, a little snow on the ground from last night, so a hearty venison stew and home made french bread cooked today.

My wife bought me "Quality Venison Cookbook" from Cabelas for X-Mas.  It has over 400 recipes.  We've cooked 3 so-far and they've been great.  Give it a try!

Just got done with 2 bowls of venison vegetable soup made this morning, cheese and crackers and a cold coors light.  Ran the beagles yesterday and today.  They ran continuous yesterday for 3 1/2 hours.  We got another 6-8" last night so today my female had problems with plowing through plus the 3 rabbits we jumped made one lap and headed unground.  Found a dead 2 1/2 yr old 8 point yesterday.  Its' been dead awhile but untouched.  My buddy's friend took the antlers for rattling.  Too bad it was wasted.  Had backstraps Wednesday, I cook them in butter and add a touch of red wine half way through.

It's been a wildgame week here, started out with pheasant last Saturday after a long successful day in the field. Monday we had fried rabbit from Sundays hunt, fixed the rest on Tuesday.  Ended the week with some deer chili, now that it's gone, I have dove breast thawing in the fridge also planning on fixing this weekends rabbits this week.

Yup, venison tacos, venison spaghetti, venison lasagna, venison chili........ Geez, what can't you use venison with? Maybe icecream I guess.

 
Sounds like Bubba Gumps Venison:
 
"Anyway, like I was sayin', venison is the fruit of the land. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sautee it. Dey's uh, venison-kabobs, venison creole, venison gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple venison, lemon venison, coconut venison, pepper venison, venison soup, venison stew, venison salad, venison and potatoes, venison burger, venison sandwich. That- that's about it."

some steaks cooked in butter with a little bit of vegetable oil (seems to hold more moisture in my experience) and mushrooms MMMMMMMM[:D] I also marinaded some in italian dressed but it was funky (this deer had its guts explode unfortunately, we saved what we could) so I gave it to the dog...never again, I think the dressing made it run right through him[:(] he usually loves venison!
Put me on a mountain, way back in the backwoods

Put me around a campfire cookin' something I just cleaned
