Cuisine on the Wild Side

My outdoorsman  has been working on his hunting schedules for the year.  The maps and hunting regs have been out and scoured, IM’s to his hunt buddies have been flying back and forth coordinating tags and days off, er…I mean sick days and the hunting gear catalogs are spread all over the coffee table.  What this means to me is some scouting trips with my guy, a full freezer and wild game on the dinner table.

This year the calendar is extremely full and it looks like it may be time to bring the second freezer out of storage and get it ready for this year’s hunts.  While he is prepping his journals, going through his gear and mapping his trails, I am researching recipes for every medium we have; oven, dutch oven, smoker, the grill and the saute pan.

I am only including two in this post so it isn’t so long that you won’t want to read it. :))  They are simple, yet delicious and please, tweak to taste and make the recipe uniquely your own.  As always, I encourage you to browse around on the site with the link provided and find more creative and tasty dishes.
