Spinning this off of the Hunting thread on the hobbies board. 

Post up shit you've cooked lately. Venison, dove, squirrel, crocodile, what ever. Battle tested sausage recipes would be much appreciated.

Venison roast.

That right there? That looks good.

Meanwhile, from my Facebook feed earlier, friend in Colorado posted these -- that's just bacon on the outside. On the inside, though, these jalapeños are stuffed with roasted elk.

I have a spreadsheet for sausages that makes for a good baseline of what ingredients to use for different types. I'll see if I can figure out how to upload it.

Pheasant is insanely delicious.  It's also one of the most addictive forms of hunting I've ever participated in.  Friends took a trip to the panhandle and Kansas few years back.  Miles and miles of ground covered.  Watching those amazing dogs work.  Having a mild heart attack when a rooster flushes STRAIGHT UP only a few feet away, get knocked down, tuck a wing, and then F-ing run off.  We have quail on our place, but we lease to a dedicated group so I haven't gone at them in a few years.

Congratulations on the haul!  Where was this pic taken?

I live on the High Plains.  Pheasant season is a big deal out here, in fact the season starts tomorrow.  My favorite way to cook them is to chicken-fry the breasts.  I never could get much meat off of the legs.

With the hens mixed in, I assume that was a controlled shoot somewhere.  Baba, I hunted over German Shorthairs throughout jr. high, high school and college, and loved to watch them work birds with two or three inches of snow on the ground.  Without moisture, the wild birds out here make the dogs their bitches.  My dad would never let us shoot quail, as they're somewhat rare and he considered them special birds.  Starting to see more and more prairie chickens making a comeback in the last 10 years or so.

First time hunting pheasant was in the panhandle.  Snow/ice everywhere.  High school.  Giant plug of Levi Garett slopping around in my mouth.  Freezing cold.  Crappy gear.  Bird flushes within feet of me (no dogs).  Straight up.  Loud as all get out.  Scared me half to death.  Swallowed almost all the chew, turned green, spent the rest of the afternoon sulking in the truck.

I should mention that I cut into medallions first instead of trying to get the internal temperature just right on the entire, oblong section of backstrap.

Also I adjust a little bit for less salt.

This is nothing special, but i like it for a relatively healthy lunch.  

I steam a bunch of chopped squash, zucchini and mushrooms.  

Brown a bunch of ground venison.  Drain it.  Toss in a couple jars of Rao’s marinara sauce (best sauce in jar IMO).  Mix in veggies.  Serve with a little fresh Parmesan on top and I add Louisiana hot sauce.  I eat it several times a week for lunch.  Freezes well in single server size ziploc containers.

Never really ate any of this shit growing up but I do remember having dinner at a friends in high school and they made chicken fried deer steaks (not sure if it has a real name) but I remember it was really good. Need more friends that hunt

OK, update.  Made Friday. Hot damn it was good.  Had to substitute with beef tenderloin.  Daughter had her best friend over (Indian girl) who's parents don't eat beef.  Her and her siblings are a little more "Americanized" and they do.  They both said it was amazing.  High praise from a pair of silly little 11yr olds with picky palates.
