I grew up in Maine and the family always ate deer, moose, and even bear. Like someone said... you have to know how to cook it correctly. My mom died when I was 10 so I never really learned how and now I live in the suburbs where people don't do any of it anyway BUT!!! I do remember eating it and liking it.

First thing we always eat from Deer is Back Strap thinly sliced , dipped in flour with a little black pepper and then fried...
I don't like dipping meat in flour, but the back strap (loin) is high quality.

Roast duck (1 pintail, 1 wood duck and 1 shoveler). I took a roasting dish, put a dusting of salt in the bottom, laid the duck breasts (cut off the keel, but with the legs attached) on the salt, skin side up. Sprinkled the breasts with freshly chopped garlic, a layer of green bell pepper slices, a layer of onion slices, a ring of potatoes (cut in half) and a pile of baby carrots on top. I poured red cooking wine on top to make sure it stayed moist.

Cooked at 200°F for two hours, 225°F for three and one-half hours and 300°F for one-half hour. Falls off the bone and you can't lift the taters with a fork, they'll fall off.

Served with a bottle of Cahors that was opened three hours early to allow it aerate.

I personally love wild game myself. Tried deer, elk, pheasant, goose, duck, rabbit, and possibly a few others I can't think of at the moment. While I have to admit, i don't have the backbone to hunt the game myself, I have friends and family who've been kind enough to share.

I guess people who like to hunt are often as enthusiastic to share as people who like to cook. I've never complained... :)

It's getting hard to find people that even cook from scratch these days, they want it preped in the box. I guess there's less thinking involved that way

It's the busy lives everyone leads. They are too busy running all the children to so many activities that they don't have time to breathe or simply read a book. ...... guess I had better not go there :)

Hope we get one this year, only 500 permits for the primitive weapons hunt and deer have been scarce the last couple of years or so...(If I get one I split with my brother same deal with him... and if we both get one we are set for awhile ;))

Pot luck at work today, so I am eating the leftovers. I made a mexican caserole as follows: In large roaster layer tortillas (oil the pan first), rice mixed with salsa, cheese, tortillas, can of refritos, taco seasoned ground beef, cheese, tortillas, green chili (I used my frozen stock but Stokes green chili with pork is OK), cheese (I like cheese) and a final layer of tortillas. Cover and cook at 350 for 45 minutes.

The key is in the layering. Don't make any one layer too thick. You can adjust spiciness to your audience by the salsa used, whether it gets put in the beans as well, and the brand of green chili. Stokes is the safest for gringos. They make it in chicken as well as pork.

I have a lot of Indian nationals at work, so I left out the ground beef for theirs, and substituted grilled chicken. I also used the vegetarian refritos and used the vegetarian green chili sauce. I actually prefer the taste of the vegetarian refritos as they are cleaner, if less traditional.
