Hopefully, your freezers are full with deer meat as deer season is slowly coming to an end. I always wondered why wives of hunters would talk about the amount of time or money their husbands spent in the woods during hunting season to get their deer meat and accessories needed for hunting. Some seem annoyed and others seem delighted. Having a family with four kids, I actually encouraged my husband to begin hunting. I knew in the long run this would save us money. He didn’t seem disappointed at all by my encouragement. He loves to spend time in the woods. So, in the last two years since he has started hunting deer, it has been a wonderful way to save money to feed our family. Now, my kids cannot tell the difference between ground deer or ground beef when supper is served.
Since, I am new to the venison world of cooking, there are a few recipes that I have come to love and have become family favorites! However, the problem is there is only so many things you can cook with deer meat before you run out of ideas. There is always the usual spaghetti, meatloaf, and tacos. However, if you are like me, you go out searching for new recipes. I’ve learned that there are many wives of deer hunters that have created wonderful recipes throughout the years of their husbands hunting!
Over the next several weeks, I will feature one deer recipe that is our family favorite! So, stay tuned, because you won’t want to miss this! For those of you who do not hunt deer, that’s ok! Every recipe that will be featured in Resident Press can be substituted with beef and some can be even substituted with chicken!
Here is a line up of the list of recipes for you to look forward to:
- Poor Boy’s Pizza
- Crockpot Tacos
- Deer Balls
