Sunday Suppers: Calling All Hunters

Hunting season is upon us, which means we’ll be bartering with all our hunting friends. Greg has considered taking up hunting, but buying a gun, paying for safety classes and club memberships (public land can get crowded) all adds up. It’s also a pretty big time commitment. Coming by duck is harder than venison, since the yield is smaller. But wild-caught duck is a treat. Venison is wonderful too. So we’ll keep bribing friends, perhaps with meals like this.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    Great recipes! Our deer hunting season hasn’t started yet. Bow hunting now, but we don’t get to go until the first or second Friday of November. We only got a gratis this year. So I am hoping that Kevin gets one!!!! I used to get one too, along with his and our gratis. The deer population has been down so this year I guess I will be walking the trees! It’s good exercise! :D
    Getting short on summer sausage!!!! LOL Thank you! Used to raise pekin ducks, but got tired of it! Too much of a good thing!!! ;) That goes for my geese as well!

  6. Hmm…Arkansans do love hunting. Oh, well. Tasty looking dishes!

    This was a great round-up, Greg. One of these days I’m going to find a source for venison. Until then, I’ll just come over every now and again to drool a bit. :)

  8. The venison tenderloin looks amazing. I really enjoy elk tenderloin… have you tried it? Best – Shanna
