I have found no real comprehensive source of wild game recipes on the internet, so for the past eight years, I have been creating one here. It has taken some time to build, but there are almost 500 recipes in this collection so far, and I am not even close to being done. Browse around. And if you don’t find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to give me suggestions. I do take requests. Here are the categories I’ve developed over the years:
