Training My Dog To Shed Hunt – Year Two

By Mark Kenyon There are few things more exciting than coming over a rise and spotting that ivory sheen glistening in the sun. Across the field, tines sticking up high like a light house emerging from the sea – there it is. An antler. Not much can beat that rush as you first set eyes […]

Remember Forrest Gump’s pal Bubba explaining all the shrimp recipes during their funny scene in the movie, which ultimately led to Gump’s seafood restaurant?

We feel the same way about venison recipes! (But we’re not opening a restaurant.)

Braised VenisonGrilled venison, ground venison, jerky, chili, venison tacos … oh, so many ways to prepare meals and snacks from our success in the field. There certainly is no shortage of recipes, cookbooks and tips for preparing and cooking venison, either!

Each week we try to offer a good recipe with our “Foodie Friday” posts, along with a good cookbook we think might be a bonus for your kitchen or camp. Each post is tagged so you can do a quick search on our site, but we’ve made things easier now with a dedicated page to find all the recipes and stories.

The easy thing to do is just bookmark this link and then you’ll be able to check each week or whenever you want to find a recipe. Or you can go to our homepage and put your cursor on the “Articles” tab in the menu bar, then click on “Cooking Venison and Game” to find them.

Be sure to check our recipes provided by some great folks – wild game chef Scott Leysath, Stacy Harris,, Eric Fromm and Al Cambronne, and others – each week or whenever you need a good recipe!

And if you need a new cookbook, click on any of the authors listed above or go here to shop for one!

Primos Hunting Double Bull Qs3 Magnum Ground Swat Camo Chair

Primos Hunting Double Bull Qs3 Magnum Ground Swat Camo Chair

When you spend as much time in our ground blinds as we do, you eventually create the “best seat in the house” instead of trying to “make do” with some chair from a discount store. Standard chairs are apt to cut off blood flow on the back of your legs, leading to discomfort and cold feet. They also restrict mobility and don’t allow the range of motion that our QS3 Tri-Stool provides. Of course, we designed this tri-stool at the perfect height to see through all of our blind window openings.
