Favorite Foods...

So I'm sitting here looking at different recipes/food and kinds of stew you can make with squirrel meat and none of them seemed that appealing to me. So my question for you is: What is your favorite animal to hunt and eat and what kind of foods/Dinner meals do you make with your game?

Sorry if this doesn't seem shotgun related to you but a shotgun is 90% of what I hunt with and this shotgun forum is the only forum I'm on.

Number 1 for me is quail - the OTHER white meat; I prefer it over the drier pheasant (which seems to always need to be cooked with some form of mushroom soup or bacon to make it taste good)
After that, I like moose, elk, pronghorn, then chukar.

I shoot squirrels in my backyard that raid mt birdfeeders and leave them for the crows

When I lived on the Western Slope of CO, they used to paint "COW" on the sides of their cattle that were on the free range so the drunk Texans wouldn't always shoot them - didn't work though!

Hagh! Its always fun to search the web for tasty stew recipes for a winter camping trip. I am a big fan of the dutch oven, I have two, one for the main course and the second for desert, apple cobbler. Placement of the coals is the key to operation, along with keeping an eye on the interior. I tend to cook my stews and chili's much longer than what the recipe calls for, usually about three hours, as long as nothing was burned I get a lot of compliments. I then let the guys and gals clean everything up. Cooking has its rewards!

If you like pot pies, squirrel meat makes the best one, whether dark or light gravy. Just brown it first, then cut it to small chunks. I use frozen, store-bought crusts.
