Eating Bambi could cost you your life.<quoted text>
Rabbit and deer are my favorite. Turtle stew is good depending on who makes it. I don't have a recipe for that, as I have never made it. But a good friend of ours used to catch a snapping turtle every once in a while and cook up a batch of stew. Delicious. I don't like coon or possum, too "wild" tasting.
My husband, before we divorced, was a butcher and deer hunted. I have used venison in spaghetti sauce, chili, cube steak, sausage, chops, hamburger meat and lovely tender roasts. He also fished and we kept catfish year round in the freezer or fresh. We had four kids and that went a long way to feeding growing kids and it was very healthy. Along with the vegetables from the garden.
There is no cure for prion infection.
