what do you want to know?
game cooking is not that sophisticated as most people think..

in most cases you can do it as you would do the farmed relative..

fair amount of experience with game. remember wild game is nearly fat free and either needs to be larded or cooked barely or long low and slow.

salt water and buttermilk soaks help tenderize and lessen gameness. Braise and fricasee over a mirepoix are great for game. wild rice is a natural accompaniment. red currant jelly is a great sweetener for pan gravies of game dishes (also very authentic dates back to colonial times.

check out Williamsburg VA (Christiana Campbell's tavern) Phila PA (City Tavern), for great recipes and methods. Also look into the variety of Brunswick stews using game etc.

enjoy!

There are some good Two Fat Ladies recipes that include game.

I believe that the logic behind some people cooking game animals less than domestically raised critters (even if they are the same species) is the belief that they are not as likely to be contaminated with Salmonella or E. Coli.

I am not a fan of answering a question by saying, "Google it", but in this case where there are so many possibilities - trying Googleing on the specific type of game you want, for example: "pheasant recipes" ... you'll find hundreds to choose from.

I think it is more b/c of the fact that it is so lean and will overcook if cooked as long as farmed animals.

if you have a good young game, there is no need to soak it.. that's just made for old animal...
