I've had good luck roasting venison shanks in the moist heat achieved by using a roemmer topf and making a goulash type stew with a sour cream gravy from cubed venison. Bird breast should be good as cordon bleu or parmigiana.

Diced venison is just screaming to be made into stew!!
The roasting joint... cover it with your dry spices you prefer then lay fatty bacon all over it and roast!
Steaks are steaks...
Boar joint... I would consider making pulled pork BBQ!!!
Partridge, Pheasant, widgeon.. think chicken..

Diced rabbit.... hmmm.. any meat diced can make stew.. I would think about grinding it and mixing in with a little lamb and make rabbit/lamb burgers.

This "one" does NOT cook chicken to death, and neither does she cook game to death. That's up to the cook, not the recipe!

My go-to game book is John Ash's "American Game Cooking."

However, not all game sold in US is actually "wild." and that which is raised, will NOT be as gamy as that whuch has been hunted in the wild. You should know your source before deciding on your cooking methods, because that can make quite a difference in the method of cooking that's best for each cut.

You don't have to cook it to death, similar preparations for wild birds as you would for chicken work great. If you want to leave it a little on the rare side that is your choice. you asked, if you don't like the answers you do not need to reply in such a curt manor.

One of the BEST pheasant dishes I have eaten was a simple rotisserie of pheasant, just like you would do a chicken.. Lightly basted, it was delicious. I have also had fantastic fried quail. So tasty!!
Frankly if you don't want suggestions, don't ask.

you guys are something else......give me a recipe that will make me forget the year I had to cook deer steaks in a thousand different ways and pretend that I loved them because big game hunter hubby killed one at Christmas and we were so poor that I had to record when I bought bubble gum.. ....a thousand ways to die...to this day Bambi meat makes me gag......all kidding aside..........go with the basics.....I think that the most important detail in cooking wild game is to find a good marinade.........with Bambi it was olive oil and seasonings
