Field to Feast: 3 Easy Wild Game Recipes for the Weekend

When the weekend rolls around in autumn it's time to enjoy the downtime with easy wild game recipes for your family and friends.

Crack open a cold one, stoke the fire if it's cool enough, whip up some tasty meals and relax. It's the weekend and time to chill out for a while. Waterfowl seasons and autumn turkey seasons provide great variety to go along with big game glory species. It's a great time of the year.

Veteran outdoor writer Jim Casada and his wife, Ann, tested these recipes and others they published in Field to Feast, the Remington Cookbook in 2006. The 185-page book is packed with recipes for everything from venison, turkey, waterfowl, upland game and other tasty items such as elderberry jelly and black walnut cake. It also is illustrated with the incredibly wonderful artwork from the private collection of the Remington Arms Company.

Enjoy these recipes, and others to come this season, and find out below how to order your own Field to Feast cookbook.
