                       Sportsman's Crock Pot Venison or Elk Stew

3 lbs. of venison or elk-cubed {if you do not have cubed, use ground }
1 cup of flour
1medium onion chopped
4 stalks of celery chopped
1/2 tsp. of powdered worcestershire sauce
salt to taste
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1/2 stick of margarine or butter or use non-sticking cooking spray
5 carrots -  chopped
2 green bell peppers - chopped
5 medium size potatoes  - chopped
3 cans of beef broth
pepper to taste
1 can of whole tomatoes
1/4 cup of cornstarch

Take venison or elk cubes and put them in a bowl and add salt and pepper to
taste. Take venison or elk cubes and coat with flour. { If you use ground
venison, do not coate with flour. } Using a skillet, add 1/2 stick of
margarine or butter or use non-sticking cooking spray and brown venison or
elk cubes under medium heat. Once venison or elk is browned, place venison
or elk cubes on a plate with paper towel to drain off any margarine. Now
take the browned venison or elk and put it into crock pot.. Add
carrots,onions,green bell peppers, celery, potatoes and whole tomatoes. Then
fill crock pot with beef broth { appox. 3 cans }. Add 1/2 tsp. of powdered
worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder and more salt and pepper to
taste. Now stir  mixture. Put the cover on the crock pot and cook on low
heat for 7 to 8 hours. Every two hours or so, it's a good idea to stop by
and stir your stew. About 3 hours into cooking, mix 1/4 cup of cornstarch
and 1/2 cup of beef broth in a separate bowel. Once mixed, add to the stew
and stir. This will thicken the stew mixture.

Fried Wild
    Duck, Goose, Turke

For some folkes, duck and goose, turkey breasts can have a distinct flavor
that can be a little to strong. And being that you want other's to enjoy,
what I do is this. Put duck or goose breasts in a pot of cold water and 1/2
cup of baking soda. Let it sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours and change
the water and the baking soda three times within this 24 hour period. What
happens is you remove as much blood as possible, and the baking soda, I
think simi-neutralizes any remaining digestive juices. I cannot prove this,
it just works. After soaking for this 24 hour period, be sure to rince. Now
you are ready to cook.

  Fried Wild

4 or more duck, goose turkey breasts { your choice }
1 cup of flour

First, let us prepare the batter. Mix flour and cornmeal  together and add
generous amounts of Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning and mix well. Now take
the duck, goose, turkey breasts and cut them into halves. Put breasts into a
bowl and salt and pepper, then coat them with worcestershire sauce. Now dip
each half breast into beaten egg mixture. Then coat well in cornmeal and
