So, you went out and went hunting, and now you have a freezer full of fresh game.

If you’re stumped as to how to cook it, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has the solution.  The agency’s cookbook is chock full of recipes, ranging from easy venison meatballs to fried muskrat.

Learn to roast opossum. Find out how to make fricasseed raccoon. Even the pickiest eaters will find something they like.  The book’s recipes, which also include fish, shrimp and crabs, were submitted by Wildlife employees, former and current, and their families.

For additional recipes and resources on field dressing, processing game and caring for equipment, visit After the Hunt on
