Thanks for the updates Gert! I have been following your hunts and preparations and it looks like a great time to be had by all, especially the food! I have been experimenting cooking game meat in using early North American colonial recipes for the past few years and once a year we have an "18th century dinner" where everyone picks a specific dish common at the time to bring. Most are not so common today and have flavors unique to a bygone era. We make a fun night out of it. If you are interested in some early recipes that were common up to about 1900, check out "18th Century Cooking by Jas. townsend & Sons" on youtube. He has a plethora of period recipes you could try in an earthen oven of dutch oven while around your campfire! Keep your reports coming! I love reading them!
