'Her contribution will go towards our on-going efforts to help improve the IVRFD in our Confession of a hunter In case you didn't years ago I ran know it, hunting across a recipe .... . [ for meatballs that ]  [ included an egg or I  two, and I tried it using elk burger. I was amazed. The gamey taste was completely gone! I have no idea what it does to the meat, but it works. Burgers Here are the basics of the "meatball" recipe. I suppose one egg per pound of burger is enough, but there's really no such thing as too much egg. Bread crumbs, in addition to the egg, help hold the burger mixture together. You can also use oatmeal or cracker crumbs if you don't have bread crumbs. Adding chopped onion is a must for me. I've also added bell peppers and/or chopped carrots. There's probably no limit to the things you could throw in. Of course plenty of salt and other seasonings (I like garlic or garlic powder) should go in, according to taste. I've tried just frying the burger loose, but it's not nearly as good as if you press it into flat patties and fry them until golden brown. Venison is a dry (low fat) meat, so use plenty of oil. I've even mixed oil with the burger. Mixing beef fat with the venison when it's ground is always a tasty addition. Some people put in pork fat.

Some hunters with an '' elk tag have been out looking for cow elk on non-Forest land with rifles for several weeks now. Bow season started on August 30 and will go through the end of September. I hate to admit it, but I don't like the taste of venison. There, I said it. I know there are many who love it; .in fact I've met people who prefer it to beef. (In case you're picky about terminology, I'm using  "venison" to refer to both deer and elk meat.) I killed by first elk, and my first deer, in 1964 (48 years ago) with a Winchester model 94 .30-.30 that I bought with money I made bucking hay bales that weighed more than I did. (The .30-.30 was used when I bought it, so it's probably a collector's item now.) I've put a lot of venison in the freezer over all these years; but it has always been a challenge to cook it so that it wasn't a chore to eat it. I figure there must be other people out there who love to hunt but don't necessarily love to eat the product of that hunting. So here are a couple things I've learned, for those of you who fit into that category with me. rm pretty sure that egg is a key ingredient. A few ability to protect the Valley and our neighbors. Tim Toomey, Fire Chief IVRFD The Adams County Record Obituary Winifred Carter November Winifred Koreen Hudson Carter, 88 of Council, passed away Thursday, September 6, 2012 at a local hospital. Her heart just gave out, and she died with an expression on her face that said, "I DID IT! She was born November 5, 1923 to Everett and Mildred Hudson. Winifred lived life to the fullest. She graduated from high school in Wheatland, Wyoming and attended college in Pasadena, and then NNU. She was a pastor's wife for 63 years and a schoolteacher for 24 of those years. She helped raise seven children, and never failed to mention the 8th 5, 1923 -- September 6, 2012 child who preceded her to heaven. She blessed everyone around her with a firm sense of propriety. Mom always knew how to do it the right way! She shared her knowledge selflessly and always made those around her just a little bit smarter. She often referred to herself as a people-person and wanted to make a difference in other's lives. There will be many who will never forget her influence and instruction. We will miss you mom. Your absence will change our lives. Winifred was preceded in death by her parents; her husband David Carter; her sister Herriett Merritt and a daughter Ruth Sheryl. She is survived by her seven children: David S. (Pam) Carter, Jonathan (Sharon) Carter, Carol Carter, Joanna (Vance) Harada, Grace (Mike) Norwood, Ben (Jennifer) Carter and Paul (Laura) Carter; 23 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren; three sisters-on-law, double cousins, nieces and nephews.

Steaks My favorite way to cook elk or deer steak is basically chicken-fried steak. I like to start with a fairly thin and/or small steak. I have a cubing attachment for my meat grinder, and I always cube steaks before I freeze them. If the steaks are not already cubed, make slices half way through the steak every quarter inch or so. Turn the steak over and cut similar slices half way through from the other side, but make the slices at about 90 degrees (at a right angle) to the slices on the other side. Even if you cut more than half way through on each side, it should still hold together. There are two schools of thought on how to apply flour and egg to the steak. One is to dip each side of the steak in egg and then in flour. The other method is to flour the steak, then egg it and then flour it again. I think it's easier to add seasoning to the flour than to add it later. Fry in plenty of oil. Another way to cook steaks is to slow cook them in .gravy in a crock-pot. It probably adds to the flavor and texture if you brown the steak slightly first. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice, etc. So there you have it: everything I know about cooking venison to make it not taste like venison. If you have a favorite "venison hater" recipe, how about sharing it with Record readers?
