    The only game my wife will cook is ground deer. Anything else I'm on my own. Of course she doesn't eat anything besides deer either so I guess its not to bad.

    Sharkfin, good thing it ain't a problem. I can cook it too, one point of my question is almost "is there such a thing in the future as a hunter-but-not-a-cook?"

    One fellow I used to know said his first wife was no good, she "wouldn't even cook cornpone"

    I already do this. My wife has a hard time browning ground beef. She says the smell of cooking meat makes her sick. Maybe this is just a clever trick to get me to do it. I don't really mind. I'd prefer to cook my own burgers, steaks, pheasant, turkey, chicken, dove poppers, fish, etc.

    Jim in Mo, my wife could *definitely* cook squirrel but she has a bad reaction to the very notion. Her Grandfather was a duck hunter and that is really helping the situation, but like a lot of city folks just can't handle the idea of eating the "tree chickens".

    Even in the boonies, it is rare to find a woman who cleans the catch. It does happen occassionally but hasn't for me. I grew up with the you kill it you clean it credo and after about 40 years together, my beautiful wife still doesn't clean things.

    I hate going to restaurants because my beautiful wife can cook anything to perfection. She loves cooking wild game,but her rule is pretty simple. "you shoot it and you clean it and I'll do the rest". I guess that you've got to find a girl that has grow up the same way as you have. I've been married 37 years and we were born 6 miles away from each other. I'm a lucky, lucky man!

    My wife's rule is that she will prepare it, but as she says, it must already "look like meat." No fins, fur, or feathers, or she's not touching it.

    Elmer Fudd,
    Your blessed, if she can cook any wild game she can cook squirrel. Can she make homemade brown gravy, dumplings, or simmer potatoes and carrots with meat falling off the bone? She can do squirrel.

    Video didn't work? Well, same with me and an old girlfriend. I guess we are on our own.

    Reminds me of a story - I walked into a friend's kitchen and said, "Hi!" to his mom. She was fiddling with some furry things in the sink. I walked over out of curiosity. There were a dozen squirrel heads in the sink. She had a bloody head in one hand and a knife in the other. I looked at her, speechless. She said, "I take out the brains, pat them together and fry them up like burgers. Hey! You squirrel hunt. Bring the heads over the next time you go hunting." What could I say? "Sure thing!" Nope. They don't make many like her anymore.

    I remember hearing a girl in school saying that her brother had definitely done well fishing that morning, because she had seen the trout he had <b>left in the sink for her to clean.</b>

    My jaw nearly dropped because, while my mother would cook some stuff, I was always taught, "You kill it, you clean it."

    I'm afraid the hunter will have to clean and cook all game. I believe this because I am that hunter. My wife refuses to cook any game I bring home. My grandmother filets fish and cleans ducks, then cooks a wonderful meal with the game.As a child, my mother had to clean quail my grandfather brought home from a day in the field, but did'nt have to cook it. Now my wife refuses to participate at all. My only hope is to get her involved in hunting, then maybe she will come around. I have been working on her though! She loves to shoot turtles in the pond with a .22, hopefully I will get her out into the dove field this September, keep your fingers crossed!
