Hi, I’m Toni Bowen, Associate Broker of ERA Landmark Arrow Real Estate with my husband, Don Bowen. We’ve lived in the Madison Valley since 1993 and call it “home” -- but it feels more like “heaven.”
My husband and I go hunting to fill our freezers with delicious, healthy game meat. I’m asked so often for my wild game recipes, that I thought our website visitors might enjoy them.
For those of you who recoil at the idea of shooting Bambi, I want you to know that I used to feel the same way. Living here and learning about the balance of nature, cattle ranching and the conscientious wildlife management, I feel differently.
For many summers, I attended a “Wild Woman Camp” which is really called, “Becoming an Outdoors Woman,” put on by Fish, Wildlife and Parks. It’s a great program that teaches women “guy” stuff in the outdoors so that we can feel self reliant, independent and capable. I was taught to hunt by other women who honor the animals they hunt and show a reverence for the experience.
I hope you enjoy the recipes, even if you substitute the wild game with "cow."
