View Full Version : Need a good pheasant recipe

My Dad is going pheasant hunting in early November. We will most likely have pheasant for Christmas dinner. Usually we just do it in a crock pot and have pheasant and gravy. I'm wondering if anyone has any other recipes? It might be fun to try something different this year.
