For over 20 years  we have had Hunters Feast here in Windkeep, Outlands.  It
is all donated wild game.  Unless hunting was not successful :-)).  We have
had deer, elk, antelope, moose, buffalo, rabbit, chukkar, pheasant, goose,
duck, turkey, salmon, trout, bass, boar.  I have seen very sparse wild game
offerings elsewhere in kingdom.  If you would like the recipes, I will see
what I can do.
