I'd try whatever you'd do for chicken. There's nothing special about cooking wild game. It just seems most like to try and be creative. You just might surprise yourself keeping it simple. I think the biggest problem with cooking wild game is that most of us tend to overcook it most of the time. Wild game is much leaner than domestic and with less fat it takes less time to cook.

Marinate in italian dressing and throw on a hot grill to sear both sides and then throw a slice of swiss and some cooked bacon on top and you've got a great sandwich or serve on bed of rice...I wish I had some pheasants left cuz now I'm hungry.

Thanks for the help guys but it was a little late smile well i ended up dipping each breast in some vegetable oil and then putting some salt and pepper on each side and threw them on the grill. They got nice and golden from the oil then i squirted some lemon juice over them and they turned out fantastic. Its almost time to get some more it wont be long redhooks

I Know you already ate your pheasant, I actually made some last night. Heres what I do.

2 pheasant breasts on the bottom of a 9" square glass baking dish. Cover the breasts with some thinly sliced smoked ham. Next cover the ham with deli sliced swiss cheese. Next mix 1 can of Cream of Chicken with a half can of water. Dump mixture over the works. Cover all this with I bag Stuffing, I use Savory herbs StoveTop. Drizzle 1/3 stick melted butter over ther stuffing. Bake for 45 minutes at 350. Its my wifes favortie way to eat Pheasant, if I could only shoot more birds. Enjoy.

I've been patiently awaiting the opener for this reason. I had a great opener, and made this for the wife and I last night. Man, that's good stuff. I went a little light on the ham and cheese, but I'll load it up good next time. Thanks for the great recipe.

Do you cook the stuffing first? Assumed you did, but from the recipe I wasn't sure.

Sounds like something different to try.

Thanks -- Vickie

No, I didn't cook the stuffing first. I dumped a bag of stuffing over the top and kind of squished it around into the cream of chicken soup. I only laid a thin layer of ham and cheese over the breasts, but will lay it on thick next time. I'll probably use a little more water and low sodium soup next time, as it was a little saltier than I like.

All in all a great recipe. My wife absolutely loved it.

    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
