The Annual Wild Game Cook Off is coming up on May 3 at the Ridge View Winery in Mt. Sterling, Illinois. They will be cooking things like Squirrel in a crock pot, Beaver Burgers, Elk Roast, Turtle Stew, Deer Sausage, and God knows what else. It got me to thinking about the pioneer days when people actually ate those foods on a daily basis. They did it for survival.
