The Pennsylvania Game Commission's
Learn to Hunt progam is designed to help hunters of all ages get started. The online progam features many aspects of hunting. Participants will learn about game animal behavior, habitat preferences, choosing a firearm, preparing wild game meat for the table, and more. Webinars provide an opportunity to ask questions of biologists, game wardens, and experienced hunters during live events, while on-demand recordings and documents allow students to go at their own pace on their schedule.
The Game Commission has teamed up with Miss Allie’s Kitchen to provide resources for preparing and serving venison.
A free Cooking Venison 101 is available for download.
And Miss Allie has provided a series of videos of her preparing some of her favorite venison meals:
