Unlike shore lunch for anglers, hunters far too often forgo eating what they kill in the field. They shouldn’t. A post-hunt, on-site celebration of preparing and eating wild game is satisfying — and easy to do if you prepare in advance. Before you depart on a hunt, find a large plastic storage container and fill it with pans, plates, utensils, a cutting board, spices, oil and other essentials. You’ll also need a small grill or camp stove. It’s also good to have a card table, although a tailgate is a fine substitute.
