How to make game sausage

Making game sausage. One night, I sat down to a nice Caribou steak. The meat was from a Caribou my brother-in-law shot on his latest hunting expedition in Seward, Alaska.

I remember how excited I was watching the Caribou meat cook on the grill.

The steaks were cut pretty thin so I didn’t have to stand outside for too long grilling in the winter cold.

With a baked potato, me and my father sat down to taste this Caribou steak, something we have never tasted before. Besides the steaks, we also had about 20 lbs of caribou ground meat in our freezer.

I took one bite of that steak and I thought,  ”man this meat is gamey”, but like a good solider, I never outwardly complained. But I was automatically thinking what could I do with the 20 lbs of ground caribou meat we had sitting in our freezer.

About half way through our steaks, I said, “Dad, I think we should make sausage out of the ground meat we have.”.  My father agreed.

We are pretty experienced at making sausage out of game meat, although this would be the first time we made Caribou sausage.
