hunt safe & eat well


Who Says Pheasant Isn’t Fine Dining? Not Us!

In South Dakota, we take our pheasant seriously. Finally, there’s a cookbook for people who feel the same – Brooster’s Dakota Cuisine Cookbook. If you’re a hunter (or you’re married to one) the recipes inside will transform pheasant into fine dining, guaranteed! Bruce and Kim Campbell share the secrets that have made their entertaining so successful, everything from recipes to advice on preparation to fun facts about the Dakota pheasant. And Bruce’s stories about growing up with a shotgun in hand, hunting pheasant since he was a boy, are sure to warm the heart of hunters everywhere. Whether you’re cooking for family and friends or entertaining on a grand scale, Brooster’s Dakota Cuisine Cookbook includes everything you need to know.


a note from bruce & kim

For many years we’ve enjoyed cooking and baking South Dakota’s wild game for our friends and family. After a hunt, our kitchen buzzes with activity and is filled with delicious aromas. We have experimented with literally hundreds of different flavors until we found our great-tasting combinations. As with many novice cooks, we didn’t write out our recipes on paper. One day someone asked for our Rooster Roll-Ups recipe(p. 35 of Broosters Dakota Cuisine Cookbook) , and we realized that almost every pheasant recipe we developed was not written down anywhere. So began our journey to write a cookbook. We wanted to leave a legacy of wonderful South Dakota pheasant recipes, as well as offer a "Dakota twist" by creating pheasant dishes with an international flavor. We hope that you will enjoy making all of the dishes in our collection of recipes as much as we have enjoyed creating them.

Good luck hunting and happy cooking!
