Neck or backbone broken in chunks, fat removed
2 cups venison broth
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 beef bouillon cube
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 tsp. salt
4 tsp. ice water

1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk

Place venison, water, celery, salt, pepper, and bouillon cube in pot; cover and boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours. Remove bones from pot, let cook, pick meat, and dice. Strain broth and set aside. Sift 1 cup flour with 1/2 tsp. salt in a bowl. Add shortening and work with hands until flour and shortening have blended. Add water and mix quickly.

Place dough on plate; cover with wax paper and refrigerate 15 minutes. Then roll out dough to make top crust for the pot pit. When finished preparing dough, melt 1/2 cup butter in a saucepan. Add 1/4 cup flour and stir until paste becomes almond colored. Stir in venison broth; add milk AFTER sauce thickens. Add vegetables, folding in gently, and put in casserole dish. Cover with pastry, brush with melted butter and bake at 425 degrees until crust is lightly browned.
