canning ground buffalo meat

I have alot of ground buffalo meat from an actual buffalo that my father in law got on a hunting trip. I was wondering if it can be canned? I see many recipes on ground beef but none on ground buffalo. Would it be the same? I also like chili. Can you can chili or is it better to just make chili with the canned buffalo meat? Or some of both. Where do I find good recipes?

Yes, you can do it as with beef. It is leaner, and LOOSE PACK is important. Much better to make the chili with the canned meat.

I will be cooking the meat and was wondering if it is best to fill it with boiling water to the top or something else?

Thanks. It's so funny because I just ordered this magazine on Saturday. Can't wait to get it.
