The Case for Venison


So for the past 2 years we have enjoyed venison burger and steaks for well over half the year.  Venison is “beyond organic” in my opinion and when processed and cook correctly is far superior to beef.  Sometimes I ponder about all the GMO corn the deer around my area consume, but I’ll leave that for another day.  I know everyone doesn’t have the access to hunting areas.  Some live in large urban areas and even if they could travel outside to a rural area they might not have any connections to a landowner that will allow them to hunt.  There are public areas that allow hunting but I like to know who is hunting around me.  There are lots of limitations and I understand them.  But if you have an interest, have some type of access to land, and have access to a deer caliber firearm, deer hunting can be a very sustainable and healthy source of meat.
