Many people I know are completely overjoyed that deer season started on August 15th in our region of the state! Having been a hunter throughout my youth and young adulthood, and having cooked more venison creations than I can count, I truly hope that by the time the season ends on New Year’s Day, all the freezers of our deer hunters will be supplied to the brim. You see if you have venison on hand, you can use different spices and cooking techniques to transform it into anything from fast food to delicious dinner cuisine. — venison burgers or tacos, venison roast or tenderloin, etc.

My grandmother Sara taught me how to cook wild game when I was a teenager. Grandma used to cook venison every way you can think of – venison roasts, stews, country fried venison steaks and delicious meatloaf, as well as soups/chili made with ground venison. Now I don’t know what the status of your freezer was as of Monday, but in the coming days I hope you will consider trying the following recipes. NOTE: Please note that you can use beef, pork, chicken and/or turkey as a substitute if you prefer not to eat venison.
