    Venison = Main Source of Protein?

    How many here, like myself, use venison as their primary source of protein (from red meat)?

    239 grams protein per pound....heck, hard to beat!!!!

    Jerky can be eaten at gym like protein bars!

    Jalepeno and Cheddar summer sausage for in between meal protein snacks!

    Chili, Stew, Steaks, Burgers...on and on!

    I love it!

    I try to put 2 to 3 deer in freezer every year (2 so far this year).

    Lean, good, tasty, protein-rich meat!!!! Mmmmmmm!

    my calculations put it at 147 g per pound for roasted venison. but yeah...I eat a good bit of it. I have 3 in the freezer...should get me through the year with that and chicken.

    Not sure how much protein is in venison but I have a doe and buck in the freezer. Archery season was good to me this year.

    Lots of cheddar and jalepino sausage, slim sticks, burger, and itialian sausage.

    I eat around 1 1/2 lbs of venison a day. Most everyone in my family (brothers, dad, uncles etc....) hunts but do not eat alot of the venison they kill so I'm lucky and get all I want most of the time. And yes, its a very good source of protein (bar none)......keep it up.

    I eat venison but I have to admit I prefer beef over it because I think venison has a "gamey" taste. Does anyone know what I mean by that and if so how do you prepare your venison to deal with that.

    Man, I love venison! I'm on a hunting lease in alabama (2 deer/day) but nothing beats going to the parents house in PA over Christmas and doing some muzzleloader hunting in the SNOW! Damn, that's the best!

    Unfortunately, I'm doing a year in Iraq and won't be doing any hunting this year.

    2 in the freezer, one tag left to fill.

    Bambi and her friends are all over our neighborhood eating our gardens but the local officials here in La La Land frown on gunfire in the city limits....so I opt for fresh ground buffalo at my local butcher. He also has seasonal deer and Elk meat. Too gamey for me. All 3 are a whole lot better for you than cow.

    I eat a lot of venison too and love it. Nothing better than backstrap on the grill imo.

    the best thing you can do is soak it or clean it in cold water...ie;make sure all the blood is gone. It should not have a gamey taste at all.You should also cook it fast ( if making steak ) or very slow in slow cooker. I make some great venison and my kids love it. If its a favorite of a 5 year old it must be good !

    I ma glad you did this post.I was wondering same thing. I make up a bunch, put it in my frifge and eat it w/ some eggs for a quick protein shot...If you want to get lean, you might back away from the cheddar sausage though!

    PS- I shot a 150 class 12 pt.bow season was 21o lbs - dressed. That was my cardio ...getting that pig out of the woods !

    Thought that it was illegal to buy, sell or trade in any deer species which are indigenous to the United States so how does your butcher do so legally (unless he imports from Europe or Australia)?

    no, there is no way to make your venison taste more like beef. Just as your chicken will never taste like pork.

    I consider Deer meat a great source of very lean protein. If it's been gutted and hauled out of the woods promptly, and cooked properly, it should never taste "gamey".

    I plan on "restocking" in the 1st and 3rd week of January. Right now I'm down to a little stew meat and ground for chili.....and possibly a shoulder to make into jerky next week.

    Venison does have its own taste but many factors go into how "gamey" it tastes. Age, sex, time of year, diet, how it's killed and how it is handled right after it's killed.

If its a favorite of a 5 year old it must be good !
    I know people who keep theirs in an ice and water mix for several days before freezing, changing the ice and water every day. That is too much work for me but I do soak it in ice water for a few hours before cooking or smoking.

    Yes, yes and yes.

    Just about anything you can make with other meats can be made with deer. Cooking times will vary and it's so lean it will cook "dryer" than beef or pork but it's great stuff!

    Your claim is 239g/454g=93% protein.

    Uncooked venison is actually 22% protein , cooked is 27%. (source:USDA)

    I am not a hunter but a friend who is, introduced me to venison and it is awesome! I also love alligator meat although I'm not a fan of rabbit, squirrel and especially duck (I don't care for the texture).

    I read an article this morning about cuy (roasted guinea pig), originating from South America, being the cheapest meat on the market and yet is very high in protein. In this economic climate, meat markets are considering introducing this to the American consumers.

    Cuy anyone?

    So far this hunting season I have killed and ate:

    One Deer (still have about half left)

    Several squirrels.

    Dozens of various Ducks.

    Four Geese.

    A couple Bunnies.

    Friend got a Bear. Steaks were good, not great but good.

    All that great food for the price of the tags. Plus getting to be out in nature with God.

    Not to mention GREAT cardio!

    The largest factor in how venison tastes is the diet of the deer. A deer that has been surviving on bark and pine needles will taste like s**t. But a deer living on corn, acorns, apples, etc will be yummy!

    I love rabbit/hare so I imagine Cuy is somewhat similar to hare but probably better , they are fatter than rabbits

    bring it on..
