Joined: 3/1/2006Just curious how often wild game was used.
Joined: 3/1/2006I have to say once a week. Sometimes twice.
Location: COI had my last two deer made entirely into breakfast sausage. My wife really likes deer sausage, so I make it for her every morning when I cook breakfast.
We have a freezer full of deer, elk, and bison meat. We don’t buy “store-bought” meat any longer.
We probably eat some wild game meat once or twice a week – in addition to the breakfast sausage.
It sure makes it more fun to go hunting if you know there is a great use for the meat.

Joined: 8/12/2007We usually eat it a few times a week, when the wife is not preggers or something. I used to eat a butterfly steaks on the george foreman every morning. We ate so much cube steak one year, I was glad to see it gone. I finally decided to get one or two deer processed a year and then do the others myself. I usually will cut into cubes for stew meat or cut to roast for the oven. Ill take the rib meat and side flaps for jerky. I just hate having to gut them and bury the remains.
Location: nyNothing beats a home made stew made out of tenderloin mmmm cooked in a crock pot all day with some carrots potato and sliced onion. little bit of pepper. lol iam hungry
Joined: 1/22/2011Twice a week. Sometimes more.I voted once a week, but sometimes more and sometimes less so it probably averages out. Sometimes I eat it once a week and then I might go a week or two and not have any and then suddenly eat it 3 times a week.[https://0347f78499dbffa2d06c-6b5498c811253e5f302167b9d7af9fdc.ssl.cf2.rackcdn]
Joined: 10/22/2007It probably averages out about once a week.
I do some flounder gigging too and that will feed us once about every two weeks. Would that be wild game?….you have to stick it.Mathews S2 / Copper John 4-pin / QAD HD LD / Worlds Best Strings / 808 Bowslings / Easton Bloodlines
Joined: 1/12/2009I burger mine and don’t buy any ground beef until it is gone. So I would have to say at least a couple times a week……………….but it is about gone. It is hard to get used to eating ground beef after eating deer burger for 3 or 4 months. My favorite has to be Taco soup with the deer burger
PS- No, I do not burger the back straps They usually don’t even make it to the freezer.PSE DNA.........PSE REVOlution.......Breathn built!
Joined: 11/19/2008I get a bunch of sausage made and a bunch ground. We rarely buy meat anymore. I live in a great fishing locale so between fish and venison we use very little other protien. I feel fortunate that my wife and family love wild game as much as I do. I love big horns but I am a meat hunter at heart.
Joined: 7/1/2010Family meal, at least once a week including left overs. I eat jerky at least once a day when I have a nice size batch.
Joined: 2/2/2007At least twice a week for me…unlesss i have jerky around then its every hour I just started making jerky out of the burger
gonna need a couple more deer next year
Location: AlbertaEvery day till sausage and jerky runs out than twice three times a week regular meals…we get lots of hamburger from an elk and a moose so chilies..with beans, tacos, lasagna, meatloaf etc are common
Joined: 4/22/2010too funny, taking a break from work and cut up a few pieces of venison sausage and sat down to read this thread. I shot a doe in early oct and one in late nov, other than making the sausage with the scrap we’re almost done with both"it's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most" - zac brown
