RE: How long will deer meat stay good in the freezer?
It depends on the type of packaging u put your venison in.Did you put it infreezer paper, plasticwrap, ziplock bags, etc. If it has any room for air in it, it will form ice crystals & damage the meat. Meat can be frozen for quite a long time, but needs to remain at a constant temp. I use a vacuum sealer, & the company states that meat can be frozen up to 5 yrs. Now, I know this may be a little long, but the only things that may suffer is the quality of the meat. I also wrap in freezer paper to help prevent freezer burn. I just had some meat that I froze in 05, & it was just fine. There was no graying on the edges. It looked like the day I put it in the freezer.
