My wife and kids love venison. They don't care if it had antlers, a red nose, or alien antenna on its head as long as they get some backstrap. :-)

I will agree with those who say that we pay a pretty high price per pound for the venison we get, but we shouldn't forget that venison isn't exactly any old meat so this has a bit of significance to me at least anyway. We would be paying a good piece of change if we bought farm raised venison also. Plus there is a certain satisfaction in knowing that we got the meat ourselves(from field to table), something that the majority of people these days would not know how to do.

I always hunt for meat. I would love to get a shot on a cow any day. Who cares about a big bull. If i want to get horns I could just pay to hunt in a fenced in area.

I was brought up hunting to survive. When I was a child we had some hard times, I sure dont miss onion sandwiches on day old bread! Now that Im grown up and am fortunate enough to have a decent job I still find myself hunting as a way of survival. If I shoot 2 deer we have enough meet for venison once a week. Last year I took over a dozen and none went to waste, not just for my household but other family members and friends as well. I learned young that if you kill it, you clean it and eat it. And my brother and I do just that.

I Love hunting for meat! I also enjoy consuming it, but I also enjoy trophy hunting and God has blessed me with many trophies.

I have yet to hunt in a fenced in area though

I battle cholesterol and venison and wild hog are a healthy choice. Wild hog has less cholesterol than chicken!
