What to Do with Your Venison Meat After a Hunt

After a successful hunt, the question is always “what am I going to do with the venison meat?” There are plenty of options you can choose from when it comes to the use of the venison meat from your kill. Here are some great ideas for using the meat from your kill!

Venison meat from seasonal hunt

Venison Steaks

Venison steaks are one of the most popular choices. The inner loin cut makes for great, tender steaks that you can fire up on the grill. The meat is tender and tasty, so you don’t necessarily have to add many spices. Salt and pepper will suffice.

Backstraps are also some amazing cuts you can choose from to grill up at camp on the grill or over the fire.


Another great idea is to use your venison meat for making sausage. Especially for the holidays, sausage is a great meal to have at Christmas. The great thing about making sausage is you can mix meat like ground pork, which will increase the fat for juicier links. There are many deer sausage recipes you can look up to get different tasting meals.


This is especially a fun option. This makes a great snack for you on hikes, car rides, etc. This requires the process of marinating thin strips of meat with the flavor of your choice. This process is a little more complicated than the other two options, but it is definitely worth it in the end when you have plenty of treats and snacks for the family.
