Letter Re: Meat Prices Soar While Deer Populations Explode

Hugh, Regarding the article on deer hunting and the taste of venison: The taste of venison is highly dependent on field handling, competent processing of the meat, as well as cooking technique, as the writer noted. It is also dependent on the sex and age of the animal; younger is better, does (female) are better. It is also dependent on the diet; I have heard that sage in the diet worsens the taste.

Hugh’s Quote of the Day:

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion.
