    Do they portion venison the same as cattle?

    Couple things I already have on my list are Osso Bucco, Middle Neck steaks, Heart & Liver. oh and marrow bones
    That sounds great! Here in Sweden we have all the game you can ask for: elk is my favorite, and it is abundant. The taste really says "wild in the forest" like nothing else. Elk is called the King of the Forest, for good reason. (If hunters wouldn't cull the elks moving down from the north every year, and the boars moving up from the south, they would soon multiply and take all the food from smaller game like deer, since they are very strong.) Elk, boar, deer, bear, transplanted Canada Geese ... maybe not boar and bear so much. Most of all I like elk and deer.

    I don't have a hunting license myself (yeah, you need a license), but my father does, and a friend does. There are 300,000 licensed hunters in Sweden, and who knows how many hunters up in Northland where they don't always care about such things - their hunting tradition is deeply entrenched since way back. (During my military service there was a guy from Northland who had been in his father's hunting team since he was twelve. Best marksman in the platoon, which was funny because he was very peaceful and mild.) So moving in the right circles you can always find a hunter. Get to know him and you can buy some huge chunks of meat during hunting season. There is really nothing like the taste of game.

    Plus, if you are dating and want to cook dinner for the girl, game beats everything.

    No venison is really fatty, its the nature of the beast, but if you ask for it untrimmed they wont remove the fat it has. Add fat when cooking; i like a bit of dripping. Ask for the liver too.

    Canada! Thank you for the geese!

    Canada Geese were introduced to Britain in the 1600s, and in 1927 two Canada Geese were brought to Sweden by a zoologist from a park in Holland. They have spread across the Nordic countries and make excellent game. Plus they are nice to look at, and their quacking when they fly is one of the most pleasant sounds in nature.

    Your welcome

    They used to land in out back yard (90 acre field) durring migration .
    you'd look out the window to see a sea of thousands of Canadian geese ( and our collie trying to herd them, )

    Okay, so thanks to this thread, I was driving along today and spotted a dead deer at the side of the road and I Sooooooo nearly stopped and went back for it. Only - A303 with practically non-existent hard shoulder is an accident magnet. Also no bags or knife in the car. Pity because it looked really fresh and was off the road and down the ditch as if it got knocked silly and expired while it was lying down.

    I'm not normally one for roadkill, though I've enjoyed the fruits of the local rally sections, but that seemed like such a waste, I think I may have to travel prepared in future.

    Deer is soooo lean, and the animals are sooo small, roasts cook up dry and baseball sized, and steaks/chops are 2 or 3 bites each. Hubby is a hunter, and we have all the venison ground into hamburger and made into sausage and pepperoni. It's so lean, our butcher adds pork fat when he grinds it. We do request larger cuts on bear, elk or moose if he's lucky enough to get one.

    Ive never had them come out dry.. Roast I cook in a Tangine , low heat long time.
    The steaks I had last night were pretty decent size, the butcher cut them thick so they were probably 200-250g each
