Venison vs. Beef

   How many of you shoot enough deer to feed your whole family for a year. Once I began to bow hunt, I haven't had to buy any beef. The only other meat I buy is chicken. Every once in a while I will buy some pork chops. I think this is the 12th year now that I haven't bought any beef. Anyone else out there that doesn't buy any beef?

The only meat that I buy from

The only meat that I buy from the store is the occasional package of brats.  I'm single so it doesn't take much venison to last me through the year, but I typically kill enough to get my parents and my brother through the year.  I personally prefer it over beef.

I generally use two deer per

I generally use two deer per year, including making sausage, burger and steaks. Any extra venison/deer I give to my daughter and her family. They use about five deer a year because they have three little kids who love venison.  I do buy chicken at the store and we generally buy a pig or two for pork, ham, sausage and bacon, which we butcher our selfs.

I haven't bought any beef for

I haven't bought any beef for over 4 years now.  But then that doesn't mean that I would turn down a nice jucy rib eye steak or some prime rib and I doubt that any of you would.  I'll eat beef for the same reason that I will dig into a elk steak, I enjoy the taste of it along with pork, chicken, and fish.  Not to mention rabbits, grouse, duck, and geese.
