Wild Game Soup

Hey everybody,

I'm college student who loves to hunt. Currently I am working on a project about a Wild Game Soup company for a marketing course.

I was hoping I could get some feedback from all of you on what you think about the idea of going into a grocery store or a local hunting store and seeing this stuff on the shelf. Their flavors are something like pheasant/rice soup, venison stew, gator gumbo and a few others.

My question is would any of you purchase this, and would you purchase it if it had a $5 price?

Also, what would make this appealing to you, and where would you prefer to buy it at?

Other comments are welcome too.

Thanks for any help it is much appreciated.

Wild Game Soup

Welcome to BGH wildgamefood.

To answer your questions,.
would any of you purchase this, and would you purchase it if it had a $5 price?

Well $5 a can would certainly be cheaper that hunting it down myself !!!
I would probably not buy it unless it was something that I have not hunted or killed. Why buy venison stew when I have a freezer full of venison?

what would make this appealing to you, and where would you prefer to buy it at?

As I stated above, anything that I have not hunted or killed would mabe appeal to me. I would be more apt tp purchase from a local Hunting/Fishing supply store rather than a chain grocery store.
Having small "sampler" cans that are priced less than the $5 regular cans might tempt me to atleast try them.

Hope this helped some. Good Luck.

I agree with jtapia. If I want something like that, I would make it out of game that I kill myself. Something more Exotic, like the gator gumbo, I might buy once, just to try it but I do not see myself buying it on a regular basis, especially at $5 per can.

I probably would not buy it, primarily because the game used will not be wild. It will have to be farm raised, so to me that would be like farm raised salmon or trout. Just not the same.

I'm not a big canned soup fan, so would not buy soup at all. However if the pheasant came in something else, I might try. But that is the only game I may consider purchasing that is farm raised.

Thanks a lot for your responses. I appreciate it all, and have heard some great ideas.

The comment about having venison in the freezer is something my group was concerned about to. We thought about the possible solution of selling a dry mix that allowed for you to add your own meat. Is that something any of you would be interested in?

Also, the comment made about not liking soup. Would this be more appealing if it was positioned as a dinner, say it came in a box with noodles?

Another one of their flavors is Elk tips in Red Wine but that would be a few more dollars.

Again, Thanks for any comments. The more wild the comment the better, keep shooting them at me.

I may be "game" Big smile for a dry mix with the appropriate seasonings for specific game. It could include noodles or rice. It would also be more portable and appropriate for camping.

But I'll have to admit, I already use some mixes (like hamburger helper) made for beef for my game, so the flavors would have to be something more unique than what's available currently. A good stew mix might be nice too, just add potatoes and venison!

If you could come up with a good jerky marinaide (that tastes good with venison) and market it the right way. You might have something there.
