Here are some other sources of information on deer and elk venison and meat products.


There must be hundreds of cookbooks on the market dealing with how to cook and prepare venison. A good place to look would be at Amazon.com or Chapters.ca.

However, we recommend two cookbooks that we found particularly useful, and whose recipes we have posted here.

Here are some web sites that we found had good information and recipes on venison.

For venison producers

If you are a deer, elk or reindeer farmer/rancher who wishes to produce for the venison market, here are some articles and reports that you may find useful.

Also, here are two very good reports that have lots of useful information on what needs to done to develop a successful venison industry.

    Saskatchewan Specialty Livestock Marketing Study, done by Kaji Kado of PPD Technologies Inc. 1998. Somewhat dated but still the best report on the issues and challenges facing producers in developing meat markets. Contact Sask. Ag and Food.

    Marketing Plan, Canadian Bison Marketing Council, 2001. Although this report specifically looks at selling buffalo, much of the ideas and suggestions apply to marketing venison as well. (Adobe Acrobat Reader required).
