Personally I'll stick with the 300lbs on average of elk meat, and a hundred pounds or so of deer venison that had been put in my freezer annually for well over 30 years.(Elk for the last 10) A portion of it goes to the kids because they grew up on it and like it, prefer it over beef. We have bought one pound of ground beef in the 30 years the wife and I have been married. That was for a lady coming out for a burger fry that insisted she would not eat anything from the woods, only from a grocery store. A quick distraction and sleight of hand moved the patty she had her eyes on to another location. She got deer. Loved it. My apologies to cattle ranchers.
