Properly preparing venison treats for prime eats

It’s that wonderful time of the year when the whitetail rut is at hand. Many hunters already have venison in the freezer and tasty stews, soups, roasts, and countless other delights featuring deer meat are in the offing. Properly handled and prepared, venison is a wonderful and wonderfully healthy meat.
