He has really been enjoying it and got his first this past year. Sadly that was the only one our family got as I didn’t make it out at all due to my wife and I having twins last year. This year we are definitely hoping to bag two or more. Might even head out rifle hunting as well.

If you are keen on storing complete proteins, storing an UNflavoured complete whey protein powder might be worth considering – most have at least a 5 year ‘life’ if not over heated – I’m still using a 2.5 year old bag that has sat on top of my fridge in my kitchen without any problems at all.

Thanks! We have a dehydrator on the way and venison jerky has always been one of my favorites. Looking forward to trying my had at it.

I had an odd thought today about canning venison and thought about adding an external fat to it when canning. Olive oil, coconut oil or even butter. Was going to look it up and see if anyone had done something like that.

I didn’t know that about the protein powder. I will have to look into it.
