My wife says that she has never had deer meat before and she curious about how it tastes. I was thinking that I could grill up some burgers for her and the kids, but I am not a hunter so I canít go out and get my own.

Is there any place in the L.A./Long Beach area where I can get a pound or so of ground venison?

Any thoughts, advice or comments are greatly appreciated.

Lots of places...

Hunter's Reserve - http://www.huntersreserve.com/component/option,com_frontpage/Itemid,38/

Fossil Farms - http://www.fossilfarmsostrich.com/

Shaffer Venison Farms - http://shafferfarms.com/

If you want Elk and/or Buffalo, there are even more good websites. I make buffalo jerky in 20-40 pound batches and buy a lot of meat from the Montana-Wyoming Buffalo Company in Butte (http://www.westernbuffalo.com/).

If you want highest quality Elk of Buffalo that is restaurant grade, go to the Jackson Hole Buffalo Meat Co. (http://www.buybuffalomeat.com/). Their stuff is cut real pretty, but you pay for it.

I've never stepped inside one....but I've been told a lot of Trader Joes sell some exotic meats; dude from work was kind 'nuff to bring a couple of Buffalo bugers in one time....

So short of shipping...I'd say try there or at least give a call.

Aside from what the other guys have said................Take up hunting! You'll never regret it. Even if you come back empty handed, being "out there" is awesome.

I've seen venison at Whole Foods from time to time.
