When you choose to eat wild game, you are:

  • Making the healthy choice to eat meat from an animal that was free range, consumed a natural diet, and was never treated with hormones or antibiotics.
  • Helping to reduce the number of over-abundant deer in New York State.
  • Taking an active role in acknowledging where your food comes from.
