Proper Venison Care

The following are some easy steps to take to ensure the quality of your kill. It's very important to take care of your harvest as soon as possible, especially in warm weather.

  • Field dress the carcass immediately after harvest.
  • Wash the body cavity with cold, clean water if possible. Carry a clean towel to wipe your hands and prevent cross contamination.
  • Spread the rib cage to cool the carcass more quickly. If the weather is quite warm, consider packing the carcass with clean ice.
  • Refrigerate the carcass if at all possible.
  • Use food quality plastic bag or buckets to store cut meats. Do not us dark-colored garbage bags as they may contain toxic resins and are not intended for food use.
  • Use a cooler filled with ice or dry ice to store cut meat.
  • In warm weather, it is important to register and process venison as soon as it is harvested. Venison will spoil if it hangs without refrigeration in warm weather.

The Eden Meat Market accepts only clean venison trimmings.

We do More Than Just Venison!

The Eden Meat Market accepts more than deer for processing. Many hunters have brought their prized Bear, Elk, Caribou or Moose in for processing.

Bird hunters also bring their kill in for us to smoke in our old-fashioned smoke houses. Pheasants, Turkeys, Geese and Ducks are the most common birds smoked.

If fishing is your pleasure, we would be more than happy to smoke your Salmon, Trout, Catfish or even Sturgeon. Fish prices are according to weight.
