    Just last week I found a pound of ground deer that had been hidden in the bottom of the freezer for two years. It made one of the best meat loafs I've had in a while. It was stored in one of those tube thingies that you use with your grinder. This time of year is when I try to use up any venison left over from last season in preparation for the coming season.

    I use a vacuum sealer for all other cuts and have no trouble unless a package gets punctured from me rummaging around in the freezer.

      Nice to find some you didn't know you had! I've been known to deliberately bury a package of venison in hopes of forgetting it -- just in an effort to not go through it so fast -- but it never works.

        I've kept venison for 1yr (longest it ever lasts in my house). The guy that processed that deer for me is a pro-butcher during his day job, and he does excellent work. I always prefer his cuts and prep.

        He wrapped it up for me and I packed it in a freezer. I've thought about a vacuum sealer or a foil pouch. Either would be good.
