In the Wild with Greg Wagner


MUST-TRY, HEALTHY, TASTY GROUND VENISON BURGER RECIPE by Greg Wagner

This is a must-try, healthy, tasty recipe for those of you who have or will have ground venison in the frig or freezer this fall or winter. It’s actually a healthy twist on an older recipe in my file. Even non-hunters and non-wild game meat eaters visiting the Wagner abode have thoroughly enjoyed this recipe! It serves eight people. Bon appetite! See you out there, grill-side! By the way, if you would like to receive or donate some venison, don’t forget about our Nebraska Deer Exchange Program here: http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/hunting/programs/deerexchange/
