Venison, as deer is commonly referred to once it goes from pasture to plate, adorns the tables of two kinds of people – those who hunt and those who know someone who hunts. Sure it does end up on a restaurant menu from time to time, but it doesn’t reach most of the population, which is a shame because there is plenty venison to go around.
