Venison in Charlotte

Does anyone know where to buy venison in Charlotte to take home and grill?

  1. You can contact Frontier Meats in Waxhaw, a processor that works with hunters, but I believe there are regulations on selling. However, they could explain what sources there are and perhaps would put in you touch with a hunter who has venison to share. Other than that, try talking to Bucky Frick at Reid's. If it's possible to order it, Bucky would know a source.

      I bought a venison tenderloin a couple of years ago at the Home Economist on South Blvd.
      My husband likes the wild taste of meat, can't understand why some say "if you cook it this way you can't even taste the wild flavor", so I decide to try this for his birthday. We were a bit disappointed because it was fairly bland in the wild sense, kind of tasted like beef. I assume that was because it was farm raised.
      Anyway, if you are really in a bind take a look there.
