I don't add anything either. Coarse ground once through the grinder, make into patties, and maybe some seasoning as I'm frying 'em up.

I add some ground bacon to some of my venison then make into patties. Makes for easy bacon cheeseburgers.

The way I like it is straight ground venison with some beef fat ground into it. No beef just some beef fat. This way you get the venison flavor and the fat adds some moisture as lean (I remove ALL fat) venison van be a bit dry.

When we grind venison, we make some plain...some with bacon (the best for frying and grilling), and some with bacon, hot peppers, potatoes, cheese, etc (all ground together).

There is a lot of great combos!!

I grind two different batches, one just plain venison for chili, pasta sauce, etc. The other I add beef suet or just beef fat, as mentioned above it gives a little moisture without adding beef taste and works better for grilling burgers.

I dont like to buy burger at all throughout the year. So I try to make my venison go as far as possible. So I do mix a about 50% veni- 40% Lean Beef- 10 % ground pork.. This is fantastic for just about anything. My whole family loves it.

Bacon works great for venison burgers on the grill.

2 lbs ground venison

1 lb bacon (i use peppered)

1 pack of Lipton onion soup mix

run everything through the grinder. I use a patty press and make a bunch for freezing.

I sometimes add bacon (my favorite, about 20%) other times beef fat (10%). Like Dietz said, if I need to stretch it I will add some chuck to the mix.

Used to use pork but it doesn't seem to freeze as well.

Straight venison. I've never shot a big rutty buck and that might be the reason why wife, daughter and I have always found it delicious as burgers, meatloaf, spaghetti, whatever. 2 does have gone that route this year already.

I trim mine as lean as possibe. Then buy some fatty pork scrap,or fatback, trim it up a bit so it is mostly fatty meat and not a lot of the "other stuff". Then grind it about 80/20. My father likes his at 70/30.

Meaning if I have 2 deer and get about 40 lbs of scrap out of of each. I will have almost 100lbs of total grind after adding my pork. The 80/20 will make burger that is better than 90% lean.

I do soak my srap for a couple of days in the fridge or an ice bath, changing water a time or two, to pull as much blood as possible from the meat. Then grind twice. First with the coarse chop, then mix and grind again with the medium blades. And have NEVER had a complaint about my ground.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
