Great values on gourmet meats for 14 years. America's Largest Venison sales & Buffalo Meat Retailer!  Ranch-based, family-owned and operated.



Our Freezers are at about -15 degrees F.


Welcome to Venison USA, a unit of ElkUSA.com, America's largest Venison meat retailer.   We located in southwestern Colorado about 125 miles east of Durango at some 8000 feet in elevation.   We are literally surrounded by 10 to 12,000 foot peaks and have innumerable recreational opportunities and an abundance of wild game.  Our mountain valley along the headwaters of the Rio Grande River is a major draw for tourism and hunting.  Elk and mule deer are our most abundant nearby wild species, while elk and caribou are inside the farm fences  We love these mountains and are blessed to be able to raise and share our industry's prime venison bounty with you.

We source our game meat animals from dozens of states, from Idaho to Arizona on the west, and from Tennessee to Pennsylvania in the east.  For special cuts, inspected Canadian or New Zealand venison is sometimes used.  We maintain working relationships with some 16 USDA or State-inspected meat plants across the US, so as to get fully inspected, safe and wholesome venison products at all times of the year.  First and foremost, please remember that all our venison deer meat is derived from farm animals raised in unique, special farm environments that promote sustainability and an all-natural, wholesome venison character.  Nothing is shot in the wild. From hundreds of game ranches we regularly stock elk venison, fallow venison, red deer venison and the newly popular, whitetail venison.

Most exotic game meats and particularly venison, are very low in fat and cholesterol compared to beef.  Further, farmed venison animals are not treated with growth hormones ,steriods, nor chemicals. The following information is derived from Outdoor Life, August 1992, which had an excellent article written by Kathy Etling entitled "The Wild Diet".  The following chart showing how deer meat venison compares with tother meats, is derived from that article, the data of which was sourced from North Dakota State University and the USDA.

Comparison % of Good Fat vs. Bad Fat for Deer Venison Meats
Species Saturated (bad fat) %Fatty Acids
Polyunsaturated (good fat)
Beef 46.3 45.5 8.2
Mule Deer 48.0 31.8 20.2
Whitetail Deer 45.6 30.6 23.9

While some exotic game meats and venison meat have a higher percentage of so-called bad fat, they are superior in the good fat verses bad fat ratio. Most have a significantly LOWER total fat content as described below:

Nutrient Content of Deer Meat Venison
Species Protein % Fat % Cholesterol (mg/100g*) Calories (Kcal/100g*)
Beef (USDA choice) 22.0 6.5 72 180
Whitetail Deer 23.6 1.4 116 149
Mule Deer 23.7 1.3 107 145
Elk 22.8 .9 67 137
Moose 22.1 .5 71 130
Antelope 22.5 .9 112 144
Jackrabbit 21.9 2.4 131 153

Duck (domestic) 19.9 4.25 89 180

*100 grams equals about 3 1/2 ounces.   ** Not trimmed of fat before analysis.

In the above chart, all visible fat was trimmed before analysis. However, surveys show that carcasses of domesticated animals have 25 to 30 percent fat while the average fat content of wild game animals is only 4.3 percent. Not only is the quantity of fat lower in game, but the quantity is also healthier. Fat from wild game contains a much higher proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids-good fat- and is lower in saturated fat-bad fat.    Source: North Dakota State University

A search of the Web will find that Venison USA is by far the nation's value leader in Elk meat (or Elk Venison), Buffalo meat, Goat Meat, seafood, as well as, the several species of Deer meat, or domestic venison.  Importantly, Venison USA is currently (Nov, 2011) the nation's sole national source of Whitetail Venison via the Internet.  We sell only the highest-quality  venison steaks, jerky, roasts, venison stew meat and burgers, all made of delicious, lean & wholesome venison deer meat.  Low-fat taste treats you will not forget.

Venison is a fine grained, delicately textured game meat and is virtually fat-free.  Many of the venison deer meat cuts cook similarly to veal.  The low-fat nature of venison means that over cooking is taboo.   Slow cooking, keeping your deer venison steak rare to medium, plus adding extra moisture results in a deer steak that cant be beat for flavor and healthfulness.  BEWARE: Hot, fast frying of any venison cut is a recipe for tasteless shoe leather.  Unlike fatty beef, dry roasting venison will yield one dry roast with no flavor and worse palatability.
