I can normally tell you when my wife is preparing this meal before I even get into the house. For me, smelling the hot grease and tasting the tender and well-battered and seasoned meat sends me back to a time of wishing I was old enough to hunt with my grandpa.

You open your freezer with excitement to grab a package of back-strap. You cut open the package, and it looks like you just found a hundred year-old mummy buried in the arctic.

Here are two methods I use to prevent freezer burn and help hard-earned venison be just as pleasing one year from the harvest as it was the day I shot it.
