isn't it technically illegal to sell venison? I would be interested in some too if anyone has extra.

I knew a college professor in Ohio who swore that he raised 4 kids on road kill. He drove the same roads and had to be in the classroom early enough that he would always find fresh killed meat that he could stash in a freezer in the biology dept during the day. Now that the nighttime temps around here are near or below freezing you should be able to cruise some backroads and just cut off a nice shank or two. Good luck

It's not legal to sell wild venison - the few restaurants that serve it have to use farm-raised, which is why it tends to be both rare & expensive on menus.
If you know of anyone that hunts, it's worth asking around. Some people who hunt mainly for sport will give it away so it isn't wasted, and others are sometimes willing to trade. We used to have a neighbor whose daughter raise beef cattle, and we'd trade venison, bear, and vegetables from the garden for beef.

I would not go with roadkill, because you don't know if the animal was sick, how long it's been laying there, or what may have ruptured inside of it and tainted the meat when it got hit. [not to mention the general "eww" factor]

If you drive the same road both ways every day you know if its fresh or not and as far as being sick you take that risk if you shoot one. I have read of some states that actually donate roadkill to charities, food centers, and homeless shelters (Alaska among them however Canada just stopped doing it for legal liability reasons). However, if the eww factor is too much for you I suggest you check with a butcher that advertises they will butcher game animals. They may be best able to put you in touch with some of their customers with excess meat they might want to "get rid of"--enjoy--Larry
