I asked the same question about Alaska & was told that It's not legal
to sell game meat to the public due to health concerns. You have to
personally know a hunter or take up hunting yourself.

At least in California, Aidelle's at one point (long
ago, unfortunately) sold venison sausage. One could
buy it at a normal grocery store.

I don't think that's true. I have seen game meat on the menu at several
restaurants. Sorry, I don't recall the details.

I've seen both frozen venison and fresh venison sausage for
sale in grocery stores in California, and numerous forms of
venison in restaurants in several states.

Two weeks ago we went to a wine dinner at "fire" at Shaker Square in
Cleveland, Ohio. One of the courses was venison.

There's a place on Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights, I think it's
called Henry's End, and it serves various kinds of game. I've never
been there, but it's supposed to be very good.

OK but I'm just saying what I've heard. I posted a message in groups
on Alaska, before going there, asking for restaurants that serve game:
such as bear, moose, caribou, musk ox, etc. One response was that it's
illegal for restaurants to serve meat shot in the wild since you don't
know what deseases they could be carrying. (Other say "That's not what
we Alaskans eat", citing hamburgers and pizza as their regular fare.)
The only wild game they can serve is the fish caught in their waters.
On visiting Alaska I found no restaurant anywhere serving any other
kind of game. I've seen reindeer sausages in some stores but that's
from reindeer domestically raised & inspected by USDA.

Never been to the Buckhorn Exchange in Denver, have you? I was there a
couple of weeks ago. Had the night's special: elk and buffalo.

But those elks & buffaloes were domestically raised & their meat was
USDA inspected. What do their laws say about shooting something in the
wild & selling to the public?

Farm-raised elk and venison are wholly different from the
traditional variety.

I doubt you can in most states, and no sane restauranteur
would want to (CWD). I wouldn't, unless I knew the hunter
(as in had hunted with him), and knew the venison was not
from an area where CWD had shown up.

Speaking of, there's a venison roast in the oven now. Not
the farm-raised variety.
