For most families the autumn season brings to mind images of fall foliage, wind kissed cheeks and football. However, in my house, fall brings with it the promise of camo patterns, ground blinds, and the endless pursuit of the big buck.

Congrats!!! Beautiful article, enjoyed it a lot. Cant wait to have my wife read it. It made me smile in joy several times. You are absolutely right on your statements about this beautiful tradition of hunting as a family. The recipe looks very good. Thank you very much for taking the time to write it. Really enjoyed it.
Welcome, glad to have you here. Lots of good folks and lots of good info. Enjoy.
Great article. Made Raindeer Balls last night. The entire family loved it including my picky daughter.

The recipe is at the bottom of the article....it's the name my girls have given to swedish meatballs made w/ venison. :0)
Sorry, I thought it was just another ricipe for Swedish meatballs but, I see ground venison is used so hence Raindeer balls...now I got it. Thanks.
Great read! You've described my family tradition to a tee except for one detail, my wife ventures out with me to the woods and enjoys first hand by harvesting her own deer! Thanks for sharing the recipe, we'll be trying it soon with our own venison!:D
