Is raw venison safe?   seen some bad things lately about it online but it could be all false.

How are your experiences with raw venison?

If you are buying commercial venison from a meat retailer, ask to find out where it is from and how it is inspected at slaughter in your locality. An inspected animal doesn't insure everything, but it's part of the usual questions you should be asking where you buy your foods.

If you are getting a hunted animal, learn how to inspect it yourself, or make sure the hunter can answer your questions.

Some deer have been found with CWD prion disease, which is the deer version of mad cow disease. I haven't heard of any transmission to humans yet, but it's worth being aware of. Also, deer can have trichinosis, so inspect the meat carefully.
