Just curious. Is it illegal to sell Deer Meat, whether Exotic like Axis or Native like WhiteTail ? Friends keep asking me to make them some Venison jerky or Venison Kababs and they are willing to pay for it. Anyone got any ideas? I aint selling to restaurants. Just curious.

have them give you the meat and charge for time and ingredients for the jerky, that would be legal.

give them the meat and just charge for the jerky making, charge a lot. grin

Have them help you and don't charge them Have them pay for anything you use to make it. Or it is like anything else if nobody turns you in it is not illegal. The only time you need to worry is if somebody gets sick.

I guess exotics are fine since they privately raised & non-native. Their meat can be sold

Exotics are livestock. That meat can be sold.
Whitetail or native game I believe are illegal.

I know there used to be a strong meat market industry use of fallow deer in the US and there are companies that harvest axis and other exotics in Texas and in Florida and sell the meat.

Exotics can be sold. But I think if you are selling it it would have to be inspected. I know they used to shoot excess exotics and had a USDA inspector in the trailer that they butchered them in. They also sold wild hog meat but it also was inspected.
