Best Grilled Venison Burgers For Fourth Of July Festivities

A ton of folks will be taking vacation next week for the July 4 holidays, maybe even leaving this weekend for a super-long break of summer fun at the beach or mountains.


Whether you’re using venison or beef, a great grilled burger is a July 4 holiday tradition!

Summer means grilling, and grilling means burgers. They’re easy to make and fun to eat. Plus, if you still have some ground venison in the freezer from the last deer season, you can whip up something that will get you in the mood for bow season in a few months.

As much as we love tenderloins, backstraps, roasts and pulled venison sandwiches, knocking out some burgers is All-American at its best. Here’s a good one from OldWoodFireGrill.com that you might like.

Fire up the grill and give these a try.

Italian Sausage Burgers
Submitted by D&DH reader Lowell Nudd in our popular “We Kill It, We Grill It” cookbook

10 lbs venison Italian sausage
2 oz salt
1/2 oz black pepper
1/2 oz red pepper
1 1/2 oz fennel seed

Grind venison once through medium plate (on the grinder). Mix salt, black pepper, red pepper and fennel seed. Add to venison and mix all ingredients by hand. Make into softball-sized balls (about 1 pound each) and put into freezer bags. Each bag makes four patties. Cook on a grill until done, without overcooking. Serve as hamburgers or chopped steaks.

Here’s a super burger recipe we love from noted wild game chef Scott Leysath in his “Better Venison” cookbook:

Venison Bleu Cheese Burgers are great!

Venison Bleu Cheese Burgers are great!

Venison Bleu Cheese Burger
1 1/2 pounds ground venison
2 tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 cups mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
2 tbsp bread crumbs
Salt and pepper
4 burger buns
4 lettuce leaves
4 slices tomato

Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent. Stir in mushrooms and sauté until soft. Transfer to a medium bowl and allow to cool.

Add ground venison, blue cheese, bread crumbs, salt and pepper and mix well with your hands to blend. Form into 4 large patties. Grill, pan-fry or broil patties until browned. Add to bun with lettuce, tomato and your choice of other condiments.

Check out these side dishes to go along with those burgers, too.

SeriousEats.com featured a cool recipe for spicy coleslaw from Rebecca Lang, author of “Around the Southern Table.” Sounds great, with enough of a spicy flavor without being too “mayonaisey.”

Remember, too, if you’re eating foods prepared with eggs or mayo, get ‘em back in the refrigerator instead of leaving them in the hot sun. They can spoil and no one wants to be sick on a holiday or vacation.

Bon Appetit says these brownies are the best you’ll ever have and are easy to make. Looks great. Nothing like a good brownie and ice cream, maybe with some apple pie later on, for a holiday treat.




Heading to the cabin, beach or campground for the holidays? Maybe you’re going to the beach for a few days of fishing with the guys and plan to bring home some seafood? Whatever you’re doing, this Icey-Tek 70-quart cooler probably will be the last cooler you’ll ever need to buy. It’s designed with great insulating capabilities and airtight seals on the lid, which help keep whatever’s inside colder for longer periods of time. The lids are lockable, and two drain plugs (also with airtight gaskets) make cleanups a breeze. This is a super cooler at a great price. BUY IT HERE NOW

Friday Morning Mashup 6/28/13

 By Mark Kenyon There are few things as enjoyable in life as grilling a venison steak (click here for some venison grilling tricks) on the front porch, sipping a cold beverage, and watching deer feed in the field in front of you. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to do just that on many…

Second Amendment Foundation Shining A Light On Bloomberg’s Gun-Control Group

The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request with the City of New York for all records relating to Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, after newspaper allegations that city resources have been used for MAIG’s gun control efforts.

SAF is being joined in the request by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and Tom Gresham, host of the nationally-syndicated “Gun Talk.”

“It was bad enough to learn via CBS News that the MAIG website was being hosted on a city-owned server, and administered by city employees,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, “but it also appears that a special counselor in the mayor’s office was sent to lobby in Nevada on behalf of MAIG’s gun control agenda.”

The New York Post and Politico published reports that Mayor Bloomberg sent Christopher Kocher to Nevada, and that in an apparent attempt to conceal who he worked for, Kocher “scrubbed his City Hall e-mail address from the state of Nevada lobbying-registration Web site early this month.”

“The public has a right to know what’s been going on between Bloomberg, the city and MAIG,” Gottlieb explained. “Gun control is Bloomberg’s pet peeve, and he’s been pushing an anti-gun agenda since sending so-called private investigators on a sting operation to gun shops all over the country, which got him in trouble with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.”

“There certainly appears to be a serious problem in Bloomberg’s administration,” Gresham added. “Evidently, the mayor and his staff have a gross misunderstanding of how the taxpayers’ money should be spent, and that should not include sending New York employees around the country to lobby for Bloomberg’s pet projects.”

The request was filed by SAF Special Projects Director Philip Watson, for the following information:

1. All electronic records related to Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the website MayorsAgainstIllegalGuns.org, including, but not limited to:
a. All electronic files saved on city servers
b. All Emails to or from users at the domain MayorsAgainstIllegalGuns.org
c. All current and former employees, officials, outside contractors, and volunteers with access to the website MayorsAgainstIllegalGuns.org
d. All current and former Email users and usernames that have had access to send or receive Email from @MayorsAgainstIllegalGuns.org

2. Any and all records related to Mayors Against Illegal Guns electronic files, including, but not limited to:
a. Emails
b. Any written documents
c. Any records describing processes for cooperation with this group
d. Any records describing how received communications with this group are processed
e. All employee pay or overtime related to cooperation or time spent with this group
f. Official names, titles, and contact information of all employees, officials, outside contractors, and volunteers involved with domain hosting, creation, maintenance, and communication for MayorsAgainstIllegalGuns.org
g. All costs incurred by the City of New York for creation, maintenance, domain hosting, and communication for MayorsAgainstIllegalGuns.org

3. Any and all records of communication since January 1, 2002 between any city official, employee, or volunteer and any gun control advocacy organization, including, but not limited to:
a. Mayors Against Illegal Guns
b. Demand A Plan
c. Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
d. Center for Gun Policy and Research
e. Ceasefire
f. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
g. Coalition to Stop Gun Violence
h. Joyce Foundation
i. Violence Policy Center
j. Legal Community Against Violence
k. Million Mom March

“The man is obsessed,” Gottlieb continued, “and if he’s spent so much as a dime of public money on what amounts to a private crusade, Mayor Bloomberg needs to be held accountable for that.”

Gottlieb has called on New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to launch a full-scale investigation into the mayor’s potential misuse of public resources for his own private war on gun owners. He renewed that call today.

“If Eric Schneiderman won’t investigate Bloomberg for possible misuse of public funds,” Gottlieb said, “we will. The mayor has been acting increasingly like a self-appointed monarch, but this still the United States, not Bloomberg’s personal fiefdom.”

Gun Fight Friday: Remington 700 vs Kimber 8400 Montana

Last week the Savage 99 in .300 Savage narrowly edged out the .30/06 Remington 760 in a battle between two classics of the eastern deer woods. This week we go West for another good matchup: a pair of bolt actions for the mountains—one old-school rifle, the other totally 21st century.

Steve Huey’s Remington 700

The rifle started out life as a Remington 700 Classic, made in 1988, with a straight-comb stock and hooded front sight with rear ramp from the factory. I was shopping for a replacement for an ill-tempered .338 Winchester Magnum when I came upon this .35 Whelen. My requirements for an elk rifle were simple: shoot a heavy bullet for killing elk and have plenty of energy for a close-up defensive shot on big bears since I often hunted alone in Montana and Washington. Initially scoped with a Redfield Widefield 2-7X, it now wears a Leupold 3-9X40 with a heavy duplex reticle and CDS turret. I have taken quite a few elk and mule deer over the years with this rifle. My longest shot to date with this rifle was 308 measured yards on a bull elk. One shot and down. The 22-inch barrel and the attached Montana sling make it an easy carry in the timber or heavy brush. See you in elk country.”
Phil Traynor’s Kimber 8400

“This is my backcountry hunting rifle, a Kimber 8400 Montana in .325 WSM. It wears a Leupold VX-3 3.5-10×50 scope with a Boone & Crockett reticle. This rifle is light enough to carry on mountain backpack hunts, flat-shooting enough for long shots, and packs enough punch for an unplanned bear encounter. Stainless steel and Kevlar/carbon fiber may not be as pretty as fancy walnut and blued steel, but it is also a lot easier to take care of when you are in a tent at the end of the day. The only downside is that the .325 WSM is versatile enough for all North American big game, negating the “need” for a safe full of guns.”
Which of these rifles you would prefer depends a little on how you view a rifle: Do you want the most efficient tool for the often demanding chore of backcountry hunting, or do you prefer a rifle with some tradition behind it?

Don’t forget to send us photos and stories of your favorite guns to FSgunnuts@gmail.com to be featured in an upcoming Gun Fight Friday.
