Our venison is a Royal Red Deer that's farm-raised on mountain ranches in New Zealand, the world leader in producing venison meat. Deer roam freely, feeding on the rich grasses of the mountain meadows, and are never fed artificial growth stimulants or antibiotics. Strict guidelines are followed for a superior product. Buffalo Bob's Wild Game Snack Sticks are a ready-to-eat, pepperoni-sausage product each weighing one ounce. Ground meat is mixed with seasonings, encased in an edible casing, and then slow-smoked over selected hardwoods. To ensure freshness all products are individually vacuum-sealed. 100% REAL venison, farm-raised and USDA Inspected.
