and protect the balance of the species. Closed seasons provide the game the
opportunity to breed and mature.
The word venison refers to the meat of a deer, most commonly roe and red in
the UK. It is classed as game and can either be farm or park reared. Venison is
a red meat, similar to beef but leaner and with a slightly richer taste. It is
increasingly popular in the UK for its distinctive flavour and high protein
content, becoming widely available in supermarkets and butchers.
