Preparation is Key for that Perfect Venison Stew

Although you can find a gazillion recipes all across the Internet on how to prepare the best of the best venison stew (i.e., there are 25+ best ideas located on Pinterest at https://www.pinterest.com/explore/venison-stew/), what most people don’t realize is that when it comes to venison, the only way to create a delicious stew that takes out the ‘gamey’ taste of the venison and makes the meat tender and delicious begins with the preparation of the meat.

I like to carry two props at all times, just in case I hit something and ding the prop on my boat, I can easily change it out right on the water.
