There is no shortage of days officially recognizing food in the United States. There is National Hot Dog Day, National Fried Chicken Day, National Margarita Day, National Kreme Filled Donut Day, and the list goes on and on. But there is no national day commemorating the one protein-packed, heart-healthy renewable resource that is deeply rooted within our American outdoor tradition — Venison.

“By establishing a National Venison Day, the deer farming and hunting industries will have an annual platform to educate the public about the health benefits of venison and how hunting is part of our American heritage, dating back to the first Thanksgiving,” says John Meng, host of the soon-to-relaunch Outdoor Patriot Podcast. “Our goal is to create a grassroots campaign to establish National Venison Day and officially commemorate the significant impact that deer and the venison they yield have had on our society and our American outdoor traditions.”

We invite all deer enthusiasts to sign the petition.
