Deer meat, or venison as it is also known, should be frozen at temperatures of 0 degrees Fahrenheit for best results. Venison should be frozen within 3 to 5 days of refrigeration.
If the meat will be frozen for long periods of time it should be wrapped in heavy-duty plastic or aluminum wrap. If meat is not stored correctly it can develop freezer burn.
Uncooked deer meat can be safely stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.Learn more about Freezing Food
