Good answers. Let's not forget the poor sanitation of some meat packing that results in high counts of e.coli.

Wild game meat contains less cholesterol and fat than farm-raised animals, and that is better for your heart.

Don't forget the exercise.

Low cholesterol.

Fur and feathers (down) can keep you warm ... or at least pay for the fuel to put in the furnace.

Very Lean Meat... tastes great... NO ADDED HORMONES HGH, Steroids, sodium, They are free grazers, No animal by products are used in their food.

Agreed fur, feathers and down keep you warm and leather hides make great gloves, shoes and coats (Bucskins, Moccasins,Sinew sewing thread, let's not forget slings, holsters, belts, quivers, gun cases.

MLH is exactly right. the really good health benefit is getting out on your feet in the woods/water. i have never had a beg plate full of fish/venison that didn't take a little work.

Wild Game meat also has a significantly higher content of EPA (Eico Sapentaenoic Acid, a type of omega 3 fatty acid, which is a good type of oil, often referred to as fish oil) than domestic meat. EPA is thought to reduce the risk of developing atherosclerosis, one of the major causes of heart disease and stroke.
They are generally fewer calories, less saturated fat and significantly higher percentage of cholesterol-reducing polyunsaturated fatty acids makes Wild Game a heart-healthy choice!!!

Even my cardiologist says venison is good for me. Her usual advice on food is, "If it tastes good, spit it out, it's bad for you." She says she even eats it herself---I've never given her any because at the rates she charges she can hire somebody to get it for her.

Lean, natural, organic protein. I was in a fancy meat market a while back and had to laugh when I saw elk at $22 a pound because I had 200 pounds of it in the freezer. In Europe doctors prescribe rabbit as a very digestible source of protein for patients with digestive problems. My wife was on a diet and asked what fat-free lean meat she could get and I just smiled.

Low-cholesteral and squirell meat, yet fattening, has alot of protein. No growth hormones, either.
