Where to buy venison in GA?

I do not believe it is legal to buy and sell venison in this state.
You can however buy buffalo at a little marker down by Dames
Ferry. It's only a hop skip and jump from Atlanta.

Actually, you can buy venison in Georgia, it's farmed raised New Zealand venison.

It's on the winter menu of some of the tony restaurants in Atlanta.

You can get it at some custom butchers. I believe that Alton Brown purchased some on one of his episodes.

This place advertises that they have farm raised venison.

Douglasville Retail Meat and Smokehouse

This may be the place Alton Brown did business with, seems to me the name is familiar and according to one review, it sells venison:

There was a place in Marietta at one time that sold it, too....I can't recall the name of it though.

it is illegal to sell unfarmed venison in ga, you ca however go to a processer and get unclaimed venison for the price of processing.

also custom butcher shops can often order any meat you choose, one in lawrenceville (called the meat man, i think) used to order elk for me to make jerky with.

i know for a fact you can buy venison at the Dekalb County Farmers Market, Chucks World Meats, and any processor that has an unclaimed deer....we use to do that when we wanted to a ground out a whole deer for sausage

Unclaimed deer from processors, you pay the processing fee, the only problem with that is, you don't know the condition of the deer before it was processed and you don't get to get it done up like you like it, you get what is on hand.

Dekalb Farmers Market. I believe it's "red deer". If you want whitetail, I think you have to get it from hunter friends.
