Packers QB Brett Hundley Prepares Venison from 1st Deer

Awesome video clip came across my desk this morning. 

Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Hundley explains how he just took up bowhunting and harvested his first whitetail during the Packers bye week. Hundley not only bagged a deer with his Mathews bow, he took to the kitchen to prepare the fresh backstraps.

The Door County Daily News caught up with Hundley as he was cooking the venison from a 2-1/2-year-old doe:

“Me and my boy Jeff Janis, actually went out last night … and I shot my first deer! And look at where it’s at already,” he says while pointing to a frying pan filled with venison. 

Hundley goes on to say how he prefers to prepare his venison if with few ingredients. “I want to taste the animal, especially when you shoot the deer (yourself)… you want to taste the game.”

Hundley shares a deer hunting camp with fellow Packer Jeff Janis and former Packer (and University of Wisconsin standout) Jared Abbrederis.

Too cool. It is not only refreshing to see a newcomer embracing the deer hunting lifestyle, it’s admirable that someone of Hundley’s status is willing to share this special experience with the general public. Our camo hats are off to Mr. Hundley and his deer hunting teammates!
