Now, I normally don't participate in discussions and such, but I do have some food for thought on this topic. I'll make the argument that hunters use venison as a means of bartering all the time, on par with selling it.
Venison is exchanged for land access (giving a land owner meat for the privilege of hunting the land), help with butchering, to pay back for something or for a million other scenarios. Money is just an expression of time and labor used for bartering. So is venison. You put your time and labor into obtaining the venison, now you can use it to barter for anything. Except straight money.
If this doesn't sit well with you, there are plenty of people already profiting from the harvest of game. Outdoors retailers, butchers, grocery stores (you've got to buy ingredients for that venison stew), outdoors manufacturers and so on. Everyone is profiting except the hunter, who winds up producing venison for the aforementioned entities for free.
Or consider the fishing industry. There are recreational anglers and there are commercial anglers. Although the resource, fish, belongs to everyone, permits are granted to those who wish to sell their catch.
Food for thought. Or in this case, venison for thought.
