I figured I would post this becuase a lot of folks like to can venison - and if you haven't tried it I would strongly suggest it!  Canned venison is a great starter for stew or stroganoff to name a few.  At any rate I work in Extension and this has come up recently, my aunt suggested to my father that we try oven canning vension.  


The oven canning method involves placing jars in an oven and heating.   Oven canning is extremely dangerous regardless of the brand of oven, jars, caps or lids you use.  Jars may explode, wrecking the oven or seriously cutting or burning someone.  Most important however is that the temperature of the food in the jars during oven canning is not high enough to destroy dangerous bacteria - particularly the ones that can cause deadly botulism poisioning.


Moral of the story is, do not oven can.  The University of Wisconsin-Extension has a publication out on Canning Meat, Wild Game, Poultry, and  Fish.  It is available in a .pdf format that you can download for FREE - please copy and paste this link into your browser http://learningstore.uwex.edu/pdf/B3345.pdf


The Wisconsin publication also addresses the latest precautions and recommentations for handling venison with regard to Chronic Wasting Disease.  For those in the Pacific Northwest, Pacific Northwest Extension Publications System (Idaho, Washington, Oregon) has a publication entitled Canning Meat, Poultry, & Game and is available from University Of Idaho, Washington State, and Oregon State Extension Offices.


If you have food preservation questions the Extension system is a good place to call.  If you prefer doing research on your own refer to .edu websites since those are education based - publications are research based.


Happy hunting!
