Patagonia Provisions Lightly Smoked Venison Links:

In the rainforests and watersheds of Hawai’i, growing numbers of invasive axis deer thrive on native foliage, endangering a unique and fragile ecosystem. Our partners humanely harvest the deer to limit the population, conserve native species, and produce a bountiful supply of lean wild meat, which we use for these smoky, savory, healthy little snacks.

Product Details

  • Our venison comes from invasive wild axis deer on the Hawaiian island of Maui, where an absence of predators has allowed their numbers to explode
  • The deer devour fragile native foliage, jeopardizing both land-based and near-shore ecosystems
  • Our partners at Maui Nui manage the deer populations by humane harvest, in the field, under strict USDA supervision
  • Responsible axis deer management means native ecosystems have a chance to recover
  • The nutritious lean meat goes to local communities first, at a discount, easing food insecurity on an island where most food is imported
  • Maui Nui’s venison also goes into our links, seasoned with a hint of juniper and mustard, then lightly smoked
  • The near-absence of fat gives these links a clean finish—no greasy aftertaste
