    I don't have any experience with deer meat drying. I have some that I would like to make into salami. Are there any concerns over parasites, wildlife diseases?

    I have not done any dry curing with venison either but I have looked into wildlife parasites. Most of the research I have read says if you freeze the meat for 30 days then fully cook it the parasites are a non issue.

    Well...that's the thing. This would be dry cured salami...not cooked
