Is deer burger meat and sausage from last year still good?

Friend left his meat in our freezer and now doesn't want it because it is a year old. I am assuming it is fine for me to make some burger patties or meatloaf with it tomorrow (I have some regular hamburger to mix with it and I may put bacon over the meatloaf also). Anybody think a year old is too old?

I sure hope not. I eat year old deer met yearly as long as it stayed in the freezer it should be 100% fine

We just ate duck breast from last year in August to clean out the freezer for the new season. I assumed this was the same with deer also.

Venison can last up to two years in the freezer.

You're good.

Vacuum sealed, I've had backstrap that was a year and half old. I'm alive.

You should be fine but I would probably make a chili or spaghetti sauce with it.

I've eaten frozen meat older than that before. As long as it's vacuum sealed.

no discoloration and vacuum sealed all sounds good. I'm assuming y'all kept the freezer going during the hurricane.

If it's not frost bitten or has any ice crystals I say go for it

My gauge of edible frozen food for sanitation purposes is two years.
