Restaurant to offer deer meat sandwiches in some states

(KAIT) - With deer hunting season fast approaching, many will be trekking out into the woods to hunt for venison.

However, Arby's announced it would offer venison sandwiches this fall in six states where deer hunting is popular.

The restaurant chain said the sandwich includes thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions on a roll.

Chief Marketing Officer Rob Lynch said the idea is "probably the biggest stretch for us yet," but added the meat is "incredibly delicious."

Arby's will offer the sandwich from Oct. 31 to Nov. 28 in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Georgia.
