All good hunters strive to abide by a code of Hunter’s Ethics. Some of the rules included in this code are regulated by the law, but the majority of hunters also have self-imposed regulations that they choose follow. This code dictates the pursuit of an animal – both before and after a broadhead or bullet has been fired. In fact, the most critical area of self-regulated hunting ethics is likely what takes place after a shot has been fired.
Part of the reason that I use FoodSaver products is because they ensure that the animal that I respect, and the meat that I worked so hard to acquire and care for in the field, is going to be properly “cared for” in the many months that it rests in my freezer before feeding my family. That’s a “deep” reason, but let me be honest – the practicality of a FoodSaver is just as important.
I have been using FoodSaver products for years. I have used at least three different versions of their vacuum sealers to pack and preserve wild game, and all have worked quite well to make the packing process easier and effectively preserve my game meat in a “fresh” state for many, many months. The latest model that I’ve been using is FoodSaver’s GameSaver Titanium, and it is the model that you have a chance to win! (See below)
FoodSaver vs. Conventional Wrapping
I take pride in processing the meat that I harvest. It’s a rewarding process, but it is a lot of work. I used to use a conventional wrapping technique – taking my trimmed cuts of meat and wrapping them tightly in plastic wrap and freezer paper, then sealing the packing with tape. That works alright, but the process is time consuming and I was never satisfied with how much air I was able to purge out of the wrapped package, as well as how it was sealed. Those wrapped packages last a while in my freezer, but there was a noticeable decline in the quality of meat as it sat for longer periods of time.
The process of packing with FoodSaver is much simpler. I simply take my trimmed meat and drop it in a FoodSaver vacuum bag, then let the vacuum sealer do all of the work – purging all air from the package and creating a long-lasting, airtight seal. And when compared to the meat that I used to wrap myself, the meat that I pack with my FoodSaver will easily last twice as long in my freezer
Regardless of which FoodSaver vacuum sealer you use, you will get those great benefits. Any of their units will help increase your meat-processing efficiency and ensure the quality of meat remains, even when it rests frozen for over a year. But having used a variety of their units, I do want to highlight a few things about the “granddaddy” of them all…
The GameSaver Titanium
As soon as I opened the Titanium I noticed its build quality. It’s larger, beefier, and screams durability. The large operational buttons are rubberized, which makes the unit easy to operate with messy hands, and then easy to clean-up after the job is done. Thanks to the Titanium’s built-in roll storage/dispenser slot, as well as the cutter in the lid, creating custom-sized freezer bags from FoodSaver rolls has never been easier.
Inside the Titanium, you’ll find a removable, dishwasher-safe drip tray, and the massive 15″ sealing bands. The Titanium’s sealing capabilities are far better than any other unit I’ve tried. The Titanium has single- and duel-sealing modes, and can make up to 100 repetitive seals. When you have a lot of meat that’s ready to be packaged, the “always ready” repetitive sealing of the Titanium is a huge advantage. And with the ability to seal packages up to 15″ in wide, even the largest roasts of a big game animal (such as an elk) are vacuum packaged and sealed without a problem.
