Ever had a fast-food venison sandwich before? If not, you might have a chance at Arby's.
Arby's recently announced its "Fast Crafted sandwich" brand will release the venison sandwich in early November given the popularity of hunting season, according to the press release.
"Hunters hunt the meats, and we have the meats, so it makes sense for us to connect with them and offer a sandwich that they can’t get at any other restaurant chain," said Rob Lynch, Chief Marketing Officer and Brand President of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc.
The sandwich will be offered in 17 locations around the country. You'll be able to find it at these four locations in Michigan from November 12th to 15th:
- 4229 W Vienna Rd., Clio, Mich. 48420
- 4040 17 Mile Rd. NE, Cedar Springs, Mich. 49319
- 1215 M 89, Plainwell, Mich. 49080
- 8685 Birch Run Rd., Birch Run, Mich. 48415
The sandwich features onions, juniper berry sauce, and a cut of venison steak that's marinated in garlic, salt and pepper, and placed on a toasted specialty roll.

With a deer-meat sandwich being new terrain for chain restaurants, we couldn't help but ask people what they thought about the idea via Twitter:
Arby's is celebrating hunting season with a deer meat (venison) sandwich in some Michigan stores. Would you try it?

Heck yes I would eat a venison sandwich. Especially if it was from our LOCAL Arby's franchises, which are the best in the country!

You don't really live in the middle of nowhere until your Arby's is one of only 17 locations in the country to sell deer meat.
