ohDEER All Natural Deer, Tick & Mosquito Control Logo


ohDEER is the leader in all natural deer, mosquito, and tick control.

In 2017, we are celebrating 10 years in business.

We are based in Wayland, MA.  Out of this office we service the Metropolitan Boston region.

Our franchise business, launched only three years ago, now has seven franchisee offices, with one office dedicated to one of the following areas: North of Boston, South of Boston, Central Massachusetts, Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands, Eastern Long Island (NY), and Central New Jersey.

We often discuss here – as was the case in the post on this blog that preceded this post –how ohDEER has a sort of, okay, we will use that precise word yet again – “complicated” – relationship with deer.

Yes, since deer can carry ticks, some of which cause disease – and since deer like to chew on and make a meal of plants, some of which may be components of the landscape or grounds of a home or business – people come to us to apply the all-natural solutions that keep deer off of your property.

Then, again, though, deer are beautiful and elegant creatures.

As well, deer are a nutritious food source – one of high protein with little fat.

It captured our attention, the news, that Arby’s – the restaurant chain that dubs itself the “home of the meats” – is bringing back this in 2017 its Venison Sandwich.

Last year, Arby’s released the Venison Sandwich in only five states, and in 17 restaurants; and as company statement reports, the sandwich “sold out within hours.”

This year, Arby’s will sell the Venison Sandwich nationwide, in all 3,300 of its restaurants.  The sandwich will be available for one day, Saturday, October 21, while supplies last.

Here is descriptor of the Venison Sandwich taken from the Arby’s website:

“This limited time sandwich features a thick-cut venison steak marinated in garlic, salt, and pepper and is cooked for three hours to juicy perfection. It’s topped with crispy onions and a cabernet steak sauce infused with juniper berries. Served on a toasted star top bun.​​”

Kurt Upham’s thoughts?

“Venison is delicious when done right – just about the best meat there is,” said Kurt.  “Yet, tremendous care and preparation goes into bringing it to the table in delicious form.  For example, depending on the part of the animal, the best method of preparation and cooking, and length of time cooking, can vary widely.

“Now, I have to say, Arby’s marketing has described a delicious sandwich.  And, for a thick-cut venison steak, three hours cooking sounds about right – that is, if the temperature is also right. Gotta love, also, the ‘cabernet sauce infused with juniper berries.’”

Will Kurt partake of the Venison Sandwich?

“There is an Arby’s over in Marlborough, about 18 miles from ohDEER, via either Rte. 20 or Rte 27.  I’m thinking trying out the sandwich warrants that short road trip.  I’ll taste and provide a review.”


Arby’s is really going with the game meat this fall.   For, also on October 21, is offering an elk sandwich at three locations, all in elk country:  Billings, MT; Casper, WY; and Thorton, CO.
