My opinion its still good as long it was tightly wrapped with a good seal. I typically have a couple packages left over every year and they always seem to be ok.How long will deer meat stay good in the freezer? I had one processed last october and still have a little burger left, will it be ok.
what he said.You'll know if it is freezer burnt. It won't hurt you, but tastes bad. Even if you scrape off the dried part, the taste remains. But as long as there is no dry crust on it after it defrosts, it should be fine. Burger is the worst to burn though, since you usually don't put any water in the package to buffer it.
