The present study aims to describe the current situation in venison production and consumption in the Czech Republic. The differences in meat composition and quality between venison from wild and from farmed animals are also mentioned. Two-hundred and three Czech consumers participated in the study and completed a questionnaire in 2017. From the results it is evident, that wild boar is the most popular kind of venison followed by roe deer, hare and red deer.
