Preserve the Fresh Taste of Your Game

There’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh game. With the help of the FoodSaver® GameSaver® system, your game can stay tender and moist.

Vacuum sealing with the FoodSaver® GameSaver® system locks out the air and moisture that cause spoilage and keeps your meat fresh up to five times longer than traditional storage methods*. Butcher paper, ice-packs and zipper bags can’t prevent freezer burn but vacuum sealing can with the FoodSaver® GameSaver® appliance**.

Avoid waste by storing game properly. Vacuum-sealed game can last up to three years in the freezer! Check out the chart for details.

*Storage life comparisons are estimates based upon preparation and storage of food as described in the FoodSaver® Reference Guide. Additional accessories may be required for best results.

**Independent National Food Laboratory Study, 2003. Claims and demonstrations depict or represent typical use under normal in-home conditions. Results of individual users may differ somewhat depending upon variations in handling, storage conditions, food and types of freezers. “Freezer burn” is defined as an irreversible loss of measurable moisture over time.

Fresh from Field to Freezer - to Your Table!

Vacuum packaging is a great solution for transporting game. Simply place vacuum packaged game in a cooler with ice or cold packs. It won’t smell, and it will be tidier and more effective than paper wrapping.

Prior to storing, keep meat as cool as possible to avoid spoilage. Vacuum seal and freeze deer, elk, wild turkey, duck and any other game in individual or family-size portions. For added zest, marinate meats before freezing with the FoodSaver® Quick Marinator accessory which uses the vacuum system to let you marinate in minutes instead of hours. After marinating, remove meat from the Quick Marinator and vacuum seal in a FoodSaver® bag. Mark each package with the date for easy reference later and freeze.

You will conserve freezer space and virtually eliminate freezer burn while you and your family enjoy fresh tasting game for months – even years!

Tips from the Pros

Wade Middleton, acclaimed outdoorsman, offers a few helpful tips for getting the most out of your FoodSaver® GameSaver® system.

  • • Having a sealed change of clothes can be a lifesaver when you’re in the field. Seal and protect other items essential to a successful outdoor adventure as well, including maps, matches and cameras.
  • • When traveling in remote locations, meal planning is important. Use the FoodSaver® GameSaver® system to marinate and pack meats for the trip, saving space and ensuring good meals along the way.
  • • For longer trips, keep vacuum-sealed meat cool and fresh using dry ice covered with a towel on the bottom of the cooler.

Preserving Your Catch

Catch it, Bag it, Vacuum Seal It™. There’s nothing like freshly-caught fish. With the help of the FoodSaver® GameSaver® system, your fish can stay fresh.

Vacuum sealing your catch with the FoodSaver® GameSaver® system locks out the air and moisture that cause spoilage and keeps your catch fresh up to five times longer than traditional storage methods*. Butcher paper, ice-packs and zipper bags can’t prevent freezer burn but vacuum sealing can with the FoodSaver® GameSaver® appliance.**

Avoid waste by storing your catch properly. Vacuum-sealed fish can last up to two years in the freezer! Check out the chart for details.

Fresh to the Freezer - Fresh to Your Table!

Vacuum packaging is also a great solution for transporting your fresh catch. Simply place vacuum packaged seafood in a cooler with ice or cold packs. It won’t smell, and it will be much tidier and more effective than paper wrapping.

Be sure to keep fresh fish as cool as possible to avoid spoilage. For best results, pre-freeze fish 1-2 hours before vacuum packaging. This helps retain the natural moisture and shape and achieves a better seal. If it’s not possible to pre-freeze, place a folded paper towel between the fish and the top seal of the FoodSaver® Bag to absorb excess moisture during the vacuum sealing process.

Vacuum seal and freeze your fish whole, filleted or cut into steaks and mark each package with the date for easy reference later. You’ll conserve freezer space and virtually eliminate freezer burn while you and your family enjoy fresh caught flavor for months – even years!

Tips from the Pros

Wade Middleton, acclaimed outdoorsman, offers a few helpful tips for getting the most out of your FoodSaver® GameSaver® system.

  • • Prevent rusting hooks and terminal tackle by vacuum sealing several small packages of hooks and tackle in advance to match what you typically use in a day of fishing.
  • • Separate and seal colors and styles of bait that are only used a few times a year. All will be kept dry and readily available when needed.
  • • Vacuum sealing with the FoodSaver® GameSaver® system preserves the scents of bait much better than when stored in a hard tackle box or other plastic storage bag.
