Nothing new to any of Y'all probably but Just thought I'd share my effort.

I ran four slices of bacon through my meat grinder and added it to about a pound of ground venison along with a healthy dose of salt, fresh ground black pepper and garlic powder.
Since it was too cold to be outside tending the grill I got my stovetop cast iron griddle (ridges side up) piping hot and cooked them to about 135 degrees. Turned them 45 halfway through each side for that nice crosshatched look.

Came out juicy and delicious.

I served them to a friend who eats venison frequently but he assumed it was beef.

How are you keeping your venison burgers together and keep their shape? Mine always seem to fall apart.

Looks great! Going to do some of these this weekend.

Straight venison can be hard to get them to stick together.

I typically only use straight venison for ground meat recipes (tacos, spaghetti, etc) and have the rest made with bacon mixed in.

When I grind them with a couple strips of Bacon I then run a slice of bread through the grinder to flush it out and I let a little of that get in the meat I think that helps too.

Looks awesome and not much beats a good bacon burger!
We go 2 pounds of bacon to every 10 pounds of deer meat add some course ground black pepper and call it good.

We mix a little straight beef fat into our burger. We used to add a brisket, but who can afford that these days? We did use some bacon ends in some bear/venison sausage recently and it was amazing! But we haven't tried it in burger yet.

Made a couple last night. Best venison burger I've had. Didn't taste the bacon with everything else on the burger but it was no where near dry!

Try mixing an egg in the meat. We grind straight deer meat. We don't care for bacon mixed in our burger. Adding some pork or beef fat while grinding helps it stick together too.

I have my processor grind 10% bacon into all my axis burger rather than using beef fat. It's awesome.

looks great! I ground up 10#'s of bacon axis burger on Sunday. I 70-30 mix with 3#'s being bacon ends and pieces. They were good on the grill. I might go a little lighter on the bacon next round.

You can really tell the difference.

After I told my dad about adding bacon to the burger, he did the same. After cooking it, my mom told him the next time he killed an axis she wanted him to have the entire deer ground into bacon burger. She makes meatloaf, meatballs, hamburgers, and all kinds of other stuff out of it. They love it.

I add bacon to mine as well as brisket rub and then put on the smoker at 300 for about an hour. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm GOOD. Oh forgot the pepper jack cheese.

I had the my last axis processed with brisket in the burger meat. That's the first time and it definitely won't be the last. It made the burgers so much better.

I like to put 20% bacon ends and pieces, and grind a jar of jalapenos into the whole thing.

Mix some ground black pepper, red pepper flakes, and a little liquid smoke into it after grinding.

Usually make about 5 lbs at a time, turns out great. People who "don't eat spicy food" and "don't eat game meat" all love it.
