We have the (deer) meats?

A year after selling a venison sandwich at its restaurants in only a handful of "hunting-centric" states, Arby's announced this week that it will start selling the sandwich nationwide later this month.

Arby's venison sandwich will be available across America on Oct. 21 and will be sold "while supplies last," according to an announcement from the company.


The fast-food company claims that the sandwiches loaded with venison — aka deer meat — sold out "within hours" in 2016.

Hoping to attract more "meat enthusiasts," Arby's Chief Marking Officer Jim Taylor said "We knew we had to find a way to offer it nationwide."

According to the company, the sandwich includes a venison steak and crispy onions topped with juniper berry sauce.

Along with the venison sandwich, Arby's will offer a limited-edition elk sandwich at only three restaurant locations on Oct. 21.

The elk sandwich will be sold at locations in Thornton, Colorado; Casper, Wyoming; and Billings, Montana.
