Arby's is celebrating hunting season with venison sandwiches

Restaurants in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia -- states Arby's said have "heavy deer hunting areas" -- are offering the item starting Oct 31.

The sandwiches have thick-cut venison steak marinated in garlic and cooked for three hours. They're topped with onions and berry sauce in between a toasted roll.

Arby’s Brand President and Chief Marketing Officer Rob Lynch told USA Today that the "100 percent deer meat" comes from the hind quarters of free-range, grass-fed deer.

"Bringing venison to our menu also allows us to continue to set ourselves apart from the competition when it comes to proteins," Lynch said. "You simply can’t find this at other restaurant chains."

Arby's said the following restaurants will have venison sandwiches for a limited time that varies by location:
