Atlanta — Deer hunting season is on the way, but fans of venison might not have to trek out into the woods this year to get their fix.

Arby’s has announced that it will be offering venison sandwiches this fall in six states, including Michigan, where deer hunting is popular. The Atlanta-based chain says its sandwich will include thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions on a roll.

The venison sandwiches will be available at the following Michigan locations Nov. 12-15:

■ 4229 W Vienna Road, Clio

■ 4040 17 Mile Rd. NE, Cedar Springs

■1215 M-89, Plainwell

■ 8685 Birch Run Road, Birch Run

In a release announcing the sandwich, Arby’s chief marketing officer Rob Lynch acknowledges that the idea “is probably the biggest stretch for us yet” but adds that the deer meat meal is “incredibly delicious.”

The venison sandwich will be available for a few days at select restaurants from Oct. 31 to Nov. 28 in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia.
