I made 6 pounds of breakfast sausage half sandhill crane and half maple flavored bacon and it was awesome tried it with venison and it was just as good.  If you like it a little sweeter i put some brown sugar in with some of the sausage.  Primo yummy

Like others have said it is really personal preference. My family likes the 60 deer,25 pork and 15 beef mix for fry sausage. I use to do the Boston butts, but have found that one of the local supermarkets have great ground pork for about the same price.

When making breakfast sausage though I do run a 60-40 mix of pork to deer simply because of the fat content. We use it up quickly and make it in batches of 10lbs.

I did make some sausage last year that was 50-50 beef and deer using a 70% lean beef. It turned out well but was a bit on the dry side for my liking. Some of the landowners I give sausage to do not eat pork!
In my lifetime I have seen fence row to fence row farming and the return of CRP and game to the landscape.Now we face again the prosepect of fence row to fence row again! Sportsman are our own worst enemy in that we fail to look forward and focus to much on the now!

I'm with TMRfish.   The less  fat the better IMHO.    I never add any fat to ground venison, and only absolutely minimum (almost none) to sausage.   
My arteries are probably  plugged up enough without making them even worse.  Trying to save Medicare some money so you young tax paying guys won't have to pay so much to unclog them!

 You can get by with a LOT less pork if you trim ALL, I mean ALL the silver/white crap outta your venison.

SHARP knives and small chunks prior to grinding would be the key as the smaller chunks are much easier to trim all the silver crud out/off of.

This moment is a paradox, it's the oldest you've ever been as well as the youngest you'll ever be.
