Do you guys use a 50-50 mix for your sausage, or some other ratio? Next weekend we're making sausage and I'm trying to finalize plans.

I do a 50/50 ratio.  I am also pretty picky and believe that Boston Butt Pork Shoulders work the best for me - it makes a leaner sausage as well.

Y'all call me a paranoid gun-nut now, but we all know who you're going to be running to for help when the zombies show up.

We have also found that Boston Pork Butt work the best, only difference is we use 60/40 blend. 60% pork to 40% deer. Years ago we started with 50/50, but 10 or 12 years ago switched when I tasted the 60/40 blend. Most guys in our area go with the 60/40 with some even at 2/3 pork to 1/3 deer. Picked up Pork Butts at Sams Club last weekend for $1.39 per lb. Thought that was a good deal.

Same here, I like a little extra pork in there. We also buy them by the case at Sam's.

My  ring sausage recipe uses 5 lb deer, 5lb pork and 2 lb beef.  Adding a liltte beef seems to add some flavor. 

Breakfast sauage is 50/50.

 I used to use more fat, but now I stick with about 80-85% venison. Deer meat is healthy. I like to keep it that way when I make sausage.  It is not dry like everyone claimed it would be either.

70-30 here...I don't like my sausage too greasy (that's what she said), and this seems to work best.  And I also use only Boston Butts for the pork.

I use 1/3 venison, 1/3 pork and 1/3 beef for my ring sausage. Everyone who has tried it likes it.

We butcher our own pigs so it's a mix of trimmings.  Probably about 80/20 meat to fat in our pork.  We have made sausage at all ratio's and i find it depends on what we make. 

Country sausage - 50/50 or even higher percentages of venison are just fine. 
Brats and Polish i like the pork to be at 60%+  We tend to grill them so the added fat just melts and makes them plump and juicy rather than dryer and tougher.   50/50 isn't bad especially if your adding high temp cheese but we have the pork so we increase it out of preference.
Pepper sticks are 80% venison 20% Beef. 
Summer sausage is Venison 60% Beef 30% and Pork 10%.
