~ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ~ - - - - - - - - - If the lower part of the leg is used, remove the shank bone from the venison. Place the meat in a large bowl, & marinate overnight in the wine with the Onion, Garlic, Bay Leaf & Juniper Berries.
Preheat oven to hot 450 degrees.

Remove the meat from the marinade & skewer & tie it into a compact shape. Strain and reservee the marinade. Insert a thermometer in the thickest portion of muscle & place the meat on a rack in an open roasting pan. Place the bacon strips on top of the meat.
Roas the meat twenty minutes. Reduce the oven temp. to moderate, 325 degrees & cook 15-18 min per pound to an internal temperature of 140 degrees for very rare; 150 degrees for medium-well done. While the meat is roasting, be sure to baste occasionally with the marinade. Serve with boiled potatoes, or as I use to, with boiled chestnuts.
