Deer meat is good but check with your local fish & game people about the possible presence of chronic wasting disease in deer.

Yes I wrote a book, it's available all over the place.
Here's my site, you can order it from here:
http://www.raw-dogs.com/default.htm
Or amazon.com, or Borders, etc etc.
If you go to the "links" page on my site, the "New Jersey Boxer Top 50 questions" is an excellent FAQ. Also the Bowchow link has a ton of info.

Supplements are not absolutely necessary, and no two experts agree on how much, how often, what type, etc. Many people overdo it, IMHO.

I've changed a number of dogs with zero problems. The best way is "cold turkey." Keep it very simple at first - like chicken backs & some boneless meat (you don't want TOO much bone in the diet.)
I don't like turkey bones, pretty much everything else I feed. Some people add probiotics & digestive enzymes (from any health food store) for the first few weeks to help with digestion & such, but I've never done this.
