- Two to 4 days ahead, in a mixing bowl just large enough to hold meat and vegetables, toss venison, carrot, onion, and celery together. Add thyme, salt, cayenne, wine, and vinegar. Cover and marinate in a cool place 50 to 55 F or in warmest part of refrigerator for 2 to 4 days, turning meat and vegetables every day.
- Drain meat and vegetables in a colander for about 30 minutes, reserving marinade. Sort out vegetables from meat and set vegetables aside. Dry meat on towels.
- In a large, heavy frying pan, heat a thin coat of corn oil over medium heat. Add meat in several batches, being careful not to overcrowd, and saut until brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer meat to a stew pot.
- In the same frying pan, saut vegetables for about 5 minutes. Add more corn oil if necessary. Add sauted vegetables to meat and season with salt and pepper.
- Heat oven to 300F.For the brown roux, add flour to fat in frying pan. Add more corn oil if necessary to make 2 tablespoons. Stir with a wooden spoon and cook until roux is nut brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Strain reserved marinade over roux and quickly whisk it together. Add water and bring to a boil. Strain liquid into the pot with the meat.Cover pot tightly and bake on middle shelf of oven for 3 1/2 hours, until meat is very tender.
- Transfer meat and vegetables with a slotted spoon to a heated serving dish, cover, and keep warm.To degrease and thicken sauce, put pot half on burner and let surface that is over the burner come to a boil. Surface of pot off the burner should stand still.
- Lower heat if it's moving. Occasionally, skim and degrease the non-heated surface. Cook in this manner until sauce thickens and becomes shiny, about 30 minutes. Serve stew and pass sauce and pears separately.
