The term "venison" commonly refers to the meat of deer, but it can also mean the meat of other game animals, including elk, moose, caribou and antelope. These meats have a gamey flavor because of the animals' diets; however, many of them (notably deer meat) are lower in calories and fat than beef. Venison generally has more protein per serving than beef as well. It's also high in iron, which is good for iron deficiency anemia prevention.
