I believe all wild "ungalates"(2 toed animals) are called "venison". I could be wrong though.
(Deer/Elk/Caribou/etc.)

Venison, though we call it elk to differentiate.

Venison refers to the meat from a hunted large game species, originally the European Red Deer and related species. As the elk is most closely related to the red deer, I think venison is the best word for elk meat. The etymology of venison, is that comes from the Latin for hunting, venor, which is connects to venerate, venerial, and venus, meaning love, because of the concept of pursuing something desireable.

Sounds like it's called venison, I have never heard anything other than "elk meat". Thanks for the answers. I enjoy elk meat much more than deer, well at least mule deer.

If you take French derivitives out of English, you're left with pig meat (pork), cow meat (beef), sheep meat (mutton), chicken (poultry), etc.
If you like your English straight up, moose meat, elk meat, and deer meat is more specific.

Anything in the deer family is called venison. All venison is very good. I do not have personal experience but but some people say that mountanin lion is like deer but better. It would be worth a try:)
