If you are new to cooking with deer meat, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

1. Marinate the meat: If you have the time, marinating the deer steak in a mixture of oil, vinegar, and herbs can help tenderize the meat and add flavor.

2. Don’t overcook: Deer meat is leaner than beef, so it can easily become tough if overcooked. Keep an eye on the internal temperature and remove the steak from the heat when it reaches 145°F for medium-rare.

3. Let it rest: Allowing the deer steak to rest for a few minutes before slicing will help ensure that it stays juicy and tender.

With these tips in mind, you are ready to make a delicious and flavorful deer steak that is sure to impress.
