Animal Farming 101: Are sika deer related to elk?

The sika deer also known as the spotted deer or the Japanese deer, is a species of deer native to much of East Asia and introduced to other parts of the world

Although they are called deer, sika deer are actually a member of the elk family. They are also called sika elk or Asian elk. Males are called “stags” and females are called “hinds” or “cows." They were first introduced in the Chesapeake Bay watershed on James Island in Dorchester County, Maryland, in 1916.

Deer meat, as you note, is called venison. Baby deer are called fawns. There is no term for fawn meat, however. This is likely because people do not generally eat it: In most countries, the US included, it is illegal to hunt deer under a certain age.
