In a formal sense, perhaps, but out here, beyond the ken of NYNY, "venison" 
is used to refer to deer meat, while the meat of other critters (moose, elk, 
antelope) is referred to by the animal name, or, occasionally, as a 
combination, e.g., "elk venison steak."
Our farmers' markets are flooded with morels in late spring/early summer. 
Want me to buy some for you next year, Master A, and dry them?
