The first thing I would do is go to your Dr.

And have a alegery test done to make sure.

It might not be the deer meat but something else.

But before I would give up deer meat I would make sure.

And if it is deer meat maybe the Dr. would tell you to take some Benadryl with the deer meat.

But I would check it first out to be for sure.

Good Luck

My guess is it's not the venison but the MSG(monosodiumglutamate) you put in the jerky to cure it. I've eaten venison for years but the first time I ate home made deer jerky I experienced the same thing. I took a couple years to figure it out and now that I know what causes it I stay away from it and haven't had the problem since. I still eat lots of venison but no jerky. The soy sauce I used as a marinate was what contained the MSG.

Friend of mine is allergic. Reacts similar to a moderately severe bee sting.
