Exotic Meat Market® Offers Short Ribs of Axis Deer. Axis Deer from Island of Molokai, Hawaii.
Many consider Axis Venison to be the best-tasting venison in the world. Axis venison has the mildest flavor and most tender meat of commercially marketed venison and is the most approachable to restaurant guests who may be afraid to try game meat. The meat is deep red in color and contains less than 1% fat and therefore can be marketed as fat-free. By comparison, Fallow Deer & Red Deer have a fat content of 5% - 7%. Axis Deer meat was judged best tasting wild game meat by the Exotic Wildlife Association.
