Last night, my SO's neighbor gave him a freezer bag with frozen raw meat in it. He said it was deer meat (aka venison) but the guy doesn't always know what he is talking about.
He also put some wood on the fire and said it was birch but then said it was a soft maple.
Apparently the guy was in the Vietnam war and Desert Storm as well as being a truck driver.
After handing the meat to my SO, the neighbor was talking about eating squirrel and racoons. Is there a way to know exactly what is in that bag? Should we eat it? What do we say to the neighbor when he asks if we ate it?

As long as the meat is cooked thoroughly I think it should be OK. I might marinate it & either slow cook it or throw it on the grill. If you've had deer before, you will be able to tell in the 1st bite if it's really deer. I've never had squirrel or raccoon, so I have no idea how it tastes. Some people do eat that kind of meat tho, so who knows, you might like it. If you aren't the "adventurous" type, then do what KTElite said. :p

I would also say I didn't care for it. That I was a picky eater, and it was too strange tasting for me. That way he hopefully won't give me more.
