  • thats a good question i would say why not but you really should ask your doctor that because you dont know what the deer was eatting before you shot it

  • Honey, I have eaten deer, elk, fish, beaver, racoon and yes even rattlesanke while i'm preggo. Venison is actually a very lean meat and good for you.

  • I would still ask you dr any way cause pregnant women aren't even suppose to eat lunch meat unless it's microwave or cooked

  • If you thoroughly cook it, it should be fine!!!

  • I dunno who told you that pregnant women cant eat lunch meat without it being microwaved but I think they were blowing smoke up your butt....Thank you ladies for answering my question..I think I ate it while I was pregnant with my daughter but couldn't remember.

  • Actually it's "cooked" lunch meat they say you can eat lol. It's true, they really do tell you that. But they mainly say ham and stuff like that.
    :] just a fact.

  • If you couldnt eat deer while pregnant, I wouldve starved. Lol. Its actually much better for you than beef, etc. Cause its not pumped full of antibiotics and hormones and such like farm raised animals.
