This category of antlered game covers animals in a wide range of sizes, yet all of them can be cooked in the same way. So far as that goes, domestic beef can be used in these recipes as well.

Sizes of the animals must, of course, be an average. Younger examples will be smaller, and frequently the females run considerably smaller than the males of comparable age. Keeping this in mind, live weight of a whitetail deer will range as low as 40 pounds for a subspecies of the Coues whitetail to 300 pounds for a Northern one. A blacktail deer will run between 150 to 200 pounds, while the mule deer, which some consider the same species as the blacktail, will go from 250 to 300 pounds. The various major subspecies of caribou (often called reindeer) range from 200 to 300 for a Barren Ground one to 300 to 400 for a Woodland to 450 to 600 for a Mountain caribou, The elk, also known as the wapiti, ranges from 700 to 1,000 pounds live weight. The moose, averaging from 900 to 1,400 pounds, is the largest antlered game on this continent.

As noted, there is considerable difference between live weight and "packed for the freezer weight", but there's a lot of good eating to be had from all except the very smallest animal. If the animal has been carefully killed, cared for, hung, and cut, there is no reason for marinating. The only need for marinating is to tenderize meat or to soak in special flavorings. If you have any question as to whether a particular antlered animal will need marinating, cook and eat first a steak from a tender cut. This will give you a good indication of the condition of the rest of the meat.
