the meat of a deer

I'd like to inquire about what the meaning difference between them is.


In the context of a definition of "venison", they mean the same thing.

"The meat from a deer" implies that the meat used to be part of a living deer, but no longer is.

Whereas "The meat of a deer can mean either the flesh that currently is part of a living deer, or flesh that used to be part of a living deer.
