That's when the fat has a waxy feel & texture, both when you're butchering the deer and when you prepare it. Even after you cook it and it cools, it goes back to that "tallowy" texture. I don't like it, so all our game is very closely trimmed of all fat.

Have never had corn fed deer, would love to try one of these days! I'm guessing it would taste more similar to beef than wild game. We don't have corn fed deer or elk where we're at. The elevation is too high.

Most all deer here are crop fed so I can't really compare to anything else, but they are delicious Yes

Do they like their corn cut with butter and salt or do you let them eat it off the stalk?

They are kind of picky around here and want it creamed.
