Despite some new research about prions in the muscle portion of infected
animals; most of the research indicates no issues with muscle based
meat.  You just want to avoid central nervous system bits and pieces.
Sausage would not be a good idea from an unknown source, but a nice bit
of smoked tenderloin would be quite good.

Also, if you know your hunter friend, you have to assume that he/she
would not take down a sick "downer" animal.

Paranoia is sometimes useful, just know the facts.

I dunno.... Deer in Minnesota are suffering from a Chronic Wasting 
Disease that is pretty much the same prion base as CJD and Mad Cow 

I was offered some venison at a BBQ by one of my neighbors who is a 
deer hunter and kindly declined... :-(
