If you have a couple hours, this is an amazing recipe you can use for most big game: Elk Mountain Chops
Best of Luck,
Take your favorite jerky recipe and soak your meat in the brine for however long, if you like the heat, take your strips and dip them in Mango Habanero sauce from buffalo wild wings then put them in the smoker/ dehydrator. Did this with duck last week and it was incredible!
For jerky i use the dehydrator most of the time and in the winter like to put it on screens to dry naturally. My 2 favorites for the dehydrator are lemon pepper and salsa. Get a jar of your favorite salsa and brush on meat and put to dry, its great. As far as cooking the meat, i'm pretty simple, i just add some teriyaki or soy sauce and it gives it a great flavor and simmers down any gamy taste it may have.
