Jerky is a way to preserve meat through a dehydration process. You can pretty much jerky any kind of meat you are able to obtain while in the wild. You want to cut the meat as thinly as possible so it is sure to dehydrate all of the way through.
Moisture is the enemy in this case and if the meat is not thoroughly dehydrated can spoil relatively quickly. If done properly preserved meat can last months.
Check out this video to see how elk meat is made, in a traditional manner, into jerky when there is no refrigeration or way to keep the meat fresh.
If you want to make jerky this is a great project that can even be done in your backyard. Notice the tripod rack used for holding the meat. You can construct one of these in no time.
