Chili is short for "chili con carne" or "capiscum peppers with meat" - elk chili would then be chili con carne made with Elk as the meat. Don't even ask about beans because the truth of the matter is that the entire American Civil War was over whether or not one uses beans in chili. they just re-wrote the history books because it seemed pretty foolish after it all ended in a stalemate.
