Meat of animals hunted by an atheist

Q: I have got a gift from an atheist guy. The gift is deer meat that he hunted from the woods. Is it haram to eat from the deer meat that the atheist guy had given me as a gift? And is it haram to eat any king of food from atheists? Food like pies, fruits, rice, etc?

A: It is haraam.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
