Step by step guide to butchering a deer..........

Recommended Posts


Nice one, where was you when I first got Lambs? I must say my own self tought methods are almost identical (on deer that is) except the boning of the back leg where I leave the bone whole and I seem to use my clever for more than I should. :rolleyes:

Ive been fine tuning my carcass handling skills with the help of this, last night I boned all my joints, it went well, and will save freezer space!!

 

Thanks again Marting for putting up the thread :notworthy:

Martin,

 

Brand new to this site from the US. I do all of my own butchering and grinding of whitetails and I have to tell you I learned a thing or two from this post. Fantastic work. Breaking the joints rather than using a bone saw is the way to go, amazing how many people here I cannnot convince of that. Also I use every conceivable scrap for ground meat, necks, everything. Lots of those are wasted here in the US, I just can't bring myself to waste it.

 

You don't mention heart, liver, etc. What do you guys do with it in the UK. I used to eat organ meat but due to the high cholesterol content of organ meat it now goes to my lab, and my dropper, pointer/setter cross, great for their diet and coat. Again, we don't waste much of God's bounty.

 

Any way, great piece.
