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

Recommended Posts

Thanks for this post Martin. This is such an informative one. It seems that you have the best hands to do this stuff.

This really helps in giving a step by step process of how to have great cuts until the very best little cuts.

 

 

Good job!

Just spotted this, what a great post!

 

I use the offal to make venison haggis, it's so much better than the commercially bought sheepy stuff! Also occasionally I chop a heart into small slivers and oven dry them as training treats for the dog.

 

One thing I do differently (and I know everyone has different ways) is instead of splitting the pelvis and then separating the H bone from the haunches, I split the haunches from the pelvis with it still attached to the spine. It just makes getting to the ball and socket joint that much easier with something to lever against.

 

Also, boning the joints is optional. I always leave the bone in because I feel that meat cooked on the bone has more flavour to it. Just personal taste really, neither method is "correct" it's purely down to how you feel.

 

Still a fantastic, well thought out and well executed post. It must have taken an age to do, well done Martin!

Excellent post mate. How long do you hang a deer before you butcher it, as there seems to be very little blood in the pics.
