Game Processing

I was wondering if most hunters process there own game or take it to a meat processor?

If you cut up your own kill, is there any tips or tricks that you could pass along to the other hunters?

If you take it to a processor,Why? convenience? Don't know how? Don't like the mess?

I think we need a forum just for how to handle game after we kill it. Thumbs up

processing

for smaller game such as deer, i do it all myself, steaks and stew meat and dog food only as i do not want to mess around with a grinder or sausage. for bigger animals like elk, moose, eland, buffalo, i keep out the backstraps and tenderloins after quartering and have the rest processed due to the time constraints and a lack of cooler facilities in the heat of south texas. i think my dog is one of the best fed around--elk, eland, oryx, deer, turkey, sheep, goat.

careing for the meat

I found this site a while ago when i wanted to corn some bear and right now I have a half of a plastic garbage can full of the stuff . Half for my son and half for me . google search "preserving game meats curing and smoking . Fish around there and you'll find all kinds of info . I always do my own butcherihg Except the hamburger. I like to bone out my deer and cut steak and chops and make the burger meat . done that for years I alwaws heard not to wet the mear because it would stay slimy. Well , Hammer 1 has a solution that he washed Marks deer with that dried extremly dry in side . not a fly to be found . Good stuff Hammer !!!!!!
