Tips for Hunters, from the butcher
- Gut your animal immediately, including throat, bladder & rectum
- Start skinning your animal within the first hour
- Most game meat Spoils because its not skinned quickly
- Wash your animal with clean water after skinning
- Let your animal dry completely
- Wrap your animal in a dry cloth “no plastic”
- Do Not piece out your animal, leave it whole if possible
For “Out of State” see the video link page on how to remove the spine properly, leaving your animal able to hang properly
- Use Dry Ice only if weather is extremely warm
(this is normally not necessary if you hunt late Sept-Dec)
If you can’t find dry ice and its above 60 degrees and your worried, double bag regular ice & make sure your animal stays dry. Moisture=Mold
We have more issues with animals that are in ice chest, dry game bags are the best options 99% of the time.
- Do not remove blood shot areas, we will do that when we cut it
- Cutting your animal into pieces exposes the “good” meat to air, dirt and bacteria. You will loose more meat if animal is pieced out!
- Leave the tendon attached on the hind legs to hang it properly
- We can only age meat if it is able to hang in large pieces like shown on our video (and it must stay dry after skinning)
Properly Gutted, Skinned & Cleaned animals that are left whole will yield the most meat possible. Animals that are not gutted and skinned quickly enough risk “Bone Sour” Keeping your animal clean and free of hair and dirt will also help you yield a better finish weight.
