great post. I've been dressing my own deer for a couple of years now since I moved to Texas but there was a lot of info on here that I hadn't seen before.

Thanks for the help.

That must have took hours for him to take the pictures, dress out the deer, review the pic's, edit the pic's (including the added yellow lines explaining the different cuts of meat), and then posting directions.

Very much appreciated.

I've processed many, but I learned a few more tricks I'll put to use. Appears I've been wasteful in the past. Also look like I won't need my machete.

Every time I've taken one to a processor, I've felt ripped off. Doing it yourself is much more satisfying and part of the experience.

Great post. I'm bookmarking this one for future reference.

I have always found that processing a deer goes so much faster when you have 1 or 2 friends come over and help out

drink a few cold ones ( i drink tea ) and put on some Hank Jr.

after the meat is labelled and wrapped , I send my friends home with a few packages of meat

the favor is returned when i help them out at their house

I used to go to a lot of trouble stringing them up, now I use the hide as a table cloth and process them on the ground. If you can find snow on the ground it is great to sling the meat across. The snow will take off all the blood or hair if you get any on the meat and it's already chilled down ready to freeze.

I have done this way of skinning all my life. This year I am going to try doing it taking long strokes cutting the hide down the length of the body instead of pulling the hide and cutting in small strokes around the body cavity.

I tried the rock and truck method once and wasn't impressed with the results.

Great tutorial! That is exactly how I do it except it go ahead and take the hind legs off the pelvis while it is hanging so i dont have to mess with it on the table and no sawing is required at all. After 3 years of doing it this way I can have a deer gutted and in a cooler in less than 20 minutes.

My Bohemian hunting mentor taught me to take your lopping shears and cut up the bones and put them in a feed bag to take to your dogs at home. All we would throw out was the guts and the hide. The buzzards in Junction never ate good while we were there.

I use the foodsaver when I process mine. It's a lot easier and faster than the saran wrap/butcher paper method.
