Buck down! Congratulations on notching your tag, but after the trigger is pulled, the real work begins. The first step to prep your deer for the grill, crockpot or jerky drying rack is field dressing the animal.
Field dressing means removing the animal’s internal organs to preserve its meat. This process stops bacterial growth by cooling down the meat, draining blood, and removing organs and waste products that could contaminate your deer.
One popular alternate method of getting your meat out of the woods is by quartering the animal. This is useful with larger game like elk, or if you have a long pack out to the truck. This method leaves some useful meat behind but can come in handy.
Now you’re ready to fire up the grill, pack freezer bags for later consumption, or get your drying racks loaded up.
