Ever get tired of paying someone else to process the wild game you harvest, but wish it was easier to do? It’s actually much simpler than you might think.
Cabela’s American Archer team member, Adam Eller, took a short amount of time out of his day to make this easy to follow video about how to start the process.
One thing to keep in mind about this video is that they used a deer that had hung and cooled for a few days. This makes the process cleaner and the meat is easier to handle.
Cooled meat also grinds better without getting stopped up. The same idea can be accomplished with meat that has been frozen and then partially thawed.
One thing you will find out when you process you own game is that the feeling of accomplishment which comes from “making meat” is heightened when you literally bring it from field to fork.
