Hey guys, I have deer hunted for the pass few years and I have never cleaned a deer myself. Do you know of any places/school that I could go to learn how to clean a deer?

Youtube has a bunch of really good videos. There are several methods, but all generally the same. Saw a vid recently that a guy gutted and skinned with head and legs off in less than two minutes. Takes me longer, but I see you're in houston. Im just south of houston. Ive only done two deer but plenty of hog and its all about the same. I dont have a deer to show you on, but when the time comes id be happy to show you how. Pm me if you want my contact info

it's really easier than folks make it out to be.
you'll also figure out what knives are practical
for butchering and which are for fashion

It's well worth doing yourself. I can't show you how to do it. But I can show the results of a 110 lb. doe.

Tenderloins & Loins


Roasts from two hind legs


Chunks from shoulders for stew and daube


Bone-in neck (great for roast or soup)


Ground scraps and trimmings for burgers or sausage


TOTAL: 31 lbs. 10 oz. boneless meat plus the neck.

Best thing is go to a meat market or processor and get hands on experience

In my experience of processing a large game animal 1- work area large enough 2- correct processing utensils 3- right equipment ( grinder, vacuum packer, sausage maker etc.) 4- how many do you plan on doing yourself - time, expenses, cost compared to a processor.
I do quarter mine, take the back straps from there it goes to a processor.

I cheat a little. Only takes a few seconds to skin with my jeep and having an uncle who was a butcher show me where to put the knife is a bonus. Hogs take me way longer cause you can't yank the hide off of them like you can a deer.

be sure the rope hanging the deer out of the tree is stronger than the rope attached to vehicle ... only took once to learn that lesson bang
