I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction. I am recently motivated to start hunting by a rather angry sleeping boar. Scariest moment of my life. I am looking for some help on how to process and handle my own game. I've watched numerous videos, but they all seem to lack the fine detail. Is there a "how to" manual out there? My property has deer, hogs, turkey, squirrel, raccoon, and dove. Thank you in advance!

What DH3^ said. It really does take some time to learn - whether you go the "no-gut" method or actual gutting the animal. Continue watching those videos. Gutting is very easy and you can get it down quickly. Skinning and quartering can also be pretty straightforward but it does take practice to do it correctly and not waste meat. Further processing of the quarters/loins/straps takes even more time to learn. Just have a friend who is experienced show you at least a couple of times. Make sure you have good sharp knives, a sharpener and take your time! All too often at deer camps folks look at how quickly and efficiently you gut/skin/quarter an animal. Forget them - take it slow and easy - you don't want to cut yourself, waste meat or contaminate it.

Also remember that the Sows are better eating than the boars, especially the big ones 200 plus pounds.

Well said. Take your time it's your meat so don't rush and make easy mistakes.

YouTube will have numerous videos on cleaning and processing hogs and deer. Same for proper gun safety. Go to gun and/or archery ranges to practice with the weapons you choose to hunt with.

Yep, find a buddy to show you. If you don't have one who can, invite someone from here to come hunt with you and you'll have dozen's of potential buddies. laugh
