If you’ve been wondering how to de-bone a deer, this is the post for you. But, before I even go any further, please note that some of these pictures are of a dead deer. Sorry, but de-boning a deer requires the deer to be dead. So, if you’re squeamish, you might not want to read any further. My hubby does all of the “outside” work when it comes cleaning the deer and the kids and I handle the actual processing of it (turning it into usable cuts of meat). James, now 15, is starting to learn the process of cleaning the deer, so I imagine in the next few years he’ll be doing just as much as his dad. 🙂
Before beginning, have all your tools and space set up inside where you will be processing the meat. It makes everything go so much smoother when the meat is brought in.
Once the legs have been de-boned and all the meat has been washed and cleaned, wrap each piece in freezer paper, tape the ends and place it all in the freezer.
Now that this part is done, wash your utensils, clean up your work area and sit back and relax for a bit.
