My buddy brought a whitetail doe over to my house last night and I butchered it for him and it got me thinking that I haven't seen a thread on butchering yet. Here's what I've got and how I do it. I'm using pictures from both my buck and my buddies doe. Gotta start with an animal This buck was a couple miles in so I had to quarter it and hoof it out, I put the meat on some trees to cool Round steaks and backstrap all cut and trimmed ready for wrapping, from my friends doe. Bacon ends to mix in with ground venison, soooo good!!! 3/4 hp grinder and a bunch of burger, the lighter colored meat is the bacon My 5 yr old mixing up the meat I package the burger in appx 8 oz chunks in sandwich bags and then put 10-12 of them in heavy bread bags, this is the easiest way I've found to make individual packs of burger and it allows me to pull out exactly how many bags of of burger I need. 42 8-9 oz packages of burger stuffed in the bread bags and 18 lbs of cut and wrapped steaks, this is from my friends doe. I was out this evening trying to fill my doe tag with no luck and I still have a couple more days and if I do I'll be turning it into sausage so I'll post up here how that goes. Now, how do all you guys do yours? Any recipes and sausage/seasoning mixes that you use that you'd like to share would be awesome also, I'm always on the lookout for new ways to cook dinner.
