You’ve had a successful day in the field. Now what? In his book Butchering Deer, expert Peter Fiduccia has all the information you need to prepare deer. Fiduccia starts with the history of hunting deer for meat, the nutritional content of venison, and deer anatomy for better shot placement. He then extensively covers all phases of field dressing and butchering, from eviscerating the animal and skinning hides to how to cut each piece of meat (chuck, rib, short loin, loin end, rump, round, shank, flank, plate, brisket, shoulder, shank, and even bacon and ham). Other topics include:

  • Tag it and drag it: transporting deer from field to home
  • Protecting the carcass from bugs
  • How to prepare a clean working area
  • Tips for grinding burger and sausage meat
  • Guidelines for packaging, labeling, and freezing
  • Sharpening knives and other butchering tools
  • Dry rubs and marinades
  • And many more!

The butchering sections include detailed photos and drawings depicting all sections of meat to the butcher. Fiduccia concludes his guide with a section on how to prepare and cook venison at camp or home using quick and easy recipes.

With Butchering Deer, you can easily become a home deer butcher.
