Big Game from Hunt to Home

For your next hunting trip, the information in this publication will make sure the meat you bring home will be high quality. Meat from big game animals (deer, antelope, elk, moose, and bear) is a nutritious choice for family meals. Step-by-step instructional text and photos tell how to field dress the animal and protect the meat by cooling it quickly. Aging and transporting to a cooler are discussed. An illustrated guide shows skinning and butchering. Authors offer step-by-step instructions for jerking, canning, and freezing. Diagrams show butcher and drugstore wrap methods for freezing meat. Also includes whole meal cooking tips with recipes for main dishes, herbs, sauces, and desserts. Translates carcass weights into expected meat cuts. Includes nutritional data on calories, protein, and fat content of game meat.
