Deer In A Day

On this private mid-week one day course we'll take you through the skinning and butchery of deer in the field and send you home with all of the resulting meat for the freezer.

We'll separate the main joints and cuts and show you how to make venison jerky.  As we like to make use of the whole animal we'll also take you through the initial scraping of the hide before tanning, removing the sinews for strong bindings, using the bones and antlers for tools and show you many of the uses for those deer by-products.

At the end of the day all your prepared venison will be packaged up to take away and freeze when you get home to feed you and your family for some time afterwards.

The cost of the course covers up to two people plus one whole deer.  The cost will increase if you would rather have a deer each or a larger group.  

Please enquire for mid-week availability and to make a booking.

Course starts at 9am and finishes around 5pm.  Please bring a packed lunch and your own cool box with ice packs.

Deer butchery is also covered during the Wild Food & Cooking Autumn Weekend.
