How to butcher deer

Sean @ Everything Hunting has written detail instructions on how to butcher deer yourself.

The price of butchering a deer ranges from $75-150. I don’t know about you, but that is a little much when you can butcher your own for free in about 4 hours. If you are content with paying someone so that you don’t have to worry about it then you have more money than me.

  • Butchering your own deer is easy and a lot cheaper after some initial purchases. You will need a good set a knives, a heavy table, a grinder, and possibly a smoker. Some of those things will cost large dollars but well worth it over a lifetime of your hunting. Just do some reading on the internet on the steps to take and you will be well on your way to saving lots of money. Good luck.
