    Yep Thats it alright MLN... great Book

    Vinegar cleans the unwanted stuff of the meat and acts as a disinfectent aids in the drying of silver skin.. Water is a breading ground for Bacteria and Mold.. I use a 50/ 50 mix and then a last stright wipe down

    All in all, pretty happy with how it all turned out and I'll be having some great meals later this week
    well sadly not as many. For the new doit yourself processer. The Book MLN posted is a great guide. been doing it years befor I got the book, wish i had it when i started...

    Now Please Take the time to get all the meat off your hard earned Kill.. You will be shocked the 1st time you take the time to strip off all the Neck / Rib meat..if you do not have a grinder your local butcher will, and be happy to grind it for you...Just put up 22 lbs of sausage because we took the time..
    It's all fun an games till you put that big boy on the ground.. now its time to get to work

    First off, I wanna say Im glad You hung it up by the hind quarters, and not the head...it annoys me soo much seeing hunters hang deer up by the head...second, for your first time, that was impressive to say the least...good job! 3rd, just find something that works for you to get it done as fast as possible...im not a big fan of messing with the neck and ribs...i live on a farm, so the kitties outside get a little treat when we drag the remaining carcass outside the barn...

    Another really good book on processing, whether this is new for you or you have done it dozens of times, is one called "Gut it, Cut it, Cook it"
    Here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Gut-Cut-Cook-P.../dp/1440203709
    It also comes with a DVD that has some great recipes.

    looks like a good one too..Dose it show how to cut the large diameter steak of the hind quarter.... that is so tasty every cut is oh so tender...even from larger bucks... good luck to you MLN

    we can only get 1 buck 1 doe and a possible 3rd if you apply for the right tags... never get that 3rd tag, dang it... so its 1 deer for the wife (done) 2 for me (not yet) 1 for the boy (he missed) and now 1 for the ole man this year (not yet) next year it will be 2 for him and go for that 3rd. so even if we all tag out its still only what some of you guys get on your 1 tag...so we alway strip um clean forget the cat's the can go catch a mouse...
