    I learned a lot from my dad but some was learned on here and some self taught. We always used the gutless method growing up and I remember helping wrap and debone quarters when I was a youngster. I enjoy it and I like my boys seeing me do it. They're still a little small to get involved but will watch me until they get bored.

    My dad, he would use 95% of the deer and or elk that I brought home.

    He would of consider the gutless method wanton waste of good game meat. Just for the amount of meat left on the bones. He would make soup out of the bones and my mom made a fantastic boiled BBQ sauce flavored soup with the ribs where the meat would just fall off of the bones and be as tender as toilet paper, it was to die for. The hocks were thrown into the soup pot with beans and some bacon. I never did hear of ground game meat, all the trimmings was put into packages labeled either fry meat or stew.

    I pack the hocks out, but haven't ever done a soup with them.

    There are a few people who still do the rib roll thing in some places.

    Self taught also with a lot of trial and error! I messed up big time on making my own sausage and ruined about 30lbs of meat but I'm slowly trying to work myself back into it.

    I grew up helping the family process our own hogs, cows, sheep, chickens etc., as well as, cutting our own elk, deer and bear. I can't remember exactly when I learned, but Dad and Mom must have been the teachers. All six of us kids had to help with the meat processing just like anything else in our house. I've kind of customized my own methods, but it's still real similar to the original process I've been doing all along. I take great pride in changing peoples minds that say they don't like wild game. I can't remember one person that tried our home processed game that didn't really like it.

    I love sharing game with people who have never had it!

    Dad had us clean everything we killed at a young age his motto was you kill it you clean it and eat it. This reminds me of when i was about 8 years old i went with my dad deer hunting but i couldn't keep up with him so he left me at a large cactus patch with a 410 single shot and a pocket full of shells a canteen of water and a P&J sandwich 4hr later him came back to find a pile of Rabbits at least 30 i was so proud of my day of hunting Dad just smiled and loaded the rabbits in he pack and we went home i was up tell midnight cleaning cold stinky rabbits. Dad taught me how to butcher and try to be more selective on what i kill.
    processing animals that iv harvested brings me much joy thanks to my Dad
