Video shows how to dress a deer correctly

MONTPELIER — Making the most of the meals provided by deer taken in hunting seasons starts with processing them quickly and correctly, which is why the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department has three online videos demonstrating how to process deer. Finding the videos is easy on the Fish and Wildlife website, Click on “Hunt” and then “From Field to Freezer.”
The educational videos are titled “Field Dressing Your Deer,” “Skinning a Deer” and “Butchering a Deer.”
“Correctly processing game can make a big difference in the taste of the meat,” said Nicole Meier, an information and education specialist with the department. “Taking the time to do it correctly assures that you and your family will have many enjoyable meals ahead.”
Vermont is one of the most rural states in the country, and Vermonters have a proud heritage of living close to the land. Hunting is highly regulated and provides a way to connect with the land, connect with nature and connect with a healthy, sustainable food source that is rooted in Vermont.
