Step-by-Step Guide to Skinning and Butchering Deer, Moose, Elk, and Other Large Animals
Skinning large animals such as deer, elk or moose can be intimidating if you are not familiar with the process; however, it is fairly easy once you get used to it. Start by making an incision along the underside of the animal that goes from neck to tail. Then make a cut perpendicular from this line up the center of the rib cage into the shoulder joint before peeling back both sides of the skin until it is completely separated from the carcass. Cut off the four legs and begin separating the meat from the bone until all edible parts have been removed.

No matter which recipe you go with make sure to cook your wild game at low temperatures so as not to dry out the meat.
Tips for Making Delicious Sausages From Your Catch
