MDC to Host Deer Processing Virtual Program This Month


Once a hunter has bagged a deer, the work is only half over.

Hunters interested in learning how to process their deer will have an opportunity to do so at a Missouri Department of Conservation’s “Field to Freezer” virtual program from 8:30-11:30 a.m. on October 23.

This program is open to all ages.

At this free event, MDC Conservation Educator Lyle Whittaker will provide tips on how to field dress, skin, and butcher a harvested deer.

For those who want to butcher their deer, this clinic will show how to turn a harvested deer into neat packages of lean and healthy meat.

Other topics covered will be supplies needed and regulations that pertain to stored venison.
