The Mrs.and I did our own processing one year...never agian
u are getting old m8 lol
As I have mentioned, hunting here seems a little different to States side....we generally have to carry the beast, be it a deer or a Captain cooker out Even getting back to a chooper is usually a mission...hence often its partly butched in the feild... Goats are not the same weight or bulk.
On the other hand having a tradesman butcher teaching how to cut a beast up makes a huge difference.... "count the ribs, 3rd up slice there and there, bend that ... see snaps off..." type of thing... and having the hooks, pullies, and most important the quailty of knives in the correct condition...
Basically what comes home is what gets packaged...except for the pelt... so next to nothing gets thrown out.
And damn near everything is butched hanging... not on table
Oh here is a Snapper I caught couple weeks ago.. biggest snapper yet .. just under 17lbs.
These are not good for eating , so was returned to the sea.....got it on 6kg line.
