I shot an 8pt and a doe today. 8 pt was 5 on one side and 3 on the other . My hunting buddy also shot a nice 7 pt. Due to the warm weather we brought them home and started the butchering process. I skin the deer and take the back straps, tenderloins, and rumps out. My question is there is usually hair on the meat once I cut it out. I have heard of guys skinning and then using a torch to burn any hair on the meat then quarter. Is this effective and what are the downfalls of the method?
After I quarter my meat I rinse the meat with cold water and allow to sit and dry in the air and then package in ziplocks for freezing. I did this last year and it worked out well. Is there any problem with the water rinse as long as the meat is fairly dry before freezing?
i skin my deer then wash it with a hose inside and out to get any nasties off and then let it hang and drip dry for a good while then wipe with distilled vinegar just a little and dry for about 30 min the butcher
