NorthWoods Stewardship Center and the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Conservation Group will co-host this workshop on Game Processing, led by Richard Breton, avid hunter and experienced butcher. Richard will lead participants through processing a large wild game animal, from skinning, knife handling, selecting cuts, and packaging. There will be many tips and techniques shared, covering hunting, field dressing, getting a big game animal out of the woods, hanging and aging game, freezing, thawing, and cooking. If the opportunity presents itself, handling, dressing and cooking small game will also be included.
