New and seasoned hunters can learn to properly field dress and process their deer and other wild game in a workshop offered by the Missouri Department of Conservation in Kirksville. The free program will be held on November 2nd, from 5:30 – 8:30 pm.
The location is the MDC’s Northeast Regional Office, 3500 S. Baltimore Road in Kirksville and will take place in an unheated shop building so participants should dress for the weather.
This workshop, designed for ages 11-years and older, will cover the field dressing process and demonstrate how to skin and butcher a game animal in simple steps, with minimal equipment. Participants will learn the steps necessary to process wild game, including skinning, quartering, and identifying cuts of meat, as well as tips on getting the best quality meat from your deer.
Space is limited and you must preregister by going to mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/174719.
In order to ensure the safety of all participants and staff, everyone must wear a mask covering their mouth and nose while inside the shop building. Participants must also practice physical distancing of at least six feet from anyone who does not live in their same household.
