Bearded Butcher. Field Dress a Deer

So you’ve got your catch of a deer and now it’s time to prepare your harvest for dragging or carrying home. Getting it ready and dressing it in the field is a bit of an art but once you learn you will easily get it done. Field dress the animal properly will allow that meat to taste phenomenal, providing many flavorsome meals for a while.

Below I have added a video of Seth Perkins, from the Bearded Butchers in Creston Ohio, showing how to field dress a deer that he harvested. It is the first of 3 videos I have been given permission from Seth and Scott Perkins to add to my Latest Hunting Gear site.

This part one is on Field Dressing your Deer, part two is on Skinning the Deer and part three is on Deer Carcass Breakdown and Cutting Preparation.

Seth and Scott have a thriving butchering business where they supply the finest quality meats to their customers from a variety of meat types. They slaughter the stock themselves, cut and prepare for their customers and they also have their own brand of Bearded Butchers Spice Blend that home delivers across the states and internationally.

They have kindly given me permission to share their video and I strongly implore that you give their sites Bearded Butchers Spice Blends and White Feather Meats a visit and try out the fine products. These guys are real butchers and hunters with a real understanding on hunting and harvesting an animal with respect to using the whole item and not wasting any meat.

Below is the video with Seth showing step by step instructions explaining the process excellently.


I hope you enjoyed the detailed video from Seth and I’ve added a link for a great knife that you will need for dressing your next deer.

Buck 113 Ranger Knife is the one you should opt for and will do the job nicely. Weighing a total of 5.2 ounces with a measurement of 7.25 inches in length with a sturdy blade and compact in size, the Buck 113 Ranger Knife is manufactured in USA and this is a knife which has a sheath of genuine leather and a lanyard hole. This is a stylish and practical hunting knife and due to the highly proud integration of the product, this knife gives you a lifetime warranty. 

There are other brands you could use and you can find them on these pages:

Outdoor Edge Blades

Mossy Oak

and also other Hunting Knife Kits.

They will all be sharp so be sure to use safe handling and common sense when using any knife.
