Carcass and Butchery Course

The aim of this course is to equip the candidate with the knowledge, understanding, skills and awareness required to undertake basic skills in home butchery of a deer carcass. It is an ideal course aimed at the beginner or novice stalker to improve butchery skills. This is a one day course which will provide the novice or less experienced stalker with a sound foundation of knowledge. Safety and basic hygiene legislation will be dealt with in a classroom situation moving on to the larder carcass preparation area for the practical aspects which will deal with  basic butchery techniques.

The course will offer the candidate the chance to butcher a carcass under the direct guidance and supervision of the course tutor(s). There will also be some time for discussion and explanations of the course and associated subjects.

“The trainer had an excellent instruction technique. Passed on the required skills in a professional manner.”

“The class size was ideal and the contents great. It was a pleasant surprise to have half a carcass to take home. What was not anticipated was some excellent culinary advice with the trainer cooking 2 quick dishes using the venison for the class as a little taster. The trainer had plenty of time for us and some of us chatted with him for quite a while when the class had finished and he seemed to be in no rush to end it all.
In 2 words, the trainer went the “extra mile” with his course and is clearly a great enthusiast for his subject.”
