Aim

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.
