That's the exact way I was taught...you're not from Wisconsin are you?

Only thing I would add is to take the liver as well...I get it made into liver sausage its amazing! When I was a kid we would get moose liver made into sausage. I think an average Alaskan-Yukon Moose liver is close to 12 pounds which makes about 25lbs of liver sausage! Makes for good holiday gifts.

Nope, not from wisconsin... Kentucky originally, Military took me around the world and dumped me in Wa.  I've always been hesitant about liver, but I was never a huge fan of calves liver and onions as a kid, so that may be part of it.

Hi Axle,

Do you have this in doc format?  I had it once, but had a system crash.

Yes! I will send this to anyone who wants it. Use it however you want. Teach this to the younger generation and practice it yourself.
Just PM me with a direct email address and I will send it to you in a word doc.

Do you teach hunters Ed? Please use this if you do. I would be thrilled.

Mike D and Galpster came over a few days ago and I grilled a burger for them. They both said it was the best deer burger they had ever had. One of the reasons is because it was processed immediately and had no repulsive gamey taste.

Stupid question but, is this leagal to do in the field?  If so, how do you prove sex?  I was under the impression that genitals or antlers must remain intact to a portion of the carcas.  Am I missing something?

Also, does this affect the aging?  I assume you just age the cuts like you would a hanging deer, correct?

Yes it's legal and yes you must leave evidence of sex attached to a portion of the meat.

This is the law that addresses it:

Quote
WAC 232-12-267 No agency filings affecting this section since 2003 
Field identification of wildlife Evidence of sex Definitions.
  (1) It is unlawful to possess or transport game birds unless the feathered heads are left attached to the carcass, except falconry caught birds, until the carcass is processed and/or stored for consumption.

     (2) It is unlawful to possess or transport big game animals unless evidence of the sex of the animal remains naturally attached to the carcass until the carcass is processed and/or stored for consumption.

     (a) Evidence of sex means the head with antlers or horns attached or penis or testes of male big game animals or the head or udder of female big game animals any of which must be naturally attached to at least one quarter of the carcass or to the largest portion of meat.

     (b) For the purpose of this rule, "stored for consumption" means at the final point of storage prior to consumption of the meat.

     (3) It is unlawful to possess or transport goat, sheep, moose, deer or elk taken in hunting areas which have horn or antler restrictions unless the head or skull plate, with both horns or both antlers naturally attached, accompanies the carcass.

     (4) The possession of a taxidermist's receipt which includes the taxidermist's name, address, and telephone number, the hunter's name, address, telephone number, license, and tag number, the species and sex of the game bird or big game animal taken, as well as antler points or horn size and the date and GMU location or special deer/elk permit area where taken, shall be deemed to constitute compliance with this section.

     For the purpose of this rule "accompanies the carcass" means to remain with the carcass until it has reached the point of processing or storage.

     (5) It is lawful for persons who have complied with the department of fish and wildlife's chronic wasting disease sampling program to possess deer and elk without proof of sex under the following provisions:

     (a) The head of the deer or elk must have been surrendered to an authorized department collection site.

     (b) The hunter is in possession of an official department disease testing program identification card, completely filled out and signed and dated by a department employee or authorized agent.

     (c) The carcass of the deer or elk is transported directly from where the head has been surrendered to the point of processing or storage.

     Failure to comply with (a) through (c) of this subsection constitutes unlawful possession of big game and is punishable under RCW 77.15.410.

If I bone it in the field, is this considered processed?

No, processed would be when the meat is cut into steaks and ground into hamburger, and then packaged for the freezer.

The meat will age just fine when it is boned-out. I process it immediately in most cases though.

If you age it, just make sure it is in good bags that bugs can't get into it. Yellow jackets and hornets are notorious for chewing the game bags and getting into the meat.

Note - you may be cited in some other states like Iowa for "illegal field butchering" using this method.   Just a heads up.

But it is legal in Washington, correct?
