Deer Processing from Field to Table – With over 25 years of experience as a Purdue Extension Educator, Jonathan Ferris, joined by Dave Osborne – a 30-year Purdue Extension Educator, conduct award-winning series of venison processing workshops across Indiana where they have taught audiences how to butcher deer quickly and easily at home. These workshops show everything from the skinning process to quartering and deboning of the deer. In this seminar, Ferris and Osborne will demonstrate an abbreviated version of the deboning technique they use on a deer shoulder and hind quarter. Joining Jonathan and Dave in this seminar is Abbi Smith, a Purdue Extension Health & Human Sciences Educator from Putnam County, who will discuss proper cooking techniques, food safety when working with wild game, and deer health considerations.
