Question for those who do not field dress their deer

Postby lekkkk » Sat Dec 08, 2012 7:08 pm

When you harvest a deer and transport it home, do you normally dress it like most i.e. incision down the sternum then up the throat, remove entrails (tie off bung hole) and finally skin it?

I ask this because my family, who are Vietnamese, bust out the large torch and burn the hair off the deer first before we do any cutting.

I'm thinking this helps reduce the game taste. I know people use this process with wild hog as well. Maybe it's a regional thing? Any thoughts/opinions as to why one method would be better/worse than the other, preference wise, etc... Thanks!

That is most DEFINETLY a CULTURAL thing more so than a regional thing. I don't know a single American hunter that would burn off the hair BEFORE skinning game. The ONLY reason it's done overseas is because most cultures that do that in the first place aren't skinning it before they just go and lay it on the fire to cook as it is. Why biurn off the hair if you're going to skin it? That makes zero sense and more work and btw, it does not reduce any "gamy" taste. All it's going to do is stink up the place with the smell of burned hair. Though now I see why the Duria fruit is so popular among Southeast asians... :no:
