If you’re a long-time hunter, you know the key to good flavor at the table is how you handle big-game in the field. If you’re new to hunting, now there’s another place you can learn. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is now offering a ‘Big-game processing workshop’ where you can learn how to handle the animal after the shot.
Big-game processing workshop in Montrose, Aug. 23
MONTROSE, Colo. – Do you know how to prepare a big game animal after the hunt? Making sure an animal is field-dressed properly and then processed for consumption is a critical part of hunting in Colorado.
If you’re new to big game hunting or if you want to brush up on game-processing skills, plan to attend an evening seminar, 6-9 p.m., Aug 23, at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife office in Montrose, 2300 S. Townsend Ave. (U.S. Hwy. 550)
The seminar will cover how to cut a big-game animal into manageable pieces in the field, and then how to cut, wrap and freeze meat for storage when you get home.
The session is free, but space is limited; please call CPW’s Montrose office to sign up at 970-252-6000.
