Butchering Roadkill

Gutted, opened up overnight and most of a cool day, the process begins.

A gift from our sheriff’s department and game warden.  A pair were hit in front of the house but were in good shape.  I took one and the driver took the other.

The hide was pulled off, not cut. This ensures a good product for brain tanning.  The blood and bruising here are the result of the car wreck.  This part is usually bloodless.

Most of the left side was in good shape. The rest was cooked lightly and saved for the dogs. They will eat like queens for weeks.
