Whats It about

Deer have been in our landscape a very long time, this course aims to explain there past, present and future in our landscape at the same time as learning how to process a large deer. We'll look at how deer evolved us as opposed to the other way round. How our interaction with the world around us was often a result of the species we encountered and how our tool sets and the way we gathered food changed in direct relation to the different species around the world humans encountered. 

Theres never been so many deer in our woodlands and forests, beautiful and magistic animals that have always had a huge impression on our anscestors livestyles, we can see this in the art of messalithic peoples to the banners of the middle ages. A ever present in our history. If done properly this can be a sustainable food source with the welfare of the animal at the forefront of your mind.

Reviews

Francis Gimblett 

"I attended the deer butchery course in December and found it thoroughly fascinating. The way it was delivered was fun, practical and very instructive. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone interesting in knowing where their food comes from and especially this rare and healthy meat. I will be eating venison more often, content knowing that it's the healthiest meat available, from animals that have led a natural existence. Great Job Phil and the team.!"
