I'm not sure. I would think there would be info on how to do this on the internet. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

NOT even close to being economical.Gear alone costs more then what I spend at the grocers meat section for meat that is already butchered.Not to mention the extra freezer to store the stuff that none of us but dh will eat.

I wish we could get a Buffalo. It's so lean. It's a once in a lifetime hunt in Utah! I wish I could get one from Maddox's connections.

There's a buffalo ranch in central utah that we've gotten a buffalo from before. It's not cheap, but it's wonderful meat.

Economical? Well, no. Not really. In fact, not even close. But the skills gained will be priceless if civilization really hits the fan. The time to get good at hunting is BEFORE it's the only way to get meat.

Economical? I think it's the most expensive meat we ever eat.

wanted to add my .02 c here. I think it most definitely IS economical if done right!!!---How much GEAR do you need?!!

when we got married hubby already had the guns, the orange clothes...I have gotten him new "boots" since being married but those are all around useful. how much of an investment are the other things really if you are going to be hunting for years?!! - if the GOAL is to be economical then it can be done. They can hunt locally on close by land (depending on where you live- and now you have to be drawn - -

We have a local butcher butcher the meat but it is pretty cost effective when I compare it to the other grass-fed meats we eat.... I think in the end it cost us about $1.50/lb for the deer meat we got (tag price, + butchering)- super worth it to me---
I also purchase a 1/4 or 1/2 grass-fed cow at times and even with that being a better deal than in stores I still pay about $3.50-$4 a lb------
When I made a roast--I pull a beef and a vennison one and cook together and mix altogether.
I do the same thing with ground beef-- 1/2 and 1/2 and it makes it even more cost effective!

- also it's super easy to make your own jerkey (pending you have a dehydrator--which we already did) ---
