Special Note:

As with any wild game meat, proper handling of the meat is imperative. Proper field dressing is extremely important. Make sure to keep your wild game meat as clean as possible in the field.

Protect your meat from warm temperatures, dirt, insects and all birds. 

These precautions help with the overall quality of the final meat products, steaks and roasts.

To Begin:

Remove your roast from the freezer the day before you are planning to cook it.  Thaw your roast in the refrigerator.
