Michigan DNR Offers Video on How to Quarter a Deer

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Division has produced an instructional video on how to quarter a deer and remove the tenderloins and backstraps.

In the narrated video, just more than eight minutes long, DNR wildlife biologist/pathologist Thomas Cooley demonstrates the process.

The Michigan DNR also reminds deer hunters, while buying their deer licenses this year, to take a moment to purchase Pure Michigan Hunt applications. Applications are on sale until December 31, and three winners will be randomly drawn in January 2016. Applications are $5 each, in unlimited quantities, and can be purchased at any license agent or online at E-License.

Pure Michigan Hunt winners receive licenses including elk, bear, spring and fall turkey, and antlerless deer and first pick at a managed waterfowl hunt area, all to be used in the 2016 hunting season. Along with the hunting licenses, each winner will receive a hunting prize package valued at more than $4,000!

All three Pure Michigan Hunt winners have the flexibility to hunt many different places.

“Life gets very busy, but because of the Pure Michigan Hunt’s ‘golden ticket,’ all three winners have the ability to pick and choose hunt areas and times so they are able to work these hunts into their everyday lives,” said Jordyn Richardson, DNR wildlife technician. “They also have the option to transfer a license to someone else.”
