First let me say great thread. Have a question. Ive never seen the parts so clearly labled so Ive always winged it not knowing how the hind legs are supposed to be seperated. Ive never payed attention to how many pecies I end up with I just always take off every sliver of silver on something thats going to be steaks or roast. In the last pic before wraping for freezer the Sirloin or front of round has a white vein on the right side. Isnt that more silver? I believe Ive seperated that and anything looking like that and removed. Am I being too picky? Is that a thin peice that doesnt matter or am I looking at that wrong and isnt what Im thinking?

Nothing is really to picky when butchering. I to separate the muscles and remove all silver. If I want to make a ham then I won't go so far. It's all about want amount of time you want to put in and the results you want.

When trimming out the sirloin, there is one group of three muscles that together are shaped kind a like a whole turkey breast, this group I leave together and cross cut it into steaks about 3/4" to 1" thick. Other than the tenderloin, this is the best cut of the deer. The thin membrane holding it all together isn't any problem. Usually when I grill, I do a package of 4 butterflied loin chops and package of two sirloin steaks and my wife and daughter would eat the chops and I would get the steaks, well a while back my daughter accidentally grab one of my steaks, now I have to fight her for them. I tried to keep the sirloins as my little secret, but no longer.

I'm not an inspiration; It's just the situation I'm in and I'm doing my best......

this is a good step by step process, I have only butchered one deer and this is the best described way to seperate the front and hind quarters

This really is a useful article. I have processed my own deer for years. How much different would it be for other animals?

I don't use the cling wrap i use veggie bags real thin plastic cheap easy to get the air out. Other wise i say it looks like my work there.
I built a counter and a bar in the garage to process animals. we can and have slapped whole skinned hog up on the counter
