    Done loads, you can tear the meat on the hock very easy if you don't tease it with the knife in a couple of places.

    Does are a bit easier but I shoot nearly all Bucks, the only thing I have found is to turn off the chillier a couple of hours before I make a start.

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    Yep, these were both bucks and I did tear the hocks. Thanks, Tim, I'll try letting them warm a bit first next time.

    I now live in the middle of muntjac country so I suppose I'd better get used to it. All I can say is they better taste absolutely bleeding fantastic.

    I always skin them whilst they are still warm, which is much easier.

    There is hope, you will get quicker.

    Best tip I was given was to hang for 20 days not 7 as I had been. Venison still lovely and skinning time difference between short and long hang is about 30 minutes. Skinning much easier after the longer hang.
