The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership & Bass Pro Shops have teamed up with Steven Rinella, host of the show MeatEater on the Sportsman Channel, to serve you up a weekly helping of conservation: http://www.trcp.org/community/conservation-field-notes
Many folks feel overwhelmed when they are hunting on public lands and they get a deer or elk down on the ground in a place that is a mile or more from the nearest road. At this distance, dragging an animal out is too much work and game carts are often impractical.
If, like most folks, you don’t have the luxury of owning livestock, you need to pack the animal out on your back. To do so, you must understand how to quarter an animal into manageable, packable pieces.
Watch and learn as Steven Rinella outlines the basic steps for getting the job done.

I urge anyone who loves MeatEater–or, for that matter, anyone who loves hunting and fishing and eating wild game–to hurry over and check out the first of our Conservation Field Notes videos. We are making these videos in conjunction with the non-profit Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, which received vital sponsorship backing from Bass Pro Shops. The reason that the MeatEater team chose to work with TRCP is summed up nicely by that organization’s rallying cry: Guaranteeing You a Place to Hunt and Fish. We love them for it, and because they wage a nonstop battle for wild lands conservation, day-in and day-out. What’s more, they’re not afraid to take unpopular stances when they know it’s the right thing to do for hunters and anglers. The aim of these Conservation Field Notes is simple: to alert you about specific issues that are imminent threats to our hunting and fishing lands, and to tell you how to join in the battle. So please, get your little butts over to http://www.trcp.org/community/conservation-field-notes. You owe it to yourself and to your kids. –Steven Rinella
