New NDA Video: How to Easily Debone Venison for Travel in CWD Zones

Avoiding transportation of deer carcasses out of CWD zones helps prevent the spread of chronic wasting disease into new areas, and the National Deer Association has released a new video helping deer hunters debone their venison for safe, legal travel.

The new video, available on NDA’s YouTube channel at, was created in partnership with The Bearded Buck of Pennsylvania. NDA Chief Conservation Officer Kip Adams processes a doe harvested at The Bearded Buck property while teaching techniques for skinning and deboning venison.

“Whether you’re hunting deer in the early season in warm temperatures or hunting a CWD management zone where carcass transportation is restricted, it’s a useful skill to be able to quickly skin, quarter and de-bone venison for easy and legal transportation,” said Adams. “If you hunt in a chronic wasting disease (CWD) zone, it’s critical to prevent the spread of disease to new areas by leaving the carcass in the CWD zone where you harvested the deer.

In the video, Adams shows all the steps on how to process efficiently, effectively and safely according to CWD guidelines. The new video will help deer hunters go from field to freezer in no time.
