BOW Program Offers Wild Game Processing Workshops December 19, 2023 The UWSP-sponsored outreach education program Becoming an Outdoors -Woman will host two workshops in January on deer processing. Are you interested in having a deeper connection with nature through harvesting your own food? The Wisconsin Becoming an Outdoors – Woman (BOW) program is offering a deer processing workshop, Saturday, Jan. 13, and a wild game cooking class, Sunday, Jan. 14. The workshops will be held from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Food + Farm Exploration Center, 3400 Innovation Drive, Plover. Lessons will be taught by experienced hunters who put time and respect into harvesting and preparing wild game. Lead instructors are certified in the safe handling of food. Lunch will be provided. Wild game offers diversity in flavors and nutrition and can be the most local form of food. In the first class, participants will be guided in a step-by-step process of how to break down a deer. Sunday’s class will give hands-on experience preparing wild game – venison, wild turkey, duck, pheasant, rabbit, and squirrel – through a variety of cooking methods. There is a $125 fee per workshop. A $35 discount is provided when you sign up for both. For more information, detailed flyers with secure online registration links can be found at https://www3.uwsp.edu/cnr-ap/bowWI/Pages/Events.aspx, or by searching WI BOW Events. Workshops are designed primarily for women and are learning opportunities for anyone 18 years or older. Participants range in age from 18-80+. BOW is a non-profit outreach education program at UWSP and supported by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
