Default How to field dress a Buffalo

I thought that some of you might be interested in seeing how this is done in Africa. The thing to remember is that nothing goes to waste in Africa. The only parts left on the site when the guys were done were a couple of hundred pounds of stomach contents and the blood that soaked into the ground. Everything else is taken back to camp to eat or gets sent out to the local villages.

First you cut the skin behind the last rib. I am getting a shoulder mount done so they were really careful with the hide.

Then you use an axe to break the spine and connecting tissue at the ribs.

Then the guts literally come rolling out. The big white mass is the stomach and there is a couple of hundred pounds of partially digested grass in there that gets taken out and all the internal organs are set aside for later.

With the front exposed, one of the guys crawls inside to get out the lungs heart and windpipe, trachea, etc.

This what the lungs look like when a 300 grain TSX destroys the back half of one and blows a hole in the other.

Then everything gets loaded in the truck. Yes, it takes 6 guys to load the front half.

That's a lot of meat!


I misread that... I thought it was going to be a picture of a buffalo in a dress and I thought "Rosie O'Donnell doesn't wear dresses...".

I imagine you "could" if you happened to have a front-end loader handy with which to move the big SOB.

Buffalo is a bit different than beef. It's pretty close, but just has a certain taste that you can tell it's not cow.

Awsome Fjold. I am on my way to Montana for prairie dogs. I will show you how I field dress a pdog at a 100 yards with a .223. Same principal, just alot faster and I don't have to get my hands dirty.

Great pics by the way of your buff.
