This is a short video that spanned a number of actions before and after shooting a fallow deer.


Reference: Aussie Bush Harvest on YouTube


Though it clearly was not meant to teach beginners or newbies to skinning and tanning a deer, the video was a good way to introduce other ways to get more from a deer than just meat.

The video starts out with the hunter able to spy on a resting deer, which he had a clear shot of. It was spooked at one point but continued to lie down on the grass. The hunter took the shot but missed! But the second shot he made right after found its mark.

In the next scene he was explaining his mistake on why he missed the first shot. He then went on to say what he intends to do with the beautiful spotted skin of the deer. He butchered the deer on the field getting the skin off perfectly and then the best cuts of meat.

In the last segment of the video he showed how he tried for the first time and successfully tanned the skin of the deer.
