Metro Wire Staff

Learn how to process and cook big game at a UWSP workshop offered by Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program.

“Wild Game Cooking” will be offered Wednesday, Dec. 11, from 5:30-8 p.m. in the CPS Café, located on the first floor of the College of Professional Studies building, 1901 Fourth Ave., Stevens Point.

The workshop is open to adults 18 and older, hunters and non-hunters alike. Space is limited to 20 participants in this BOW-signature program, designed specifically for women. The registration fee is $25 and includes all equipment, supplies, door prizes and printed resources to take home.

Participants will learn methods of processing big game and recipes for each cut. Venison from a locally harvested whitetail deer will be used in the hands-on cooking workshop. Participants will also learn about cuts of meat through an interactive butchering demonstration.

“BOW provides a safe learning environment where participants can try new activities, build confidence, and learn about the outdoors,” said BOW director Peggy Farrell.

BOW gives participants the opportunity to discover new experiences in a supportive environment.
