Recently one of our guests demonstrated his gear and his expert technique of field dressing his animal. It was impressive to see how well prepared he was. He always carries a back pack with his water and emergency food but along with that he carries a very lightweight but extremely effective kit to skin and dress an animal in the bush. It was very light but had everything he needed to achieve a great outcome and keep his meat (and himself) clean .
There are the obvious tools for skinning but also lightweight disposable gloves, an emergency survival blanket to put on the ground to keep everything clean, some plastic bags to put various parts in, some hooks for hanging, and even water to wash hands or finished products. There was also muslin fabric bags to keep the flies away. One essential piece of advice was make sure everything is bright orange so you don't lose your valuable knives in the grass
Milani is an 8000 acre property located on the New England tablelands of NSW. Much of the land is preserved as natural bush and abounds in wildlife of great diversity but also unfortunately feral animals. Wal and Lynne love living where they live and in order to preserve its natural beauty they manage the land to improve soils and vegetation and encourage others to come and enjoy the natural surrounds through trout fishing, bird watching, bush walking and bow hunting for feral animals.
Come and stay with us and let us know what you think of our part of the world.
