The best way to learn to field dress big game is to help an experienced hunter with an animal.

Before the hunt, review the steps of field dressing.

If you have never field dressed a large-bodied game animal, purchase a copy of Field Care of Big Game, an instructional video published by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. This video shows you, step by step, how to field dress a moose, elk, or caribou, no matter how or where the animal has fallen. Contact the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Anchorage to order the video.

Cover game to avoid offending others.
When transporting game, be sure to keep it covered to avoid offending others.
