Ethical hunters not only make a clean kill, they don't waste what they kill. So that means taking care of the meat.
It's against the law to waste game meat. If you harvest an animal, it is your responsibility to remove and care for the meat.
Start preparing before you go into the field. Get in shape and be ready to carry heavy loads over rough terrain. Be sure you know how to field dress an animal. Numerous books and web sites are available to provide explanations. If you will be hunting with someone who is inexperienced, teach them the proper techniques.
