Feral, the commercial kitchen and butcher space at 2002 Southern Oaks Drive in South Austin, is hosting its second year of fall hunting and butchery classes.

Year-round, Feral allows people to rent kitchen space, where they can break down or grind larger cuts of meat, as well as make things like sausage or stock — but these culinary hunt weekends offer new hunters the opportunity to learn how to harvest meat in the first place. The two-day culinary hunts take place at Bar W Ranch in Calvert, a 4,000-acre ranch about an hour and a half from Austin, followed by classes on breaking down and processing the game at the Feral workspace.

The cost ($950) includes lodging and meals and a harvest of one doe or pig per person. You must be 21 years of age or older, have a current Texas hunting license, hunter’s education card and a seasoned rifle of at least .243 caliber. The available weekends are Nov. 14-15, Dec. 5-6 and Jan. 2-3. For more information, email chris@feralaustin.com.
