Avian Influenza (Bird Flu) and the Hunter




The reality is that Avian Influenza may well reach the Continental United States this year, while we may not be able to stop the spread of the Bird Flu, you can ensure that any wild birds you take are handled and prepared in a manner that minimizes your risks. With some common sense precautions you can ensure your safety and prevent contracting any diseases, including the Bird Flu. It is worth noting that so far the only people that have contracted the bird flu are those that are in contact with birds on a daily basis.

Field Dressing Birds

  • Do not handle birds that are obviously sick or birds found dead.
  • Wear rubber or disposable latex gloves while handling and cleaning game, wash hands with soap and water, and thoroughly clean knives, equipment and surfaces that come in contact with game.
  • Do not eat, drink, or smoke while handling or cleaning birds.



    Preparing your bird

  • Wash hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food;
  • Prevent cross-contamination by keeping raw meat, poultry, fish, and their juices away from other foods;
  • After cutting raw meats, wash cutting board, knife, and counter tops with hot, soapy water;
  • Sanitize cutting boards by using a solution of 1 teaspoon chlorine bleach in 1 quart of water; and
  • Use a food thermometer to ensure food has reached the safe internal temperature--in all parts of the bird. Cook poultry to at least 165 degrees F to kill food borne germs that might be present, including the avian influenza virus.
