After an animal was killed, it was dragged to a butchering area. There, the beasts were cut up by men and women working together. Besides cutting up the meat, the butchers cracked open bones to get the marrow.In the spring the animals were starting to shed their winter coats. This made their skins less desirable for clothing. However, by the fall hunt, as the animals moved back south, their coats would be heavy and available just in time to make warm winter clothing.
