Working up a deer
« on: March 03, 2005, 09:24:07 PM »
How many of you take your kill to a butcher?  I've always done them myself, but I'm hearing more and more talk about just paying to have them worked up.

I do all of our deer processing. :mrgreen:That way I can get the cuts that my family likes. ^-^But here about two years ago I had to put a limit on the deer I was cutting up . Because everyone in our neighborhood that deer hunts wanted me to do their deer for free. Family is fine but , and a few choice friends. I used to work as a meat cutter. I make tenderloins butterflied, steaks tenderized the only thing I couldn't do is grind the meat for deer burger.  Two years ago I cut up 44 deer for friends and it didn't leave me much time for me to hunt :sad:

I had my one and only done but proably not the next one.I have alterior motives for working in the grocery meat dept.Besides making a living,I watch,ask questions and learn.That with a little reading from the library, I think I can handle it.I can still eat my mistakes.Just don't seem right to pay someone esle to do what I can do for myself.
Not enough people in this world willing to get their hands dirty(bloody) and be self sufficient.

Our family does all their own. We bought a saw and grinder from a butcher shop going out of buseness years ago and that sure makes it easier. This way we make the cuts we want and the rest gets ground up for bugers and sausage. The father in law has a smoke house and he does a real good job on the sausage. It sure dont take to long to process a deer when ya have a hand full of people doing it together.l
We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the coarse of history.

We used to always cut our own meat and had a very bad experience with one butcher shop, so we went back to cutting up our own deer. Now, though, I think we will try to find a different shop to cut our meat.

I do all of mine.  That way, I know what the meat's been through and I know I've actually got MY meat.  That being said, I do take some of the ground meat to a processor to have sausage, salami, and polish sausage made.

BTW, my other grinder quit, so this past fall I went to Lowe's and got a new one.  The grinder did up two deer this past fall without a problem.  The griner was only about $100 too.  Good deal for what it can do.
The only purpose of bread is to hold meat!

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

I do my own too. Sometimes I make roasts, other times I use the meat for jerky. Only thing about the jerky is it gets eaten up so fast.  :'(
Neck shots = no running.

cmcrackshot, your dad really does butcher a lot of deer. He will need that sharpener I gave him last time he was here.  Hey, it's really great to have you here, along with your dad, of course. We have to have some new members to pick on! :wink:  :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
