Default RE: Small Deer

I would agree about taking small deer for your table if you do the processing yourself. This guy did not. I am not sure what processing cost in your areas but where I am from, it is anywhere from $55 to $75 for straight butchering. Add in your license fees and equipment costs and that 59 lbs deer that will yeild about 20-25 lbs of meat just cost you about $5.00/lbs. You can buy a 1/2 beef for a lot less then that. I'd guess it was shooting just too be shooting. I see that alot more then apoor old guy that is scrapping dirt with the chickens to put food on his table. Just being honest.
