Great post Semi. Many folks have no idea what to expect on how much meat they'll get back. I've only ever taken one to a processor, never again. I'd never done sticks and summer sausage and had them do the whole deer for me. That was many years ago. The cuts I see come from the local butcher is enough to gross anyone out. And based on word from their employees, you likely wont even get the same deer back that you brought in. Thats wrong on so many counts. I do my own now, and have for years. As well as for friends and clients of the company I used to work for. It's really such an easy process once you learn what you're doing. Thanks for your post and helping inform the others! Enjoy the harvest!
