Cut and rap here is 40-50CDN bucks max. They charge a flat fee C&R on deer. Sausage is different of course but I got a doe done all sausage and vac sealed last fall for 130CDN bucks. I usually do the butcher myself when i want some straps etc and then just take in the grinder meat which saves some cash.

I just paid $60 for the basic butchering and an additional $32 to have all but the loins, 4 roasts, and the steaks made into summer sausage. I should have a mess of summer sausage, but I'll trade some of that for my buddy's burger.

I have talked to the wife about how expensive it is and shouldn't we think of doing it ourselves since I can get two a year here in Nebraska. She is still holding to the "no mess, no fuss, done right" slogan and that wants me to still take it them to the butcher, regardless of cost. I'm going into PA to hunt with my dad and uncle and they are gonna give me a thorough butchering lesson, though. They have been doing it all their lives.

I cut the backstrap's into steak and can the rest,by canning it ,it keep's longer than freezing it and it dont lose it's flavor, can it with a few potatoe's and onion's a lil red pepper's and green, carrot's and all you got to do when you get hungry is open and warm it up

Skinned, quartered, aged, boned, cut, wrapped and frozen at home. Got a little station set up in the basement. It's a pain in the rear but well worth the trouble.<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

Jet man you may want to use freezer tape instead of the masking tape. It's made for the colder temps and wont let go like masking tape will..add another buck or two to your costs.

I cut my own up. Bought a grinder a few years ago and a vacuum sealer. Make my own jerky/sausage etc. Before we started doing our own we had an old butcher who would do it for us for 35$. He only did people he knew. After he became too ill to keep at it and we saw prices ranges $50-60 we decided to learn to do our own.

Some things are true whether you believe them or not.

I process my own deer. Several reasons, 1. I don't trust any one to screw it up, when I've worked so hard to get it, plus I've heard some real horror stories. 2. I enjoy it, something about taking one, cleaning, cutting, and turning that raw meat into a delicous meal with my own two hands. just my thoughts.
