cause it would get real expensive to keep paying a butcher.
PLus despite being a lot of work, I don't mind it and feel its just all part of the deal.

My nephewhas processed his owndeer but I find itis easierto have it professionally done as I usually have some of it made into speciality products like summer sausage, brats and bacon.

Question for you guys that process your own, How did you learn?. Is there a good book or movie out there that you would recommend?

My cousin processes it for us at our house and if we have more than one deer we'll process one while he processes the other watching him as he goes and doing the same thing.

I do. It's cheaper and cleaner. I've heard some butcher shop nightmares and even "kinda" had one myself the only time I took mine to a shop. Mine dad taught me.....we've been butchering everything from cows to turkeys for years

I think thegoing price for the butcher around here is over a $100
Besides that, it's fun.

we usually process are own. the backstraps are easy. grinding hamburger meat can be a pain in the butt. cutting jerky strips can also be a pain but very rewarding (i love jerky)...its cheaper, flat out.
