Default Butchering your own

Just curious how many out there will be butchering their deer themselves this year. I'll start ... I definitely will be. I've read the tutorials, watched my wife's uncle do it and watched some other videos on it and figure why not - if I make some bad cuts, I'll just grind those up (unless their my fingers )

We've always done our own. One of my earlies memories was getting caught "boxing" a deer that was hanging in our garage. I saw the Rocky movie where he's training in the cooler and figured I might as well haha. Dad wasn't so happy. But my dad and I cut up between 5-10 every year. Between my grandpa, dad, my sister, my uncle and I. We get lots of butchering in. Just take your time, don't rush it. And follow your guides, it's an easy process. Good luck!

I have been cuting my deer up for awhile now. Once you have done a few it becomes almost second nature. I like doing it myself because i know im geting my deer and how it was taking care of after the hunt. I have heard a lot of horror stories about processing places

I did it myself last year and it came out just fine. Can't see paying someone else to do something you are capable of doing for free.

We do our own. Skinning, boning, burger, chip steak, sausage, etc. I just like knowing the meat I eat is my deer.
