deer processing 


Who is the best deer processor?

In my opinion, in central MS, its Dwight's on Highway 18 in Raymond. Does a great job.

Re: deer processing 


I had some processed at Van's and he does do a good job.

One concern I have with Van's and It may be just a rumor, is that he wieghs your meat when it comes in and thats the weight you get back, but all of it (yours and everyone else's deer) is processed together. Like I said, this may be a rumor and Ive never spoken to the folks at Vans about it, but that what Ive heard from others.

Processing has gotten so high these days. I will generally send off some meat off a deer I killed for sausage, but the rest I put up as tenderized steak on my own.

I took 2 deer to the processor. I had 40 pounds of sausage made and the rest into hamburger. The bill was $ 214.

Yep I do, I used to try to do it myself, but its just not worth it. I would rather get someone else to do it.

Re: deer processing 


The cleaning part is not hard, and if done properly, not bad messy, to the one cleaning that is. I had a friend who worked at a processor show me a quick way to clean one and over the years Ive gotten fairly quick at it. I can have one cleaned, meat in the cooler and remains hauled off in about 20 minutes.

Growing up, I belonged to a large deer camp, me and several others around the same edge used to have to clean the older guys deer. It became a contest to see who could clean one the quickest.

I *can* clean one faster on the ground...
with a flash light at night...
while trespassing...
with the game warden looking for the source of the shot...
buts that's another story altogether. Faster, but a lot less efficient and messier. cool

Re: deer processing 


I dont like vans because you dont get your meat back. its all mixed in. if i take the time to quickly clean my deer and ice it down. i dont want to eat someone elses meat that was probably ran by dogs and possibly layed on the ground for half a day before it was dressed properly. vans is too high any way for what you get.i do my own now. i use the whole deer on jerky that i make myself any way.

Re: deer processing 


I did that one time, (the jerky) turned out pretty good, used one of those dehydrators.

Ive heard that about Vans and feel the same as you, I take the time to soak the deer meat in icewater to draw out the blood before I send it to the processor. I dont want to eat the meat someone else didnt clean and care for properly.
