I agree one shoe doesn't fit all feet,, but we all know of at least one place or two that combines the meat ..
I am happy that your place is so careful,, your endorsement would entice me to take my deer there,,
when we used to have sausage made, we took it to a place in Hatley,, only we took it there in the middle of summer. ours was the only venison there, then..
we treat our deer like food as soon as it is shot, not like some people .. I saw a group drag a doe out of the woods behind a 4 wheeler.. there was about 100 feet of water next to the road,
they dragged that doe through the muddy water,, it was submerged most of the way.. now that's appetizing, eh ?
speaking of deer, nephew's friend hit another one last night with his truck.. this one is a buck with horns.. lots of damage to the truck.. (and to the deer) .. nephew gutted it and brought it to me,, I will hang it off the tractor bucket today and skin it.
If it is busted up too badly, I will make dog food packages out of it.. it looks like there is not a single unbroken bone in it..
maybe I should take it to Antigo and let CW87 and the guys have a go at it. LOL
