Question- Do I get my own deer back?
Answer- Every deer carries a carcass tag throughout the process to ensure that you get back your steaks and roasts. Products such as stix and sausages are processed in larger batches. We are very selective about what we accept, so you can be sure that the finished product you will get back will be of the highest quality.
Answer- We take both! Whole deer should be brought in as soon as possible so that we can get them into the cooler quickly. Boneless meat should be clean and packaged in clear food grade plastic bags (like ZIPLOC freezer bags). In both cases, the cleaner you keep your wild game, and the better care you take with it, the better product you will receive. We reserve the right to refuse any wild game as we see fit.
Question- Do you take whole deer or boneless?
Question- Does my deposit go toward my total cost?
Answer- If you bring in a whole deer, your $100 deposit takes care of your basic processing. If you don't want any specialty products, you will be paid in full. Any specialty products will be an addition cost that is part of your final invoice. If you bring boneless meat, your $1 per pound deposit is the fee we charge for handling, cleaning, and trimming your meat to prepare for further processing. The products you order to be made from your meat are at an additional cost. If we discard any portion of your meat, your invoice will be based upon the weight of usable product you were left with. We reserve the right to remove and discard any portion of your boneless meat we see fit.
Question- How long before I get my deer back?
Answer- Our goal is to get your deer back to you as soon as possible, however, we are unable to predict a specific return time due to the huge number of deer we process. Once your deer has been cooled, it gets boned out. Your fresh product is packaged. labeled, and goes into the freezer in a bag with your information on it. It is kept separate from other product while we work on your stix, jerky, sausage, and so on. Once all your products are done, we double check to make sure everything is in place, and you will receive a phone call to let you know that your product is ready. We do not return any product until the entire order is filled. Any product not picked up within 7 days of notification will be held in our freezer, and a storage fee of $5 per day will be charged.
