butcher shop - venison - south metro

10 posts in this topic

I am looking for a butcher shop for my deer in the south metro. I would like it to be within 25 miles of Eagan. Has anyone have any suggestions from the past seasons? Thanks for the help.

shouldnt be that far of a drive for you, bu Stasny's in St. Paul does an amazing job at butchering deer. Used to bring all of our deer there before i learned how to do it and got equipment.

He's not open yet, but Duff's Meats in Hastings will do it. I live right next to his brother in law. They have some of the best deer sticks I have ever had. Awesome guy to bring your deer to.

He's moving into a new building, so I am not sure he'll be ready, but I sure hope he is... I'll drive by there today to see how its coming and report back.

I saw that on the sign....Did he buy out the Block or what happened. Whatever the case may be glad to see it, Duffs always had the best meat.

Much depends if you need specialty cuts, sauasages, sticks, etc., but I'd strongly recommend Greg's Meats just south of Hampton, MN, north of Cannon Falls. It's probably right at about 25 miles, but they're right off of Hwy 52, which is a fast, straight-shot.

They're prices are much more reasonable than alot of the metro shops, and their sausage recipes are typically national champs each year. They'll work with you on making all-venison summer sausage if you talk to the owner, and run a clean-shop.

If you call them up, they'll probably be able to fax or snail-mail you a copy of their 2007 Deer Processing price sheet.

Well-worth the drive. We've got quite a few local places to choose from, and Greg's gets our business every year.

Yep...

Looking forward to seeing Duffs back up and running. He had a huge following when he was still open on the south edge of town.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it...

I also highly recommend Greg's Meats. If you do a search online for "greg's meats" he comes up near the top(at least for me). Great service, freindly, competitive pricing. Numerous award winning recipes.

Husnik's on old Concord in SSP does a good job and is reasonable.

He has been in business for over 25 years. It is family owned and just about completely family run. Almost everyone that works there is related. Just recently, He has added onto the shop, more freezer and storage, so he can handle a lot.

Greg is open M-F 8-5:30, Sat 8-3, and closed on Sundays.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
