Do you get your own meat back when you take it to a butcher shop?

3 posts in this topic

Everytime I've ever asked a butcher they always say you get your own deer meat back but then you have people claiming that you don't... Which is it??? Speak up you guys that have worked in butcher shops!

It all really depends on where you take your meat. If you take it to a big butcher shop you prolly wont get your meat back. I worked at a smaller butcher shop during the busy deer season for 3 years in a row and i can honestly say everyone got there deer back. There was no "mixing." THe place only dealt with 90-100 deer so when we started doing deer it was one groups deer at a time. We made sure each deer had their own tub and it was always clearly identified. So in my opinion, find a small butcher shop and you will prolly get your deer back.

I get my own cuts back but the butcher lets me know up front he mixes the scraps with the others to make sausage, jerky, brats, etc. Guess it doesn't bug me that much becasue the guy weighs everyone's scraps and divies it out fairly. Plus, I know him and know he takes pride in what he does. He won't mix meat that's suspect with others. But if I didn't know him and the way he operates it, I might not like the mixing idea so much. To paraphrase what one guy said here last year, do you want your nice tender doe mixed up with some old swamp buck that one eyed jack gut shot and let lay all day before doing a half-a-- job of gutting? lol. grin.gif

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
