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

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
