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

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

      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
