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

      Mike89 is spot on. Explore that river. Walleyes and cats can be had.

      lots of river fishing, try where the Minnesota and Blue Earth come together.  go to the park down there and enjoy!!!

      Shore fishing can be limited. Personally I would go to the fish hatchery on Lake Tetonka. There is a spot there that produces pretty well at times.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.
