Questions and answers
Do I get my own meat back?
All your deer cuts, ground deer, and sausage are your own. We make sausage in a minimum of 30 pound batches to make sure you get your own deer. Due to limitations of production, whole muscle deer jerky is the only product that is made in mixed batches.
How much gain or shrink is there on cooked products?
10 pounds of summer sausage and small diameter yields 10 pounds of finished product.
10 pounds of sticks will yield 6.5 pounds finished sticks.
10 pounds of jerky meat will yield 4-5 pounds of finished jerky.
Should I let my deer hang for several days before bringing it in?
The sooner your deer arrives the better it is. Deer meat is just like any other meat: it needs to be kept cold and clean, and that is what we do. There are some steps you can take to help keep your venison fresh and clean, which includes immediately gutting it, opening up the chest cavity to allow heat to escape, and if possible, rinsing the inside with cool water and then placing a bag of ice inside. Cooling the carcass down as quickly as possible is the best way to maintain the quality of your meat.
