One thing I have done is build a list of people wanting deer meat. Once I have filled my freezer, I make a call and tell them the next one is their's and go directly to the processor. They go pickup the processed meat. From what I have found people are very happy to pay the processing fee to avoid having to deal with an entire animal.

If they don't want or can't eat an entire deer I partner them up. I have 3 families in my neighborhood that have 2 deer/yr made into summer and breakfast sausage that they split amongst themselves. I also know several people that give several deer to the Amish community, but I don't know any.

If I end up moving to Lawrence county in my new home , there is an Amish community down the road a few miles . I might see if they would like some venison . Looks like good hunting land too . \:\)

I missed the discussion last year ?? I know it is illegal to sell for a profitt. It has always been my understanding it was OK to let someone pay the processing and have the meat.

At the check-in station at Ft. Campbell they will take any donated deer (even one not killed on base) because they keep a list of soldiers who want the meat.

YES!!!!!

We pass up way too many does because we already have too many deer to process hanging in the cooler. I wish there was a place to donate whole deer that didn't cost anything.


Thats why God gave us Mexicans. My workers beg me to bring them a deer.

I had two does and a button buck under my stand for a half hour this morning . I have decided to hold off on shooting does until late season on this private tract .
I watched them browse on green briar and watched the direction they traveled to their bedding area , taking note of the information gained through observation .
They never had a clue that I was around .

And there's the problem. If they are falling all around you, they are also falling somewhere else as well. Acorns really spread the deer out and allow them to feed without moving much.

I process my own for more than one reason. I dont want to pay the exorbitant expense of proc. and i want mine processed in the exact manner that eliminates fat, membrane and anything else not tasty......I shot 10 last year and made jerky until i was tired of dealing with the labor of it. I could eat it and give it away all year long but it gets tiring and expensive to even do that. I have folks bug me all the time about giving them jerky of cooking some for them. i enjoy that and do it because it brings them pleasure but it sure wears on you also. If you have never taken a backstrap and marinated it in soy sauce for at least 6 hours and then peppered it and garliced it then wrapped a single strand of bacon around it from end to end and place on a grill and cooked from 25 to 35 minutes.......you have not lived..............dang i am gonna go crank one up and thaw one out!!!!!!!!!!
freakin awesome!!
