what do you think the percentage of processors in Texas actually give you "your" deer back? My buddy and I are having a debate.

Most large places don't give you back your deer if you get it ground up, made into sausage, etc. If you ask for steaks, you'll most likely get yours. Just ask the processor. Big ones tend to do large batch grinding.

No offense to processors but I just rather do it myself unless I want something special like summer sausage, jalapeno cheese, etc.

I dunno, I've heard that you usually don't get your deer back but then I've never asked my processor. I guess I really don't want to know because what could I do about it anyway.

Process your own! It's not hard, just takes a bit of time.

Actually I did process my own for about 20 years and enjoyed doing it. Thanks to my spiteful ex I don't have any of my grinders or equipment anymore. I've only been using a processer for a couple of years now. It is kinda convenient to drop it off.

Depending on who I take it to and how I want it prepared it takes anywhere from 1 week to 1 month.

Bon Ton Grocery in Uhland takes about a week to grind mine into HB/Bacon and/or steaks. Hudson's on S. Congress in Austin takes up to a month for Jalapeno/Cheese sausage. Granzin's in New Braunfels takes about the same.

I drop mine off at a friends place that does his own processing. I pay him for it and I get my deer back. Just a local guy that does it for his family and once or twice a year for me.

There is a post a while back that showed how to make a grinder using a hand crank grinder and a motor/pulley system, it was for about 100 bucks and looked great.

I went to Miller's ( I think) in Llano. I believe they do a batch grind, but don't know for sure. Although I did take a look around, and they had some NASTY deer being brought in. The good thing about it though, is that they kept all of that separate from the rest of the other deer that looked fine. So hopefully the larger places at least do something like that so you don't get green gut shot meat mixed into your's.
