so I drive an hour and a half to deliver the 50 pounds of deboned venison to them to have it made into jap and cheese sausage. Get it unloaded and the guy asks where are my tags? He proceeds to tell me I'm lucky the game warden isn't there as I would be getting a ticket. Told him I processed the spike and doe at home and didn't need a tag for the deboned meat. An hour and a half later I'm back home and call TP&W and get the # for 2 Tarrant Co. game wardens, the lady doesn't answer but Officer Broussard sp? calls back. He said I wasn't breaking any law and that " they just didn't want to mess with it" without a tag.

I was the only vehicle there so maybe they just didn't want to mess with it period. I've taken deboned meat the last 4 years to 2 other places and never been asked for a tag/tags.

Now my buddy did take his to Hirsch's Meats this year, it was deboned and they asked him for a tag. He told them they didn't ask last year when be took it in. They wound up taking it anyway.

Anyone else had any problems with this? Gonna make me buy a dang stuffer and start trying to make my own sausage.

Never experienced it before as I've never taken a deer to a processor, but I've heard about other people having problems with it

Great idea, looking at mixers and stuffers now, don't want to spend a fortune but want something that lasts more than 1 or 2 seasons too.

I don't disagree that you are right but is it not that big of a deal to just have the tag with you? I know we are all different but if I am taking a deer to a professor I have always had the tag and my license.

I threw it away with the heads, I took 7 one gallon ziplock bags with deboned meat. Never had a problem before at other places. Mostly mad that the dude there tried to tell me I was breaking the law and if the game warden was there I would have gotten a ticket. I'm sure they won't miss my business as it seems they have the reputation of being about the best place around. Was wanting to warn anyone else going there of "their" rules so maybe they won't waste 3 plus hours of driving time like I did. Glad I had it frozen.

Oh and to answer your question no it wouldn't be a big deal to have the tag and of course I would have had I known that they would refuse to take deboned venison without it. Live and learn, next time if I do go to a processer I'll take the tag/tags too.

Would be a little more of a drive for you but if you want to get some very good summer sausage there are 2 places in Hamilton Wenzels Lone Star Meats and Whaley in Hamilton. Wenzel is open year round and prefers the meat to be brought in boned out, tags not required. The Lonestar Brats are fantastic beer already in the brats up

I have been told to keep a tag for the processor for years. No big deal. All I use a processor for is making sausage and I take them boned out meat. TP&W game wardens have been known to hang out at Kuby's in Dallas and write tickets for deer meat being dropped off with no tag presented.

Their reputation for good product is well earned. Guessing they are much more accustomed to getting field dressed deer as opposed to "boned meat" or you just got more of a rookie there. Wouldn't sweat it too much myself.

The following is taken directly from the tpwd website:

"You are allowed to quarter a deer or antelope in camp, but tagging and proof-of-sex requirements continue to apply until the wildlife resource reaches a final destination."

"Final Destination" for Pronghorn Antelope, Deer, and Turkey:
The permanent residence of the person who takes the antelope, deer, or turkey; the permanent residence of the person who receives the antelope, deer, or turkey or part of the antelope, deer, or turkey; or a cold storage or processing facility.

This sure seems to indicate that the processor should expect to receive proof of sex, a tag and a quartered deer as that would be the final destination if not processing yourself, but maybe the actual law is written to cover the OP's circumstance. I don't think I could fault Cinnamon Creek based on the above.

I had a situation back when they were Syracuse where I dropped my cape off at the taxidermist prior to taking my meat to be processed. The taxidermist insisted he needed the tag and gave me a wildlife resource doc. When I got to Syracuse, they indicated they needed my tag. I explained the situation, called the taxidermist and had him fax a copy over. Problem solved. Tag should have stayed with the carcass, not with the taxidermist btw.

Well I believe if you read my original post I did. I have 7 one gallon ziplock bags of venison or around 50 pounds. That would wind up being around 75 pounds of sausage. Now, I for one would have no problem driving 3 hours twice (have to pick it up when it's done) to get 75 pounds of delicious jap and cheese sausage. Unfortunately they rebuked my deer and I had to drive back home with no mouth watering sausage in my future.

Ding ding, we have a winner.
