I always process all of my game. I've often wondered if when you take a deer to the processer, if you are getting your animal back? I'd be worried they just mix all of the deer together and give you a bag of meat. If they did, what if you got a old doe someone gut shot and found 2 days later then took it to a process plant? I've no idea if this ever happens, but by doing it myself I never have to worry.
