Kicking around the idea of booking a meat hunt over the holidays. Been doing research on animals and price points. For the money it looks like I could get 2 axis does or one red deer hind. Which one would put get the most meat in the freezer?

Be close. Red deer is very open ended. Lots of Texas ones have Sika DNA in them... shrinking them.

You “should” net more on the red deer but probably not a ton over two axis.

Shoot the red deer and only pay one processing fee.

Both are very good but the red deer will have a stronger flavor

Good point.


If you debone you won’t have the fee. Syrcuse meats up here charges 14.50 a quarter to debone.

If deboned it’s considered trim
