Just wondering how many of you still cut up your deer every year or if you take it to a butcher to cut up. I usually do it about half and half. Sometimes I take my animals sometimes I do it myself how about you?
I do mine myself and occationally will do someone elses when they don't have time. I did two deer last week. It isn't hard, just time consuming. But, when you are done you know it's all your meat and it's done the way you want it done.
I don't like to package any fat, hair or bone in my packages. So, in order to make sure all of the meat that is wrapped up is "pan ready", I take a lot of time preparing it. I don't do roasts either. All of mine are packaged as "chops" (backstraps), "steaks" and "jerky meat".
We always cut our own animals. I can't hardly believe how many folks don't (or won't) :roll: cut their own game. Cutting up a deer is so easy. Elk are a bit more involved, but still it's the same. I wonder why Sportsmans or Cabelas doesn't offer workshops on cutting up game? They sure offer a vast array of equipment to do the job. I wonder if they sell any of it with all of the ninnies out there who can't, don't, won't cut up their animals.

I saved the testicles off my elk this year for two reasons:
1) It was a male.
2) They were the only part of the elk that the flies weren't layin' eggs on.
Uh...the testicles are those two pink thingies, bottom center:

How much meat can you get out of the average buck antelope? I'm pretty fussy about waste when it comes to butchering wild game and I would go broke cutting up wild game for a living.
I got 50# of edible meat out of an average buck antelope!!
