    My buddy that owns a processing plant in Tonkawa charges $75. All they require is it be field dressed. They do one deer at a time from start to finish.

    Thank you Guys. Hooking up the drill to the hand grinder is genius!
    Daniel - Thank you for the offer. I am going out tomorrow with my brother so butchering the deer might be trial by fire. What kind of butchering knife or knives do you use? Long blade, short blade, flexible, ect?

    Couple other things discovered over the years.........

    -cut the meat however you're going to eat it, then soak, changing water till there's no more blood...........even the meat you're going to grind, cube it, soak it
    -partial frozen meat grinds better
    -Use a short blade in the field and when parting out (I do this entire process on the tailgate now, 10 minute job, tenderloins included), if it's cool out, I don't even gut them anymore.
    -Almost always use a filet knife in the kitchen now to finish up the process.

    +1 on the fillet knife, makes it easier to get all the silver skin off the meat and makes it easier to get meat from around bones.
    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.
