Is it worth processing your own deer?
The reasons to process your own venison are many. I certainly could have used one of the many processors around Auburn, but there are a couple of major reasons I decided to do it myself. The first is simple – saving money! Venison processing also allows you much more flexibility when the time to cook arrives.
Do you have to gut a deer right away?
If you wait too long to recover the deer, the blood will spoil and ruin the meat. The old bowhunters’ rule is to wait eight to 12 hours before following a gut- shot deer. If you wait that long when it’s 50 degrees or above, your intentions may be good, but there’s a good chance you will lose that meat.
How long does it take to get a deer processed?
So long as your butcher keeps the deer in refrigerated storage it’s no big deal and the venison will age nicely for many days. The refrigerated storage is key! If the butcher does not have that you should be getting your deer back in no more than 2 days this time of year.
