WARNING: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES AND DISCUSSION OF ANIMAL BUTCHERING.
It’s hunting season here in Florida and Hubby caught his first deer so we thought we’d share our experience on the process.
As usual, when I least expect it, I receive the call that he got something. He mumbled something about a gut shot and that it took two steps before stumbled and dropped about 5 feet away from where he shot it.
Hubby and the neighbor gutted and cleaned the meat and brought back the back strap for me to prepare.
I removed the thin membrane and cut it into single portions and vacuum sealed it with our FoodSaver
Once there, we were handed a selection sheet and we placed our order. I was cautious being our first time and selected mostly ground because I know I can make use of it and added a couple of cubed steaks and a five packs of sausage patties.
A few days later we received the call to come and collect our order.
We were met with our nice clean cooler (trust me you don’t want to see the before) filled with 28 ground packages (just over a pound each) plus our 2 packs of cubed steak and our 5 packs of sausage patties
Our total cost was 60.00 for the meat processing.
Of course, there will be some venison recipes coming your way!
