Welcome to Duncan's Deer Processing
How it Works
Deer processing is seasonal. Deer are accepted on a first come, first serve basis starting on the 1st Saturday of December. We are open for drop-off of field dressed deer between 8 AM and 2 PM or by appointment.
Must be kept cool and properly field dressed. (If the animal is not field dressed in approximately two hours from the time it was shot, the meat will most likely spoil and become unfit for processing.) Deer not suitable for eating, will not be accepted for processing. Any meat brought in a scented garbage bag will also be refused.
Do I get my own meat back and how long does it take?
We process deer just like we process chickens. We tag and process one at a time so that you get your own meat back on items processed in-house (ground, steaks and roasts). We process the deer in the order it is received and you can expect your in-house items to be available for pick-up in 3 to 7 days. Specialty items will have a longer turn around time. We will call you when your order is ready for pick-up.
What cuts are available and how will it be packaged?
You can choose roast, steak, loin and ground. These items are all vacuum packed except the ground which is packaged in 2 pound plastic packages.
What if I want specialty items like jerky and sausages?
Jerky: 10 lbs. deer yields 4.5 lbs. finished product.
Muscle Jerky: 10 lbs. deer yields 4 lbs. finished product.
Snack Sticks: 10 lbs. deer + 5 lbs. pork = 15 lbs. This is the amount your would be charged for. There is some
shrinkage on the sticks when they are cooked so you would receive 12 lbs. back.
