You can assign another person over the age of 18 to drop-off your meat and place your order for you.

Due to health and safety regulations, we are unable to save bones for customers. If you wish to keep your bones, please plan ahead as we are not able to allow you to debone your animal at our location.
Presentation of tags and licenses are required prior to acceptance of your carcass/meat.
Processing charges are based on the hanging weight of your animal as it is received.
Animals typically lose 3 to 5 pounds in moisture loss while hanging. We do not recommend aging your game meat longer than the processing would normally take.
Loss from cutting and shrinkage can range from 30% to 50% depending upon the condition of the carcass/meat as we receive it.
Because these are wild animals, we CANNOT and WILL NOT be responsible for the quality and nutritional value of your meat. All wild animals eat, drink and live different lives therefore each animal will cut, grind and taste different regardless of how many times you have hunted in the same area. As a reminder, there is no rancher in the field monitoring the health of your animal - it is your responsibility as a hunter to ensure you are taking healthy animals and caring for them properly.
We are not responsible for excess cutting losses due to dirtiness or improperly maintained meat.
Because our sausages and jerky are handmade, we reserve the right to be +/- 0.50 lbs. on each order.
All orders over 20 lbs. REQUIRE the proper documentation.
Because we are regulated by the Division, we must follow their rules and regulations. We are required to report suspicious activity. Refunds will not be issued on any carcass/meat that is seized by the Division.
All Sales Are Final.
