    Amc processing takes almost no room to do. You can skin it on the garage floor or something and take each leg onto a big plate or cutting board next to the sink. I just cut pieces, then wrap with cling wrap, then butcher paper, label, and in the freezer. No grinding, no fancy machines, I use whatever knife I have around. A deer I can do easy in an afternoon, including all the clean up. Elk take a couple days because I don't like to work too hard. You get better the more you do. Don't ever take a carcass to a processor. I don't hang them at all. Cut it up and in the freezer.

      I second that. I do much the same thing, though I have a relative who has a good hanging tree, where I skin it and section it, then take the sections home. I've also looked into the game regulations about boning out or quartering right there in the woods -- in my state, there's no problem with it as long as everything is done properly with tagging and sex identification. I keep my big frame backpack in the car with game bags and whatever else I might need. (I haven't actually done that yet; I just decided on it year before last and didn't kill one that season or this one just past.)

        I’ve taken deer to a butcher several times in my life and though there’s always hair, it’s never a lot. Definitely not near as much as you say. But because of cost and the enjoyment of the process I started butchering my own. I usually skin and quarter the deer on the tailgate of my truck and then take the quarters inside to be cut up. It’s not too hard to figure out, and YouTube is a great resource

            I would think that to be very unusual and certainly not a good advertising issue for a processor. That would also lead me to have a concern for other aspects of sanitation of meat handling from such sources, jmo !

              If it's a one-person outfit, I'd still complain. That's your food. I doubt the butcher would go so far as giving you a refund, but you never know, he might honestly feel bad about it and throw you a good discount for next season. It's careless work, but if it was late at night and your deer was the umpteenth one he'd done since five that morning ... well, I can see it happening.

              Of course, if he's a jerk about it, he'd never see another penny from me, and I'd use every resource at my disposal to spread the word on what a lousy butcher he is.

              I have taken 3 deer to 2 different processors this past year. All the meat I received from them have contained hair. Is this normal. I'm not talking about a hair like every other pack, it is more like a dozen or more per package.
