2022 Hunting Season Information
AS OF 11/30/2022 WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING WHOLE DEER UNLESS IT IS FOR THE DEER DONATION PROGRAM. WE WILL ACCEPT QUARTERED OR BONELESS VENISON FOR PROCESSING FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR.
We accept wild game trimmings/scrap (deer, bear, elk, moose, etc.) all year round and promise you will always get your own meat back. In season, we accept whole deer, whole bear and we also accept deer donations for the Wisconsin Deer Donation Program. Please note, if your deer was harvested from one of the CWD-affected counties that require testing your CWD Barcode Number will be required at the time of donation.
The $100 deer processing fee includes skinning, cutting, grinding, and vac-sealing. Yes, you read that right - all steaks, chops, and roasts are vacuum-sealed to ensure freshness at no extra charge. We tube all ground venison into 1# or 2# tubes and can add pork or beef if requested for an additional fee. Your animal will come back to you boxed and sharp frozen.
Processing Fees include skinning, cutting, grinding (bulk or tubed), vac-sealing, boxing.
Deer: $100 - Caping an additional $40
Whole Deer Discount: -$40 (Applied when ENTIRE deer is made into sausage - no fresh cuts removed)
All wild game product batches require a 10# minimum.

To prevent a surplus of deer at our facility during gun season we will be enforcing a daily limit on how many deer will be accepted. Please call ahead to reserve your spot for dropoff. If you don't have an appointment, you may have to come back at a later date. See above for drop-off hours.
Phone: (715) 851-8281
Please come prepared! We will need your name, phone number, and registration confirmation number at the time of drop-off.
Please be ready to answer the following questions:
1. How would you like your backstraps/loin processed?
Options: whole, halved, or cut into butterflied chops.
2. How would you like your hinds processed?
Options: all steaks, all roasts, steaks and roasts, or all added to trimmings/scrap
3. What would you like done with your trimmings/scrap?
Options: ground into burger, made into sausage, or bagged trim.
When processing a whole animal, ground venison is included in the processing fee. We'll need to know if you'd like it stuffed in 1# or 2# tubes and whether or not you'd like it straight (no additional fee) or if you'd like a third of pork ($2.99/lb. additional) or beef ($4.99/lb. additional) added.
There is a $50 deposit required at the time your order is placed when ordering wild game sausage. See our 2022 wild game product sheet (below) for the full list of options. Our batches require a minimum of 10lbs. of boneless trim for each batch. When bringing in your whole deer, our staff will help you estimate how many products you'll be able to order as there are many factors taken into consideration when estimating yield.
All animals must be properly field dressed with all organs removed. Deer not properly field dressed could be subject to a cleaning charge. All cut-up wild game must be fresh/frozen, and clean. We reserve the right to refuse any game that does not smell fresh or is not cleaned properly. All cut-up game must be transported in clean, food-safe bags or containers. Please do not use black, brown, or scented garbage bags, non-food safe, or dirty containers to transport your meat.
