I had a problem with Old Plantation myself. Used them once but never again.

For the record I recommend Kent Wenzle's Lone Star Meat Company in Hamilton. It is a long drive but worth it.

I've had some bad experiences with processors in the past. The frustrating part is there is nothing you can do. You can argue with him, but you won't win. The only thing you can do is just not use them in the future. Sorry about it, taxidermist or not anyone with any common sense knows you can't keep a hide for that long exposed.

Why all the mystery? Call this place out by name and save some of us from a bad experience.

JR's processing. It's off of 199 behind Old Plantation Meats. Last years was the first time in 20 yrs. that I used a processor. I used Old Plabtation and was very plesed with the service. A friend of mine recommended that I use JR's so I followed his advice and now regret it. My friend thought it was crazy that I only got 14 lbs. of ground too. He is not going to use JR's anymore either.

I harvested a doe on the 30th and took her to Teel's on the North side of Weatherford. I'll let ya'll know how that turns out.

There is a new place here in Bridgeport called Mas Meat Market. They did an awesome job on mine. I took the deer to them quartered and he charges $1.50 per pound unless you want sausage, jerky, or something else. I had my deer back in three days. The price even includes mixing the ground with beef.

Not to mention they have awesome meats. They have some marinated fajita meat and it is outstanding.

The Deer Stop in Whitesboro is a good place. He keeps a clean shop and is an honest guy.

Be glad you got 14 lbs back. My son picked his (9 point buck) up from the processor in Rendon on FM 1187 after making 2 trips cause they couldn't find it also. When he finaly got the meat it was 6 packages of steak and 8 lbs of burger.

I am proud (and the processor is lucky) that he kept his conposure about it and marked it up to experiance not to go back. A few years ago he would have been calling me from jail.

sooner,

There is a place down close to Lake Jackson called Luckenbach's Deer Processing. Little drive for you about 50 miles, but he is good, reasonable, and he does the deer individually.

And yes he is one of the last original Luckenbach's form the hill country.

Not saying its the case here, but you guys have seen the condition of some of the meat dropped off with processors, which causes a significant amount of the "loss" people feel like they have from a processor. How the deer is cleaned, transported, etc all lead to how much meat you will get back. I don't know how big that 2 1/2 YO spike was, but where we are that would likely be in the 115 -120 lb range on the hoof (high end). Would probably get about 40 lbs total from a processor on a very clean animal of that size unless you are making sausage where you have adds. If you only take quarters it will be less. If shoulders are destroyed or meat is damaged in transport, etc., will be less. One of the processors I go to will tell the hunter when they are going to lose meat in the process, but I think most of them are too busy accepting deer to really do that.

I have had really good experiences with the following processors and use them regular. Hals in Coleman, Hamiltons in Weatherford, Georges in Glen Rose. I liked the guy in Bluff Dale but he is gone. I have heard good things about Clays in Dublin from friends. pk1616 is right on about condition of animal and the adds. If you want more then maybe you should shoot bigger deer.

Before you use any processor, have them explain step by step the process they use for your deer, then have them explain step by step the process they have for keeping up with whose deer is whose deer. If they have trouble with either process, I would not use them. Organizational skills are needed to the max in this type of business.
