Melanie called all the ones that we finished early.
Looking for something special? Give us a call and we'll check for you.
We also still have a few shares available for immediate pick up.

"Why won't you sell venison? I just want to pick up orders that customers don't pick up on time."
We hear this question all the time. But the fact is, it is against the law. If someone leaves a deer with us and then refuses to pick it up, we can't sell it to you, even for the cost of processing. We agree that it doesn't seem fair, but it is the law and we abide by it. That fact also explains why we work so hard to remind you of your pickup date! If you don't pick it up, we can't recoup our costs by selling the meat. If something happens and you change your mind about getting your meat processed, please give it to a friend or neighbor. They can stop by and give us your name, your order number and we'll be glad to let them pick up your meat. Lots of people love venison! So far, we've not had to start taking a deposit. It sounds like a paperwork nightmare to me!
From the DNR website:
Deer Processors - Deer processors should recognize
that it is unlawful to sell deer meat to regain
the processing fee for deer that have not been
picked-up by the owner (50-11-1910). The best
practice is to take a deposit for the processing
service when deer are left at the facility. If meat
is not picked-up by the owner it can be given to
another individual at no charge.
