Deer Processing in Harford Co.

Now that we're getting up to regular firearms season for deer, I am looking for good deer processors in the Harford/Cecil County area.

Any recommendations?

My wife didn't really like me doing it in the garage last year. I still haven't ruled that out though.

I have a good friend who is a taxidermist and he has had a few KCC capes come in with a slice all the way up the neck to under the jaw

Bowman's on route 22 between churchville and aberdeen is open probably one of the best butchers around

KCC

KCC all the way! I took a deer there that I shot during early muzzleloader and was super impressed. They are VERY clean, they do not use saws to contaminate the meat. All in all, it's the only place I'd take a deer.

Good sausage and balogna too.



Ridgely and Ferens: I hate to put down anybody, so all I will say is that the price is good, but you get what you pay for.

Um, that cut was probably done by who ever field dressed the deer. You do field dress, don't you?

@iriden I dropped a buck off at Buckland's this evening, they told me Bowman's did indeed close, but is now reopened.

@toddriver How does one butcher a large mammal without a saw?

Field dress all the way from the balls to the lower jaw????? Not hardly, I wont even cut through the brisket. I know one of the hunters this happened to and the taxidermist has received a total of 3 capes like this from KCC.

IndespensibleDestiny,
You have never done this? Easy, debone the hind quarters, separate the roasts and cut them into steaks. A bone saw is DEFINATELY not needed. I've butchered plenty of deer without a saw. It does take more time, though, but it's worth it.

I had my doe processed at Bowmans. I'm pretty sure it is new ownership/management. Put they are 25$ less this year than last. I have had no problems with them, but last year a buddy had his order totally "butchered".

Ditto on the Dave Thompson. I work with him and am very impressed with his butchering. If I get one that is who I will be taking it to.

Ok then, I just thought some folks may have gotten carried away in the field. No insult to your friend!
