Help me out here, I dropped a deer off the last day of the season. I was called and told it was ready, but I told them I would not be able to come back down soon. I was told this was no problem just call when I was around and they would meet me there. I call today to go and pick it up and they tell me it has been sold..

Is this on me for waiting too long? Or, do you think the processor should have called and given me a hard pickup date and that it would be sold if I didn’t show up?

Apparently he is now butchering beef and can’t have venison in the same area?

I’m pissed, just unsure if I should be mad at myself or the guy who processed it. I’m actually a little sick about killing something and not eating it.


I don't always hunt the line, but when I do, I make sure I'm close to my neighbor's 8 acre bean field.

Sounds like he’s following USDA regs so the fault would be on you but he could have called you to check and see if you wanted it before it was sold


When I need expert advice I tend to talk to myself

It's now the second week of March. Season went out 4 weeks ago. That seems like a long time for the guy to hold your meat. No homo.

It's on you, he's in the business of processing not storing. He was ready to get paid and move on to what he does the rest of the year to make a living

Maybe so but a warning would have been appreciated. First and last season using them.

Each processor is different in regards to what other regulations they have to maintain but, assuming they had your contact info with your meat, a call with message would have been professional. I've taken coolers of processed meat after season to mine(when I didn't do everything in house) after the season to have link sausage made and come back to get it almost 3 months later.
But now I do it all in-house. I was never certain that I was getting my meat back with processors.

@Ron, I would have loved to have known that and I would have made special arrangements. A little customer service wouldn’t have killed him. But, he got paid and that’s what he cares about I suppose.

On you but I think he probably should have told you upfront that has to be picked up by X date

What took you so long to get it? How far away from there do you live?

dropped off 4 weeks ago, but a lot of processors let them hang 2-3 weeks before butchering, it's not like it's been sitting there boxed up ready to go for 4 weeks......

If the processor told him it was "no problem" that he couldn't get there immediately to pick it up, and if the processor never called him to say "it has to be picked up by [DATE] or it will be sold", then IMO the processor is out of line and I'd be pissed too.

I live about an hour and 45 minutes from there but my weekends have been crazy because I am remodeling my house.

Happened to me 2 years ago. I killed a 210lb 7 point opening day and just didn't get around to picking it up after they called. They called 2 more times and I still didn't go get it. When I rolled in about a month or more later, they said it was sold. I was like "What?!" Her reply was "Don't you like to get paid in a timely manner when you give someone an eye exam? Well, so do we when we do our job. We called you three times and didn't hear from you so we sold it" Point made. Point taken. Guess who picks up their deer on time now?! I was upset initially because I've used them for 20+ years and that was the only deer I killed that year. But I'm also man enough to admit it was me at fault. I live 15 minutes from the processor and I should have picked it up a lot sooner.

After the season they are trying to get rid of it so they can shut the freezer off and save some electricity. All of the processors I've used have a notice posted that they will only hold it 10 days after processing. Technically, he didn't sell it as that would be illegal. He just let them have it for the processing fee, which is legal. Most keep a list of people that want the unclaimed deer meat.


Excuse the sanctimony.

Did not know this. In Texas, most processors require a 50% deposit. Any unclaimed meat cannot be re-sold, only donated.

This is kinda like buying your way out of a citation by buying a BaitEmWithCorn Privilege License, isn't it?

The processor I use in town sold the 2nd buck I killed this year. It was thanksgiving weekend and I actually hung around and talked while they caped it out for me. I get a call about 2 weeks later saying my deer meat is ready and if I don’t come and get it theyre going to sell it. I never got a first call, or if I did I didn’t realize it. I go by there the next day to get my meat and it’s already been sold! The said they called me 3 days after I dropped the deer off. I actually told them I was sorry for the misunderstanding and I tried to pay them for caping the deer out. He wouldn’t have it and just told me to bring him another deer. I did, no harm no foul.
