SHARE THE HARVEST
As always each deer will be kept separate — ie. roast, loin, steaks, deer burger is from your deer.
We do co-mingle deer for specialty products, however this year we will be seperating deer harvested in CWD Counties, Deer being CWD Tested and Deer Harvested in Non-CWD Zones.
You can still request to do your own batches of Specialty Products for the additional charge, remember the minimum batch size is 25lbs for 1 item.
In areas where CWD is known to be present (Adair, Cole, Franklin, Jefferson, Linn, Macon, and St. Clair counties), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends hunters strongly consider having their harvested deer tested before eating the meat.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends not consuming an animal that tests positive for the disease. Do not eat meat from deer that look sick or are found dead. If a hunter chooses to dispose of the processed meat, do so properly through a trash service to a properly permitted landfill to prevent the spread of the disease.
