East-Metro Butcher open on Sunday?

11 posts in this topic

Can any of you recommend a butcher in the East Metro who is open on Sunday? In early season like this I hesitate to shoot a deer as I want to take care of it properly. I don't have the facilities myself, and if I get one I want to get it cooled off quickly in a locker.

Off to hunt!

If you run into a heat issue, here is what I will do when we are hunting and noone is open. First, skin the deer and then we quarter it and place it in a freezer with a 2x4 in the lid to keep it open a few inches for the night. Now, this is a older freezer that we keep just for this and it does not have any other food in it.

Thanks guys. I'm doing a lot of metro hunting in the next week and want to be ready. Nadeau's sounds good and convenient. So far I've passed on 7 bucks and been winded by a doe. So at this rate I won't have to find a meat locker. Maybe I should release an arrow though?

Nadeau's market down in Hugo is open.

I tried calling them and they answered "Superior Market" and said they were under new ownership. I asked if they did venison processing and they said no.

Is there someone else in Hugo who took over, or is picking up the slack?

I saw three 8's, one 4, and two forks (one blonde) yesterday. Two of the 8's were small bodied and basket-racked, and one was a big deer with a thick antlers with one side pointing down--he also had a scar from an arrow from some previous year. I didn't take him as it was the first day and I didn't feel like it. If I see him again in range I'm taking him. Today I saw the blonde fork and the doe that winded my Rasberry Pop Tarts (but never saw me).

I have a semi-private place in the city to hunt, plus MBRB, plus some private land in Rochester. So I'm going to try and stack up the does this year and wait for Mr. Big.

Grundhofer's Old Fashion Meats is a couple miles north of the old Nadeau's on Hwy. 61. They do a great job and have fair pricing. They are open until 7:00 on Saturday's and until 6:00 on Sunday's. You can find them out back later when things get going. I think some of the old Nadeau's gang is there.

Von Hanson's is a great place to try. They're friendly and have a nice variety of options for you, too.

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
