Need some recommendations for deer processing. Leaving Cook tomorrow, heading to Burnsville. Some place along the route would be great. No, I don't want to do it myself!🙂 Thanks in advance.

Isn't there a place just south of Cook on 53,  has a bunch of wood in the yard?    

 

Mark's Country Market 9092 Hannula Rd, Angora, MN 55703

 

I don't know anything about them, but they have been there a long time.  

 

And we changed a trailer tire in their driveway a couple years ago....

Thanks Del, the reviews for them are either really good or bad.  Looking for someplace different.

There's a Market in Emily MN, St Michael MN, Roger's MN, Anoka Meats, Mcdonalds meat in clear lake, Thielen Meats of Little Falls MN & Pierz.  

Just to name a few that I have heard off that do good work.

Thanks Leech, looking for something down through Cloquet along 35 to Burnsville? Called a place in Virginia and they are so busy, won't take new deer till Thursday.

Bakkens In Stanchfield just north of Cambridge. One of the best I’ve dealt with ever! 

Thanks, I'll check it out!

What ever one you try make sure you call ahead. I found myself running all over one year trying to get a deer in. 😟

Check out Brother's Meats in Maple Grove.  Might be a little bit off your path home, but they do a great job.  I have been going there for the past few years and everything has been good.  Processed my own deer for twenty five years.  I am done with that.  They give you your own cuts of meat back, which was important to me, and their polish and sticks are excellent.

You can do a quick rough check of prices by going to their sites and just look up a few things they all make like Summer Sausage, Smoked brats, etc and compare prices. Some are like night and day.

My family has always processed their own deer, but this year for a variety of reasons took my dad's buck into Bakken's on Sunday. Another guy we hunt with brought his in there on Opening Day for the first time ever too. $115 for most deer I believe, a little less for a fawn, and a little more for a really big buck. You get your own meat back if you're having it cut into steaks, chops, etc. If you're getting it processed into sticks, summer sausage, etc it gets mixed in with all the rest.  At least that's what they guy we hunt with said he was told.  

 

Of course, if you don't head up that way often you'll have to drive back up to Stanchfield and back - make sure to stop at the Brass Rail in Grandy for some broasted chicken!

Will, I drove by them all. It's hanging in my garage. Might take it to Greg's in Hampton.

You drove by as they are all full and can't take any more?  Or just not time to stop?

    • Make your own out of thin ply and pink foam. Just take 1/2 inch pink foam and glue on 1/8 or 1/4 plywood on both sides using Pl Premium and a 1/8" V notch trowel. You'll also want to glue in a rabbited solid wood edge to finish it off.  
    • Creating sweets before the holiday season with the family is my favorite kind of a get together. Those looks delicious, I feel like kids and young at heart will love it. 
    • And they still come out with that product! 🙃
    • I ran my last set of hankook dynapro ATM tires for 94,000 and wasn't at the 3/32 wear mark. Just wanted to get a new set before I started grad school. 40k on my current set without issues. I rotated mine every 7500 miles. I have a friend who got 103,000 out of his set. I know people will call BS but I have no reason to lie and no incentive. Both were on half ton chev trucks and I took mine down some super sketchy farm roads that were previously flooded and some flooded logging roads. It's the only tire I'll buy and their fairly affordable. Also a good alignment goes a long ways in the longevity of tires
    • So..............when do pitcher's and catcher's report to spring training?
    • Wine, rum and Woodford 🙄
    • Do they drink Wine while cooking like our ladies?  😋
    • I just put on a set of Falken Wildpeak ATW3 before hunting season and have been impressed so far. The only problem is I don’t have anything to compare against because they replaced the factory tires on my pickup that were 6 years old. I wanted a little more aggressive tire than the factory tires and these seemed to fit that description. I only put about 7-8k miles on my pickup a year so it’s going to take a while to find out for sure how they are in the wrong run but I am happy so far and the price on these tires was great. 
    • I guarantee they are all hand made. 50 lbs of dipping chocolate 10 lbs of white chocolate, mass quantities of sugar, coconut and fondant. Then 13 women put in 8 hours of mixing, rolling, dipping and trimming. Each family has some of the centers mixed ahead of time because they need to cool and set overnight.
    • check out the smith lift it is expensive but they work.
