I've had some good scouting sessions and am optimistic about prospects for muzzleloader elk. Looking for someplace to process it and rent freezer space it if I bring them the field dressed animal. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Consider butchering yourself.
Hand the animal. Quarter it out if already not done and bone it out and place meat in a cooler with ice.
I do all my own jerky, sausage, cuts, grinding. Used to do it my apartment on the kitchen table. I enjoy it as much as hunting.
Helped a neighbor process an elk and another neighbor 2 deer this weekend.
