Here are the rules:
Cleaned | Quartered | On Ice
Our butchers are easy to work with, they ask that when you bring your game, it is:
- In an iced down cooler that keeps the meat below 41 degrees
- Skinned, gutted, and quartered
- Clean and free of all foreign debris and residue - including hair, bullets, arrowheads etc.
Always, bring your game to us in an iced down cooler - we always check receiving temperatures. Our butcher will receive and store your game in our freezer with a freezer bag for the period that we hold it. We don't keep coolers. When you return for pick-up, please come back with your iced cooler for safe and acceptable transportation back home.
It is very important to keep the temperature of the meat below 41 degrees to prevent decomposition, bacterial growth, and any contamination.
We do not keep coolers in our premises due to limited space and in order to meet and maintain acceptable storage temperatures of the game inside the cooler.
