Deer Processing Near Albany

Recommended Posts

There's a few fellas / spots (some of them are mentioned somewhere on this site), but only one is coming to mind.  I used him for my first deer, and he showed me how to butcher.  He was reasonably priced.  He shows up at your place and cuts up from his trailer:

Mike's Deer Cutting:

I've butchered all my own deer since, so that's the only experience I've had...

Also - local butcher shops will likely have business cards for deer processing in the shop.  That's how I found Mike's Deer Cutting.  It was one of three or four cards I took from Route 66 Smokehouse in Wynantskill a few years back.

Plan B in Clifton park 85 bucks ...who did you end up using 

Keller off Beach Rd? That's who I have been using for the last 5 years. What do you think of him? I have never had a bad experience but I have never used anyone else to compare. I know I surely don't get as much meat as some of the guys here say they get that process their own. I imagine Butchers aren't as picky about getting everything when they are butchering hundreds of deer.

Yes, Ray off beach rd, I have no complaints been using him for years. For the price he can't be beat . As said above , Chester is good but man he is high.

I seem to think I get alot back, my deer was 120 gutted and I got two big boxes of meat back.

Did he tell you he's done after this year but 99% sure son and friends will be doing it next year .

He had told me that the last 3 years. He always says the boys will keep cutting but he is always who I drop the deer too. I am not sure how much cutting he does now. I have dropped off some fairly large deer and some normal size deer. I feel like I always get the same big banana box back full no matter how big the deer is..... I have never weighed it or anything. Not that big of a deal but I was just curious.

Check out the Venison Donation Coalition website. They keep a list of processors that are involved in the program.  Pretty good resource if your nee a processor to cut them up.  Albany are a light on the map of processors.

that was our biggest hurdle with our QDMA branch how do we plug the hell out of them when they have no processor around here in the capital region. had one that's on my QDM co-op and a branch sponsor but he got so busy with pigs, cows, goats, and sheep. he had to quit doing deer.

There was a younger fella by the name of Lowell on Rte 20 in Princetown/Duanseburg that processed a deer for me a couple years ago. Did a good job, i just asked for basic cuts and ground.

I got his number from here i think. (518)231-3301.
