I'm curious how many people butcher their own animals, either wild (hunted) or domestic? If you do cut up your own, are there times when you've had so much that you thought about taking it somewhere to be processed? Or ever actually do so? If you always take it in to be processed, do you at least know how to do it yourself? Is that knowledge from a book or have you done it yourself, or at least helped or watched someone? We've always cut up and processed our own meat, even when we were doing large amounts such as 3 deer at a time (multiple family members with hunting licenses), but then our climate is cold enough that time isn't as much of an essense! I've had a few people lately be totally surprised that we do our own, and indicated that they thought not very many people do these days. I suspect a lot of members of this forum butcher and process their own. So I thought I'd ask.
