For the hunter that is not so skilled with a butcher knife or is just
simply worn out & tired from the hunt. There are two other options
for hunters to utilize for getting their trophy animal taken care of
both properly and efficiently.
Hunters will find that the Backwoods Whitetails Lodge is set up to be
a one stop style hunting lodge. As whitetail hunting professionals we
know that as soon as the trigger is pulled, the real work begins. Due
to the sometimes uncooperative weather conditions. The outside
temperatures and/or conditions can play a factor in being able to
quickly and safely preserve the meat and/or care for the cape of
each trophy animal. Therefore, we have installed an Outdoor Edge
Indoor Trophy Whitetail Processing Facility
(shown above). This area
was built with the trophy whitetail hunter in mind. No matter if the
weather is hot, windy, rainy or cold. If you are the hunter who
prefers to care for your own game? Know that you can comfortably
care for your harvest inside and out of the weather. Our Whitetail
Trophy Care Center is complete with an electric winch & hoist
system that was designed with a sliding rail system that can support
& hold multiple deer at the same time. We also have a refrigerator
couple for the purpose of cooling out your meat before freezing in
one of our provided chest freezers to prepare and preserve your meat
for the long ride home.
Our Meat Care center
(shown below) is a complete meat processing
area containing stainless steel counters, cutting board, Outdoor
Edge butcher kits & skinning knives, stainless steel sinks and meat
wrapping station and there is no charge for the use of our facility.
There will be $20.00 Charge per animal for each hunter that is needing to utilize any meat wrapping
materials that were pre purchased by Backwoods Whitetails Outfitters!
For those hunters that are willing to leave their harvest behind to be processed
and then shipped home. We have a local whitetail deer butcher "The Astoria
Meat Market" that exclusively butchers whitetails deer. This butcher will
process your animal to your exact specifications and then ship to your home or
business. Astoria Meat Market will cut steaks, grind burger to your liking. As
well, they also make some of the best specialty items you have ever tasted.
They have won awards for their outstanding salami's and make some excellent
breakfast sausages, deer bratwurst, Italian sausages, jerky sticks and more
