Recently a good friend of mine was able to harvest an 8 point buck which you can read about in our 11/25 - 11/26/2011 Hunting Trip Post. After the harvest, we decided to split the deer meat and since it was warm out, we took it to a butcher. I had recently heard about a new butcher that had opened up in Baltimore County at the Maryland line called Uncle Buck's. This is a lot closer than my butcher whom is in Littlestown, PA. So, I decided to take the deer to this new butcher as they seemed to have a very good selection and boasted vacuum sealed packaging on everything. They are reasonably priced and have a pretty fast turnaround time on the processing.
I got several different things out of the deer so that I could try what they had to offer. I got steaks, hickory jerky, hamburger patties, and cracked pepper snack sticks made for my friend and me to try. When I picked the deer up, everything was vacuum sealed as promised and ready to go straight into the freezer. The cuts of meat looked good too. As of right now, all that I have tried out of the deer is the hickory jerky and it is very tasty. I look forward to the hamburgers, snack sticks and steaks, but from what I saw and smelled, they too will pass my test for a good butcher.
Pricing is reasonable, like anywhere they require a deposit. The best part is that they have great hours. Also, make a mental note that if they are not there and you want to drop off a deer, all you have to do is give them a call and they will be happy to meet you at their shop so you can drop off your deer. This is great advantage for those of us that hunt public land. Normally by the time you get out of the woods with your deer it is past business hours, so being open Sunday and being able to call if they are not around is awesome.
