    Default SE PA Deer Processing

    before I go a buy a doe tag, I was wondering if anyone knew of a place in SE PA to get a deer processed.

    Planning on shotgun hunting in White Clay or Evansburg (I've seen tons of does while out hiking). Hunted squirrels and rabbits last year (which are easy to process in my kitchen), and finally got a freezer big enough to put a couple deer in. Problem with having a condo in Philly is there's no place to clean a deer. I thought about hanging it up from one of the trees on the street but I don't think it would go over too well (my Dad thinks it's hilarious I'm going to get a deer processed...growing up in the Appalachian Mts in VA we used to make fun of the people that didn't butcher the meat themselves...and here I am)

    Thanks!

    I know there is a guy in Pt. Plesant & there is Frigid Freeze in Riegelsville...

    Going down Rt 1 SB towards the neshaminy mall there is a small sign on a pole for a guy too but I don't know of anyone who used him but the sign has been there for years; more than the 8 years we drove that way everytime we went to Gettysburg...there has to be others around Phila...

    Bill, the guy BEHIND Nesaminy High school, has a "drop off freeZer" and does a good job de-boning and "professional" packing of the cuts. Some prepped stuff (like the best venizOn Lebanon balogna I've found) AND will do "hunters for the harvest" butchering.

    My Place Smoked Meats in point pleasont (ferry road) has a skinning station, but you take it off the bone yourself for them to smoke. I use, and recommend BOTH. There is also a guy around the corner from Langhorne Rod and Gun who will take it off the bone and grind for you.

    Sucks to live in a residential area.

    Down here in Delco I go to Stuff It Taxidermy and Venison Processing. Bill is a very cool guy and his staff is top notch. They have great packaging and their cuts are nice. Bill also does some processing and sends out for specialties. (Great taxidermy work too!) There are two locations but I have only dealt with the Aston Location which is Bill's home.

    Aston
    360 Lenni Rd
    Aston, PA 19014
    610-558-3508
    Open 10am-10pm
    Drop off anytime

    Glenolden
    6 North Chester Pike
    Glenolden, PA 19036
    610-733-7509
    (Formerly Dean Bozman's)
    Open 10am to 9pm
    Drop off during operating hours

    Guaranteed to get your own deer back, no shared processing so you know it's yours. They do have a great turn around time too, sometimes you get your stuff back then next day.
    Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

    thanks everyone. Looks like I'll try to bag a couple does this year and fill the freezer!

    I don't have his address but here's his # 215 757 9798. I believe his name is Bill. The walk in is a nice feature, you can drop deer off at any time, fill out a form (in the freezer), and he'll call when done. Since I vacuum pack the meat myself, I just have him "bulk pack" it. It saves some money.

    I used the place in Aston. They rushed my deer for me for free because I had to get back to school in Pittsburgh. If I get a deer out east again it will go there for sure.
