    Venison Snack Sticks

    We compared to markwells prices, for snack sticks which is $8 per lb, We do all our processing, hanging, skinning, grinding etc, so our prices came out right around $2.20 per lb. Not counting our expense on vacuum sealer bags, so i guess if i add that it bumps to about $2.70 per lb.
