    I know the patented answer is do your own.. first off it's too hot second no where to cut one up, I would love to process my own deer ,just don't have a place to do it. I plan in the near future in building a small cooler and a place to cut up deer.. but for now is the there a Processor within 20 miles of Waco , Irvin or Richmond. I have used a couple near Lawrenceburg but that's a tad far from me now. I understand I still might have to do my own but at least for now would prefer not to.

    Looks like the place in Winchester is the closest, about 25 miles.

    There's a place in Cartersville. Believe it is one of the Yoders from Preacherville that opened it a year or so ago. There's also J&V in Preacherville just outside Lancaster.

    Mennonites usually do good work but they tend to mix deer especially on days when they grind the meat, it's all done together and you get back the amount you should but no guarantee it's all your deer.

    There is one in Versailles Ky I can’t remember the name of it. I used them once on a 8 point I had harvested they did pretty good work. Also there is one in Sadieville called hi view meats. They did a couple for me no complaints.

    all of the above advise is fine but it doesn't matter how far you have to drive I recommend Boones in Bardstown Kentucky, who have handled all of my dear for the past five years including beef and hogs that we process on a yearly basis, super clean facility with many options on the finished product, it's one of those you get what you pay for type of deals it takes me an hour and a half to get there but well worth it when I sit at the dinner table

    I have been happy with Chandlers in Winchester. They turn your deer around pretty darn quick and do a good job.

    "Mennonites usually do good work but they tend to mix deer especially on days when they grind the meat, it's all done together and you get back the amount you should but no guarantee it's all your deer."

    These people are Amish and do good work. J&V is very clean and I don't think they will mix your meat.

    I’d say most places mix ground meat. Too labor intensive not to.
