Makers of Premium Venison Sausage and Other Fine Venison Products
We have had a tremendous amount of request for skinning deer lately. From now until February 10th, we have decided to offer free deer skinning as long as we are processing your meat. (You will still have to pay the deboning fee.) Sorry, but we will not cape the deer and we will not skin if we are not processing your meat. We will extend our weekday hours from 7pm until 8:30 pm for skinning deer only (no pickups). On Saturdays we close at 6, but you can drop off your hairy deer until 8:30pm. Sundays we will open from 5pm-8:30 pm for deer that need to be skinned only. Our normal lobby will not be open and our staff will not be here for pickups. We will see how it goes and then make a decision for next season. Please remember we can not accept any Alabama deer without game check confirmation numbers and since you can not cross state lines with deer bones, we can not skin deer shot outside of Alabama. All deer must be fresh kills shot the same day. We will not skin deer that were killed the day before. We hope this makes it easier for everyone to get out in the woods and shoot some deer! Have fun!
Please remember to game check your deer within 48 hours of harvest. We do have to have a copy of the transfer of possession to accept your Alabama deer meat because of new State regulations. The information can be written on any sheet of paper. For out of state hunters, yes, we want your business! Because the law changed a few years ago and it is illegal to cross State lines with deer bones, you will need to debone your meat before bringing it to us. We would love to process your out of State deboned meat.

CARL'S FACT PAGE
These are some of our more frequently asked questions.
What do you vacuum pack?
EVERYTHING! Quality is important, and we feel the best quality is maintained through vacuum packing. We have purchased a new roll stock machine that uses thick 7mil film to keep your meat fresh for a very long time.
Is there an extra charge for vacuum packing?
No, because quality is so important to us, we vacuum pack all of our products. We want you to be happy with your product if you pull it out of your freezer a year from now. Vacuum packing ensures that your product will keep its quality.
How do you package your burger?
We now vacuum package all of our burger in 2 pound, thick 7mil vacuum film. Bye Bye thin bloody burger bags, hello fresh and clean!
Do I need to call before I drop off my meat?
No, customers may drop off their meat anytime during regular business hours. Every customer is important to us and we will always "make room" for your meat. We have a great deal of storage space, and will not turn down your meat because we are low on space.
Why do you do your pickups by appointment?
You can pick up your meat anytime during regular business hours, as long as we know that day, atleast one hour in advance. The reason we do it this way is so that you don't have to wait in our lobby while we go in the freezer to move all the meat around to get your order. It also helps to keep us organized, since during gun season, their are usually numerous people dropping off and picking up at the same time. It is our experience that an organized effort produces a much better result.
Do you skin deer?
For a limited time, we will skin your deer. We do not cape. Our normal lobby will not be open for pickups after hours, but you can drop off your deer with game check information until 8:30 pm Mon - Saturday and Sundays from 5-8:30.
