RE: Smoke house/deer processor...
I doubt you miss out on all that much if you dont butcher your own deer. If I dont have the knowledge, space, or time to do it myself, isn't it better to pay someone who does? I understand that there are bad processors out there. There are bad doctors out there too, but I'm not gonna start operating on myself!
Saying I'm missing out on the total experience of hunting by not butchering my own deer is the same as saying I'm missing out on the total experience of driving because I dont replace the engine and trasnmission in my car by myself.
