Well, my brother shot a large doe, I skinned it and quartered it and cut the back straps off, since we live in a Chronic Waste Area and cannot legally transport it whole out of the area.
After getting the whole deer made into Deer Sticks - since there is no beef in a deer, and the Amish added cheese to half, and two deer bologna, the total bill came to $211.00
Deer Pepper Sticks were $3.25 a lbs
Deer Pepper sticks with Cheese were $3.50 a lbs
Deer Bologna was $3.00 a lbs and each bologna weighed 3 lbs
This is all wet weight, not the finished product.
De Bone the deer was probably $35.00
Not that it took them very long to cut the meat off the hind quarters and off the front legs.
The Amish has it down to the point of where they cut the major portion of the meat off and anything still sticking to the bones is thrown in the dumpster.
I think there was 25 lbs of plain sticks, 20 lbs of cheese sticks and 2 bologna's.
Not all of the meat used to make these products is deer meat, hence they add pork, pork fat, and cheese. Pork was $1.69 a lbs at the time, Pork fat was $1.00 a lbs and cheese was $3.50 a lbs. - as far as I could estimate.
I gave my brother $65.00 for 12 lbs of Cheese Sticks and 2 Deer Bologna's.
12 x 3.50 = 42
2 x 9 = $18
42 + 18 = $60
That gave him $5.00 towards his bill for paying to cut it up.
The shop gave him $5.00 for the hide.
Two years ago, Pepper sticks was $1.25 a lbs and cheese sticks were $1.50 a lbs.
Deer Bologna was $5.00 each
So basically the price has doubled on everything.
