Deer Processing

Whole deer processing is not available.  We no longer participate in or will receive deer for Iowa’s HUSH program.

Weaver Meats has a large variety of fresh and custom deer processing options.

Deer Season Guidelines:

We will start taking Deer trimmings in September with the first season and continue to accept deer until March 4th.

Custom processing must be paid in full at time of pick up.

We do not offer long term storage of deer meat. If deer is not picked up and paid for with in 14 days of ready date then storage fees will be applied to your total bill.

If not picked up by May 1st. deer will be considered abandoned and the DNR will be notified.

In the link provided below you will find our current deer prices.


Bagged Meat Guidelines:

We are no longer accepting whole carcasses, quartered or bone-in deer meat.

We reserve the right to refuse any trim not properly handled

We will not accept deer trim without a deposit! Boneless trim will require a $50 deposit at time of drop off!

Boneless trim must be rid of hair, blood, and excess fat.

Jerky meat requires whole boneless loins or whole boneless hind roasts. These cuts need to be in a separate clear food grade bag

Boneless trim must be in food-grade containers. Garbage bags are not food-grade and therefore meat will not be accepted that arrives in garbage bags. We have bags available for sale, if needed.

We have also made the decision to no longer accept quarters and bone-in portions of other wild game species such as elk.

All processed deer meat must be picked up and paid in full within 2 weeks after you are notified that your order is ready. Deer meat that is not picked up will be subject to storage fees.

All deer meat that we process is commingled, unless you have enough meat to make a 100# batch of one product.

We do NOT accept deer meat that has already been through a grinder.

Products may contain allergens such as milk, wheat, & soy. Please ask staff if you have questions about which allergens may be present in a specific deer product.

Getting your own deer meat back:

  • We require a 100 lb minimum of meat (including pork) per one custom item
  • There is an extra $0.50/lb charge on all “own batches”
  • Own batches will be subject to longer wait times
