i got a quote to have my deer ground for .65 cents a lb. it was ready to go into the machine all trimmed and all. i ended up driving using a friends grinder 60 miles away. with all the expences gas, wrap it cost me .21 cents a lb. also i was able to cube 6 loins and 6 backstraps.
i know everyone dont have that option, but it really needs to go into your mind. couple friends get together and buy ur own equip. i will be getting my own now!!!
it does seem a little high. good luck
They wont take you guns, just the one thing that makes them functional!!!!
