    What a great idea for a thread.

    My dad is a Custom Butcher.

    He has one of the few custom meat shops left in the United States were you can have the Butcher come to the field and butcher the animal, bring it to his shop, process the meat the way you want it.

    He specializes in all aspects of preparation to include specialty items such as smoked/cured sausages, hams, beef sticks etc.

    Needless to say I grew up in that environment and still mess with preparing the animals I harvest during hunting seasons (i.e. Deer/Turkey/Beer) into the same types of products.

    If you ever find yourself in Northome Mn, stop in and Say hi to Mal and Donna (My Parents).
    They always have some sort of specialty treat ready for a taste test.


    Wow...That's very interesting Marr. Sounds better than Hickory Farms by a long shot too. Do you or your folks do any Taxidermy Work with the Birds/Animals you harvest for food?? Just curious?

    Cheers!

    No, it would probably be way to hard to do stuff like that and still pass the state and federal inspection requirements.

    They do save the hides of the animals they butcher and sell them to a factory in the Cities.


    I have one buck mounted on the wall that I harvested with my blackpowder rifle a few years ago and some turkey bears hung from the gobblers I've got with my shotgun and bow.

    Wow...nice looking buck (White Tail Deer) there. Thanks for the Pic Marr. I smoke a lot of meats...especially Salmon out here. They have re-introduced wild Turkeys here and I smoked some of that too. I have never tried Venison. I assume you can make Jerky, sausage, and other cured meat food products with it??

    Thanks for the Invite....will have to stop by and try some when I visit later this year.

    Cheers!

    Very cool thread!
    My father is one of my heroes, as corny as that sounds, so I enjoy talking about him. And from what I have read, there are some others here whose fathers have had pretty interesting lives too.

    My old man was a Green Beret in Vietnam - part of Mike Force.
    There is a book out by the same name written about his unit that talks about him several times.

    After the service he became a police officer in Alexandria for 10+ years.
    When we moved to the Twin Cities he worked in corrections until he retired.

    Now he is retired, but still works some odd jobs to keep from getting bored.

    Thank him for his service my friend.
    His era probably deserves to hear it some more.

    Absolutely.....Thanks him for me too nodakpaul. Corrections is no easy job either. Sounds like he is probably really enjoying his retirement. Well and why not?
