Processing and mounting your deer at affordable prices!
Craven Deer Processing is a NCDA inspected facility. Deer have to be skinned and gutted to be processed between opening day of bow season until the day before muzzle loading season. There is just not enough demand for this service at that time of the year. During bow season time drop off hours are from 9am-6pm Mon-Fri and Sat 10-2. From the opening day of muzzle loader season until the last day of the regular season deer drop off hours are from 8am-8pm Mon-Sat. During these times you can bring it in any way you wish. We take them skin on, guts in, field dressed or quartered up.
We are closed on Sundays, Thanksgiving day and at noon on December 24th and all day Christmas day. Even a deer processor and his crew needs at least one day of rest a week!
We do accept legally harvested deer all year but it must be quartered and cleaned outside of the regular muzzleloader/gun season.
FULL SERVICE PROCESSING-$80
This service includes Skinning, gutting and processing to your specifications. No need to have to figure in time after the hunt to skin and gut anymore. At such a busy time of year it makes deer hunting a lot more enjoyable when you know that deer will not keep you from your job, family time and get togethers anymore.
This service is offered to our customers if you have already skinned, gutted and quartered the deer and bring it to us. If the deer is not quartered there is a additional $5 breakdown charge.

Craven Deer Processing is a NCDA inspected facility. We have NCDA inspectors here on a weekly basis. Each deer that comes in is put into a food grade container with your name, address and phone number and what cuts you prefer attached to it. Deer are NOTmixed with other deer to assure that what you get is exactly what you brought in. No coolers, bags, boxes or any other items are to be left on the premises. Any containers WILL be disposed of and a surcharge of $5.00 will be added to your bill to cover the disposal cost. We offer hamburger, steaks, cube steaks, roasts, stew meat and sausage. If there is a particular cut you prefer please tell us at check in. Please limit your choices to 3-4 different cuts per deer. All deer will be wrapped in butcher paper and frozen before you pick it up. We will call you once it is frozen and you will have 3 days to pick up your meat to avoid storage fees. Storage charges are $5.00 a day starting on day 4 until you pick it up or when 1 week has went by from day 4. After that point it will be disposed of properly and a bill of $35.00 plus processing fees will be sent to your address. Deer may be picked up during regular business hours.
