This year, we will not be accepting any whole deer carcasses at our Arlington location. Whole deer will still be accepted as usual at our Edgewood location. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Processing venison at the Edgewood Locker is not a sideline. It is an integral part of our business and was the driving force behind the construction of our new facility in 1997. With over 30 homemade venison products to offer, we are confident you will be 100% satisfied. Whether you bring your deer in field-dressed, quartered, or boned-out, we will process your deer in the most efficient and wholesome manner possible.
During the 2008-09 deer season, we processed 3,750 whole deer carcasses. In addition, our customers brought nearly 125,000 lbs of boneless deer to be made into our award winning sausage. That is over 340,000 lbs of homemade venison products!
FYI: Shotgun season whole deer carcasses will be processed before boneless venison that is brought in. We will do our best to process the meat in the order it’s received.
No matter if your address is Edgewood, Arlington, Galena or Boscobel our goal is to gain your repeat business. Year after year, at Edgewood Locker, Inc., we aim to achieve that goal.
We also accept the Food Assistance Card on venison processing.

In order to simplify pricing for our customers, the price per lb is based on the raw weight of the product after the pork, cheese, etc. is added. All of the extra ingredients are included in that price.
To figure the total ending raw wt of your product, calculate the # of lbs of venison you have and multiply the % of gain for that product.
