    We will be heading near Gillette, WY in October for an antelope hunt, and wondering if anyone had recommendations for a meat processor? It is only a doe hunt, but we hope to get a few and it would be nice to have them cut up and packaged for the drive home.

    If you have any experience or thoughts please let me know.

    Thanks!

    You need to contact Ernie on this site ..I took a mule deer and a antelope to a processor in Gillette ,but that was 8 years ago.. I doubt there are that many processors in that area.

    Know of a great outfit in Newcastle, WY, but that's 77 miles from Gillette.... FWIW: Cambria Custom Packaging. They did a great job with the capes, as well as the meat processing/wrapping.

    BIG HORN MEAT in Buffalo WY

    Koehler's isn't bad at all. Big Horn in Buffalo is also good. Avoid Olds processing in Gillette!

    I used Olds once and only once. Took in a head shot deer. Received about half the meat I should have. Had a steak with a bullet hole in it. Hair, bone chips... Never again!

    Koehler's is pretty decent. If you like GOOD breakfast sausage then they are GREAT. My antelope is going to be made into that this year. Good stuff. Bruce

    Koehlers too. Its kind of tricky to get to. Not well marked with signs so be prepared. I did not have agood experience with olds either. Meat all had bone dust on it.
