EXACTLY!I do my own. Have a fridge in the garage that is just for beer and deer.:darkbeer:
I'll shoot em, skin em, and quarter em the same night to get them into the fridge.
I do that as well. Those pieces grilled whole are fantastic!I don't cut individual steaks though. I just leave the chunks whole and when I wrap em for the freezer I mark the package; " S/R" short for steak / roast. When you thaw it for dinner you decide then if you want steaks, if so slice away at whatever thickness you feel like at the time. otherwise you have a nice little roast. This cuts down on possible freezer-burn and cuts down on butchering time.
