Finding a Butcher in New Brunswick

I just wanted to get a general feel to see if other hunters had difficulty finding a certified butcher that would take care of your deer. It seems that this is a dying breed and most commercial butchers will not cut deer meat if they are processing beef and pork for example citing inspection concerns etc.

I finally did find a butcher but his cost was about 15 cents per pound more than two years ago when i last got a deer. I guess supply and demand allows him to increase the processing costs.

Have any of you run into similar problems?
