I have used Kountry Meats in Elk Grove before, I thought they were rather expensive compared to other places I've used. But those places were outside Sacramento. Standard cut and wrap is all I ever had done. Seemed like when I got my meat back there was hardly anything left so I would rather cut it myself. Since I like to make a lot of jerky that is better for me.
The Mad Butcher is on Florin-Perkins. The cleanest butcher shop i have ever been in. The prices are fair and the turnaround is quick. I got my pig back in a week. The sausage turned out well and the packaging was first rate. I will be going back again very soon.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
