    Hi,
    I've never hunted before. What does it cost to hunt, slaughter & keep deer meat frozen for a couple of months? Just from an economic point of view if you live in Chicago & would have to travel a few hours to find somewhere to hunt & then have someone butcher the animal, does it make economic sense? I've been playing with the numbers and I'm not seeing a big savings. Any thoughts, ideas?

    Behere, thanks for your thread here in the GATE forum. While I do consider myself along the lines of a "subject matter expert" in Survival & Prep I can't answer your specific question overall. I would suggest you repost your question in the Survival/ Prep forum vs the GATE... Go to Forums, scroll down most of the page (past the GATE) and find "Great Outdoors" and the forum there.

    but....learning to butcher your own kills would probably greatly reduce the cost.
