I read that while shaking my head...........................not going to turn out to good for the processor. Going to be some very upset people once they figure out that their freezers are not going end up with their deer in it.

Saw that place on my drive, actually though about giving them a try.

Thank goodness I did not.

Whitaker’s processing in Iowa Park is the best in Texas IMO. Didn’t even know there was a second place.

I was super disappointed to hear this and was also planning on trying them this season, but after like 2-3 weeks they stopped accepting deer because their freezers were full. I also saw them advertising trying to hire butchers during the season. Seems like whatever the circumstances were they could not handle the work load. Whitakers is the best processor here but unfortunately they are limiting their intake to 1,200 deer a year and only a certain amount a week. We really need another quality option in Wichita Falls, located on the highway they would definitely get plenty of business.

Probably a labor problem. I know a guy who recently got out of the business because he couldn't find/keep people to help do the butchering. Many of these places are in smaller towns where there's not much of a labor pool. He said his last season just about killed him - of the thousand deer they took in he processed the majority by himself. I can see how that would get old quick.
