I was asked recently why I didn't take my ducks to a butcher to get processed and I said it was easy enough to do it myself. Out of curiosity I called around and found that there wasn't a butcher willing to process ducks in Los Angeles. Anyone know of anywhere to get game processed anywhere near LA?

I can't speak about butchers in LA, but where I live most "game" butchers are actually butchers for supermarkets.   They take a little time off in the fall to butcher live stock and game meat.   If you want a butcher I'd say go to a farm or small gun and tackle store and ask around.  But, like you said game birds are easy why waste the money.

Small game is simple to clean and process for yourself. My friend and I bought one of those meat saw/grinder combos a couple years ago and it has paid for itself a couple times over. We don't charge to process a deer for a friend we just take a trade/barter from them if they want a deer or something butchered. It also lets us "custom" cut what we are butchering instead of trying to explain it to a butcher elsewhere.


If it aint ducks, dogs or boats I cant talk now!
