Deer Processing? (NC Triangle)

    I'm a new hunter in the Triangle area of North Carolina (Hillsborough, west of Durham), and I have to admit the part of hunting that intimidates me most is what comes after the hypothetical kill. I know there are places that process deer carcasses, but I don't know:

    what they process them into;

    how they're paid or what they cost;

    what you have to do to the carcass before taking it to the processor (beyond gutting/field dressing);

    or who does this in my area.

    I'd appreciate a pointer in the direction of resources for this information, or someone who knows this stuff and has the time to type it out. I mean, I don't even know what to look at in the phone book (nothing I've tried yields anything). Thanks, oh wizened ones ;)

    I take mine to Noble meats in Spring lake, he just requires you to field dress it and skin it. He'll do the rest. I took my last kill to him (it was a button buck) and had him butterfly the backstrap and make breakfast sausage links with the rest. He did a great job (no grissle in the sausage at all). He charged me $30.

    I know there's a fellow who does it on Creech Road; I pass by his house and "deer cut and wrap" yard sign every day. Creech Road is in Southeast Raleigh/Garner BTW.

    If you would like more information, give me a holler and I'll be sure to write down his phone number tomorrow morning.

    Stop in your gun shop and ask there. They usually have a list of folks that do things like processing and taxidermy. Alot of processors want the skin. I know of a good one in Danville but that is a bit far for you to travel.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll start by taking 41R's suggestion; that'll probably net me someone a bit closer to home and hunting ground than Creech rd, though I appreciate the offer to help, Whiteknight.
