Deer Processed So Far This Fall

Thanks and congratulations to all the Virginia hunters for keeping us busy processing deer during archery and black powder hunting seasons this year! We’ve never seen that many deer (297, to be exact) come through this early. We look forward to a record-breaking gun season and working hard to be your favorite place to bring your deer for processing. Thank you to all the Virginia hunters for allowing us to serve you, and happy hunting!
