    Wait, I can bring duck meat in to be made into specialty products?!? Do other processors do this or just Indian Valley Meats?
    How about lynx sticks or polish porcupine? Just kidding on those two but I may seriously consider duck snacks.....

      I dropped my meat off on November 7th. This was my very first moose that I've ever shot. Come this Monday it will be seven weeks that I've been waiting, I'm getting nervous. I've been patient after reading this thread, but it's starting to wear off as I approach week 7.

          I will never use them again. I shot two bull caribou, had them processed and shipped down here to lower 48, had only 6 packs of steaks and about 70 lbs. of hamburger meat. They said that is all they could salvage. This wasn't my first rodeo of skinning and quartering and animal. I get more returned meat from the whitetails I kill down here in the lower 48. I know it was stolen....which is why, in hindsight, I should have just packed with dry ice and shipped down here myself. I thought I was just saving myself the hassle, instead, they are either enjoying my caribou backstraps and meat or enjoying the profits of selling my caribou for profit. I WILL NEVER recommend or use them again.

It would seem to me that this could be somewhat illegal because you would be selling game meat that you got from someone and selling it to a different person. It could be argued that moose meat is moose meat but you technically are selling someone else's meat

                  Now i have a buddy whi is a retired butcher who has everything by machines off off old seward. He retired from Mike's meat just down the road from mikes and he makes killer everything. So if anyone in an anchorage wants. A town processer. Hit me up for his number. He does one animal at a time. He has got 3 freezers, a big smoker. Grinders and sausages stuffers. And mixers and all that stuff. You wont be disappointed. Ken

                      I have been using IVM longer then I can remember and I have never received a bad product from them. I still do this even though I moved from Anchorage to Kenai in 1980. Do to being a lousy moose hunter I only took the heart and liver in from our caribou and they said it would be about 5 weeks as they were very busy. This was in late September and I had cleaned up the heart and liver and vacuum packed and froze it.

                      The liverwurst took about a month and it may be the best we have had and everyone likes it. They are very busy in the fall which is why they some times get backed up. A simple solution is to take a deep breath or find some one else you feel is faster.

                      I guess at my age I have learned to be patient and I don't want them to ever hurry when processing my meat. I feel the same way about a gun smith and the small business place in Iowa that makes wonderful one of a kind custom pool cues for me. Please take the time you need to get it right!

                        No minimum at Pioneer?? Since when? Last time we used them it was 25lb min per product or something like that....

                          I gave them another shot this year. As I understood it they were swamped last year after the state gave out 5k caribou permits and they didnít have the staff or space to get orders done in a timely fashion. This year I picked up my bou on the exact date they quoted me. Iíd say they got the kinks worked out. Iíll give Cathy my business again next year.

                              They quoted me 3 weeks for liverwurst, ended up taking 5 weeks.
