Two words come to my mind: HONESTY AND INTEGRITY. The person who processed your deer had neither.
Your return weight will depend on several things. Was the deer skinned before you took it to be processed? Was the meat returned to you boneless or bone-in?
Regardless, you should have had a lot more meat. There is no question about it, you were ripped off.
3 front legs + 2 hind legs = 5 legs
This was a remarkable animal!
I'm just kidding with you.
I'm really sorry that you were cheated and I hope this guy loses all of his business.
