Default Meat processing near Oakland?

Anyone know of a good butcher shop (what is the politically correct term these days? Meat Cutter?) near Oakland, CA who can process game?

Napa is going to be the closest one I’d trust ... Browns valley meats

That's gonna be your best bet. There used to be a shop in Hayward and another in Livermore that processed game, but they are long gone.

Los Gatos Meats is the last man standing in the Bay Area. They do a pretty good job, but these days I just butcher it myself.

OP come back and let us know who you used.

I used a place in Lodi last year for elk. Great brats and summer sausage. Not cheap although I don't have much to compare it to.

There is a "Sticky" at the top of the hunting and fishing forum landing page, listing game processors. It shows two in Oakland. Link is below:

I'm also in Oakland, but was too cheap to pay someone to process my first deer. Google the "Scott Rea Project" on youtube. He has super in-depth how-to videos for just about EVERY game animal.

I have no butchering experience with big game and was able to do this my first time

We just use the tinder loins, fry them up the same day with southern fried potatoes, yum, we keep the backstrap for latter, everything else we make deer pork sausage with.

Did you call any ?

Star Meats
Ver Brugge Meat-Fish Poultry
Saba Live Poultry
Fair Deal Meats

I never brought them something to process, so I'm not sure if they will.

Let us know how it goes.
