Cody Carr’s Hunting Adventures will field dress and deliver your animal to one of two reputable local meat processors. We have worked with these businesses for years and have found they always do an excellent job for our clients!  There are freezers on site to store meat and capes.

Clark Fork Custom Meats (406) 826-0169

Average costs of processing your animal are:
  • Elk: $250 – $350
  • Mule Deer: $50 – $70
  • Antelope: $50 – $70

* These price estimates do not include the making of jerky or sausage.

Shipping can be very expensive to ship processed meat home because it usually has to be shipped next day. Jerky and sausage is less expensive to ship because it doesn’t require to be shipped next day.  Many of our clients drive to Montana for their hunt in order to transport the meat back home. Most of the processors we work with are very accommodating and can have the meat ready to go in 1 or 2 days.


If a client wishes, Cody Carr’s Hunting Adventures can deliver the antlers and cape to Alpine Artistry, the world-renowned taxidermist (406) 726-3120. If room is available we can deliver your mount to the PA show and schedule pickup the last day of the show so we can display your trophy.  It is $75.00 to deliver deer, $125 for elk and $150 for life size animals.

Prices for taxidermy of your Montana trophy can vary greatly depending on the type of animal and the desired mount. Feel free to contact Alpine Artistry if you have any questions for your particular hunt.

We have freezers on site if you want to take your hide’s home with you after hunt.  If driving throw a small chest freezer in your trailer or back of your pickup truck to transport meat and trophies back home.
