I took a deer and elk I got there. When i went to pick it up I ended up with some beef instead of my elk. They said they didnt know where mine went. I got my deer meat.  I will never use them again!

I had last years elk cut up and packaged there.  Great deal and they did a great job.  Not sure about hanging though.

Owens meats is a member of this site.  You might just want to PM them to get your specific answer.  Here is what he goes by as a member name, "Don Owens".

If I remember correctly it's $20 a day...obviously they want your business...if it's for a day or two it may be worth it?  Try fruit farmers...I was in a pinch once and found a farmer who was more than willing...he also sent me away with a whole box of peaches that were orgasmic and didn't want any $???!!  The best fruit a man could eat.  Perfectly ripe. 

I've never had any problem with owens (I've actually enjoyed BSing with the guy who takes the game - forgot his name - but he wasn't there last year?)...I've always liked the idea of cutting & wrapping my own elk meat (I normally cut my deer up myself) but giving that I archery hunt, the heat is a factor unless you have access to a large fridge or walk-in.  One day I'll have my own processing place for myself, friends, & family.

Haters don't answer questions.

twenty bucks a day is robbery.  I will call them and get the truth-  that's a bunch a BS. 

They got the best rib eyes - buy them alot - along with spicy pepporoni every time I pass through.

Diane runs the place after John died many, many years ago. I think she was his granddaughter or daughter, not sure.

Just finished off a bag of jerky from Owens.  :drool: By far the best jerky ever made. I want more every time I go by Cle Elum.

Thanks for reminding me.  Just ripped off a foot of Owens pepperoni and a small hunk of jerky for the pre-bedtime snack.   :EAT:

Oh, that old guy died (I haven't been in there for years)?  That's too bad but he did manage to poison me with what I think was old jerky before he left this earth.  To be fair, I'd always had good luck with that place previously.

My departing gift to you: the runs for 3 days.  Have fun!

Hmm...this was about 8 or so years ago.  So, unless John made a special appearance for me, this was somebody else.  I'm no expert on ghosts/spirits/paranormal stuff - only what I've learned from Ghosthunters - but I'm betting that there is a higher likelihood that it was someone else and not John's ghost.

 :drool: I got another pound of jerky Saturday Morn!  :drool: Also got my in-laws hooked on it, so they bought a pound. While visiting, we mentioned we were celebrating my kids birthday, and they gave both kids a big piece  of jerky stick. Kids loved it! I feel the Owens are good people running a good business. :tup:

I never miss a stop in at Owens when in CE.  Last time I bought 3 yards of there meat sticks and polished off the whole bag on the way home.  That stuff is like crack to me.  Their jalepeno and cheeses brats are also outstanding.  Never had game processed there, do it all myself, but I wouldn't hesitate.  Seems like real good guys there.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

You know, I have to chime in here. I got a moose in Spokane last fall and I was traveling back with it about to hit the pass when traffic was stopped due to an accident or something. THis was going to force me to miss my butcher in Puyallup. So i was forced with a decision to try someone completely brand new with probably the only moose I will ever get. I was very nervous about bringing it to Owens, but I have to say that it turned out very well. Their "grandpas Sausage" was good too. Other than I expected a few more steaks than we got, but it was probably due to our field dressing practices and the fact that we had many roasts. The only thing I would stress is communicating very clearly with them on how and how much you want processed.


Overall good experience for me and I would use them again.

Just my 2 cents

Kind Regards,

Brianb231
