Expense of the sealers, and bags, plus low volume of animals processed.

If I ever elk hunted again and got one I would probably buy one.

But not worth it for one deer, it disappears fast with family.

Plastic wrap then freezer paper will keep it reliably protected for well over a year and is much more durable and cheaper than vacuum sealing.  It's also faster and the packages are easier to stack in the freezer.

I only vacuum seal fish as you can't squish all the air out without crushing the fish and it doesn't have the freezer life that red meat does.
