I don't know what Freecycle postings yield in other areas of the country, but around here they are a HUGE score! Just thought I would share this in case it gives ideas to others.

I posted an ad last night and am already set up to clean out an elderly lady's freezer on Thursday, pick up some slightly freezer-burnt meat from another family's side of beef later tonight, and got hooked up with a hunter who said he will give me all his venison scrap and organ.

You have to be sensible, of course, and make sure you have a good feeling about the people. But I have scored A LOT of free dog food on Freecycle and never once had an issue with it. It's just normal folks who let a few steaks and whatnot sit in the freezer too long.

I take everything they offer and don't get picky about seasoned, cooked, etc. If it's something I can't feed, I just toss it (or give it away, in the case of chicken which Duke is allergic to). I figure, they are doing me a favor, so I'm not going to ask them to pick through their freezers.

Just thought I would share. Now is the time of year people are clearing out freezers for the upcoming Fall deer hunt.

Hey Duke, thanx for the freecycle idea, I'm sure it will be beneficial to other members! I tried craigslist twice but all I got were very strange responses that I won't go into...lol
I have found a very friendly Deer Processor though who has been giving me some really nice Deer scraps every week! So for those of you who have Deer Processors close by I would definitely give them a try before Deer Season is over!!

I want to play!
