Powers Processing offers a local option for deer hunters
When Ralph Powers retired in 2004 after 30 years as a meat cutter, he thought a small deer processing operation might help keep him busy during the winter months.
Little did he realize the demand for deer processing in the New Richmond area.
In the first winter that Powers Wild Game Processing was open, Powers estimated that he handled 50 deer carcasses. Last winter the family business handled 410 deer and early indications are the number will be even higher this winter.
