I can tell you it already started happening with me....wasn't going to spend 15 bucks i saw at the butcher for some loin backs that were just 11 dollars last week and 10 dollars last month!

Weird thing seems to be that while prices at my local HEB have gone up just like everybody else's, it seems like everything is being advertised as either choice or (mostly) prime instead of select like it was a year ago. Might be that feeders are holding animals longer and feeding them up to higher grades. I got to know the meat manager at my HEB and he still offers me a "deal" occasionally when I stop in and buy a bunch of meat.

I don't think I'm "delusional" to say its cheaper than the deli counter. Of course there are costs associated with hunting. In my case, as described, I got the ham for free from a buddy (he won the hunting trip for free too). I also don't consider my time hunting as a "cost" even though my time is worth money. Same could be said for all of us that spend time BBQing no? For all the hours I put in prepping, cooking, serving, etc. I could probably spend half as much time and money and feed my family at Famous Dave's, but they don't serve ham like that at Famous Dave's...
