Do you guys see any issues with de-boning deer , vacuum seal and freeze, then thaw later and grind and mix to make sausage or just seasoned meat and then re-freezing? I heard somewhere that this was not a good thing to do but I don't know. In the past I have always just done it fresh but I want to...

I have one that has been in the family for generations - old trapdoor in great condition. I remember watching dad and his friends shoot it when I was young but it has not been fired in years.
