You are totally justified in having an issue with sharing your hard earned meat with those who don’t put in the time, labor or expense that you do. I’ve hunted my entire life and had this issue almost as long. This year I was in Montana for four weeks archery elk hunting by myself before my good friend showed up and hunted for 5 days. It’s a 12 hour drive from where we live and it was all the time he could get off work. I was trying for a large bull but after 34 days hunting I decided to shoot a smaller animal for meat. He had been complaining about not having any meat for a long time so I decided to share my elk with him. I was the one who shot it, cleaned it, skinned it, hauled it out and home and butchered it. He got half.
Some differences here with your situation. I was just sharing the meat with one person, not several. Another consideration is it was an elk. If you’re hunting with a group and you share your deer you might not have much left when you’re done. With my group of friends the usual practice is to keep your own meat. Those who are successful are usually the ones who put in the most time and work, and to reward those who don’t or won’t isn’t fair. This year I already had a two freezers full and I felt sorry for him.
The best thing is to discuss the plans for meat sharing or not well before the hunt starts. This way everyone knows the rules of the game and hopefully hurt feelings will have healed before the hunt begins. It will also inspire those who don’t put in the time to participate a little more. Remember, if you shot it, it’s your animal. If you decide to share some of it with the guy who helped you pack it out, and nobody else, it’s your choice.
