What is ya'alls recommendation for cooler size for general hunting purpose.

Is a 110 big enough to bring home a quartered deer or possibly 2 or do I need the 125?

Dont forget a few hog backstraps in there also

Thanks!!

If you bone it out you can get 3 hill country deer in a 125

I got a hole boned out elk in a 150 with plenty of room for ice

I have both. You can fit two young deer quartered pretty comfortably in the 110 if you don't keep the ribs. If you do keep the ribs you can fit two deer with ribs & necks in the 125. Depending on the size of the deer, you may need to de-bone the hind quarters. Just make sure you pack them right no matter the size....better to have more ice especially between the meat.

Two deer would be pushing it if it's just quarters backstraps and loins plus 2-6 hog straps I don't think there's gonna be much room for ice, unless your deer are small.

Like Bobo said, if you de-bone first (which I rarely do) you can pack quite a bit more meat. I only de-bone first if I think I'm gonna be pressed for space.

I just came back from Texas with a quartered fallow in a 100 qt Colman Extreme cooler. The buck was about 140 lbs live weight with the quarters, loins and tenderloins weighing 54 lbs at the processor. It easily held 40lbs of ice the first night and another twenty in the morning after draining the melt.

Neither. Too darned heavy! I had a YETI 165. It would hold 4 deer, quartered, plus ice. But it took 4 full grown men to load that cooler in the back of the truck when full.

I could handle the cooler empty. Barely. I'm 5' 10" with Popeye arms.

Based upon personal experience, I see no reason to own a 100+ quart YETI unless you're trying to outfit a bluewater boat. A 100-165 qt. Igloo will hold the same quarters and ice. And it weighs about 30 lbs. less than the YETI.

That's why you leave them in the pickup. My Icehole has been there from day one. Never took it out.

I keep a 35 qt for beer and water. when loaded it is rather heavy. I leave the 110 in the truck and load it there if I can. still two people can handle it without to much effort.

I used to go through an igloo almost yearly. They worked fine for the money. They tend to crack if anything is dropped in them. and just wear out with lots of use. I still have my original Yeti. Plus I can stand on it in my boat to fish in the bay.
