What is the max temp you would want to store your deer carcus while hunting for number two? Refrigeration is not available. Night time temps should be in mid to upper 20's with daytime temps in mid to upper 50's.

Upper 50's is too warm for me. Maybe in the shade and stuff the rib cage full of ice?

I agree upper 50's is kinda warm, but I would think if you can keep it in the shade with a breeze it would be ok. I wouldn't want to hang it like that for days, but a day would be fine. I always try to take ice and ice chest just in case.

Chill it over night then quarter it up and put it in an ice chest before noon. If you will freeze some block ice at the house before you leave home, and tape the lid shut you wont have to buy any ice or worry about your deer... up

Bacteria growth really slows at 40* and below and that is what you want.

You guys would be shocked if you saw how our landowner would let a deer hang for a few days and it's warm 50 plus degrees or higher. I will say it's some of the best sausage and deer steaks I have tasted.

Yup. Always in the shade. Just think about how nice it feels to be in the sun on a 40* day, has the same effect through the skin of a deer.

My girlfriend shot a deer last week and when we found it the next day the processor told us the meat was no good. He said when it only gets down to the 40s you have about 4 hours for the deer. I don't know if he meant with the guts still in or after gutted though.

OK guys, I ask the question knowing I would
Be in Kansas today hunting and was going to try to fill both tags before coming back home. Well my buddy and I got in a two man box blind about 6:30 this morning and had 2 does and a 9 pt on the ground by 8:11. Field dressed my two and headed home at 10:30. Wife and I got to the processor about 4:30. We did stop south of Tulsa and put 2 bags of ice on them. Processor said they were in excellent condition. Looking forward to some steaks from them. Shortest deer hunt of my life.
