I just shot a sow and it will be an hour to hour and a half before I can get her gutted. 50 degrees, will the meat still be good?

At 50 degrees, as long as not gut shot, a couple hours isn't gonna hurt.

I agree, although if I know I have to wait an hour or so (As in, trapped four hogs and it's gonna be a little while before I get to the last one) I'll hose 'em down to try to help cool the meat. Then I make sure they're lying in the shade. At night, of course, I don't worry about the shade thing. But then, I generally check traps in the morning. I hate staying up 'til midnight cleaning hogs.

I would take the straps and the hams (leave hide on) pretty quick and ice them down.

The meat is fine. It takes longer for the meat to spoil than what some people think.

I would agree with Skinnerback... think about what our forefathers 2 centuries ago had to do in the field and obviously had no coolers full of ice !!!
