I preferred to process my own deer. I shot a doe this morning, and some things have come up that I need to take care of this afternoon. Itís going to be 49 or 50į this afternoon, is that cool enough to let a deer hang until this evening when I will have time to work on processing it. If not, Iíll have to find a processor to drop it off with.

IMO you're fine. Deer will still be cooling out. Hang her in a shade tree.

I done this a few years ago with a buck...just kept it under my shop's attached camper/tractor port. I think the highest temp was about 40 that day when I did it.
