High double lung shot, pass through from a 125 gr. .308 moving up toward the hot end. Deer was almost froze solid this morning. Some sloshing still heard inside body cavity when moved around this morning. Is the meat still good?
How long can the guts stay in a deer in this kind of conditions and still be safe to make jerky out of?
Thanks!!

Deer should be fine if it was that cold.

I'm always a skeptic of dead things with guts in them that long. I'd probably stay away from anything in contact with the internal cavity.

Thanks Everyone!!
Not my deer and my brother forgot to take pics when he found him this morning.
I wasn't out there with him and was just inquiring for him.
I'm sure the meat is fine but he will get skinned and cut up in the non-gutted method and leave leave the body cavity in tact. Nothing close to guts will be kept and since the meat is about froze solid, I can't imagine there being anything wrong with it at these temps.
Thanks again!!

The cool part was we got to call off the guy who was coming with the tracking dog before he headed out and drove all the way over here. All worked out fine. Thanks!

If he hadn't have run 50 yds and made a U turn as soon as he was behind a cedar bush, we'd have found him last night.
Wasn't any blood trail at all just some spots 10' from where he was knocked down. I guess all that blood was draining down into his chest cavity. He probably piled up less than 60 seconds after he was shot and bled out. Most of the blood that was frozen into the dirt was still glued to his nose. Great ending for what started out last night to be not looking so good.

I bet it wasn't any fun gutting that deer with cold guts this morning. Glad you guys found it.
