Was surprised to read that you can have as few as 3 hours to recover a deer in 50 degree weather.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

I believe it. I recall an archery buck shot in S. TX in October by a friend. Took us about 2.5 hours to find that deer, and by then he was very bloated and starting to stink. Got him skinned out and cooled off just in time.

Me too. I've got a doe I shot in October in the freezer now that hung for 2 days in 50 and 60 degree weather, although I don't think the meat ever got that warm. Ate some this passed weekend and it was fabulous. food

I loved reading that first introduction into the article. I could have written that word for word.
I remember the old recurve and fiberglass arrows I started with. I even have the scar on my left hand where a cracked fiberglass arrow shattered when I shot it and the back half of the arrow ended up sticking out of my hand. eek2

I know, I know. The temps got down into the low 40s/high 30s at night. But they did climb during the day. The deer was hanging in a shed and I'm sure never warmed to ambient temp. I was concerned regardless. My buddy said, "Trust me. I've done this dozens of times." So I trusted him. When we finally skinned her out the meat looked great. No funny smell, and it actually looked like I just killed it that day.

He's had several meals so far, and my family has had one. We're all good. No one's sick and my buddy even likes his meat pretty rare. Very tasty doe. food

YMMV. grin

I had a hind quarter that was on ice for two weeks in my garage. Fraid to eat it, but made steaks and jerky any way, the 2 pounds of jerky tastes great

I had one hanging from thursday to sunday and is now on ice. Of course the whole time it was hanging the highest temp was 45 degree.
Now he is on ice.

So every hunt in S. Tex would have spoiled deer. You hunt and shoot what you can until about 10 o'clock. Deer all taste good too me.
