So there is a good chance that it is gonna be pretty warm when my deer hunting season opens. I wanted to ask if anyone knew how long does it take for meat to go bad after you shoot a deer in pretty warm weather (80-90 degrees)? If it is hung up in the shade how long do you guys think i have to get it to the butcher?

If it is 80 to 90 degrees, in the shade or not, i would have it to the butcher within 12 Hours Max. or quartered and in a cooler with ice.

Ok yea that was what i was kinda thinking. My opening day is october 16th, and it probably will be around in the 80's. hopefully its not gonna be any hotter. i have a few spots in mind that i want to hunt but if i slam a deer it may be a while for me to get it to the butcher.

just follow the contours of the muscle and do what you can with it. If you want steaks out of the big muscle groups make steaks. If you want burger too then save youre trimmings and take that to the butcher.

I would agree chill it asap cut it up soon. I have put caribou in a creek to chill them when it was warm, ice helps, just don't soak them too long they need to cool most importatly. In the old days they have stored bear meat in the creek to keep it cool. But bear is different.If I can't age deer the way I usually do I age it in the refrigerater when I need it.
