Caring For The Carcass
Treat your deer like a fine steak and you’ll get better table fare. "Cleanliness is the biggest problem we (Deer Processors) have. Hunters can field dress it, but sometimes the deer is full of dirt, leaves and bark. They haven’t used care in transporting the deer.
Wash out the carcass after field dressing it then pat the meat dry. If daytime temperatures climb above 50 degrees, pack bags of ice in the body cavity then putting more ice on top of the shoulders and hams. Covering the iced deer with a tarp or quilt will help it stay cool until you reach a processor.
Always line up your processor before your hunting trip. Ask the processor what days they’re taking deer, what time of day deer are accepted, how long it will take to process, and discuss how the deer will be processed.
