I generally let the deer hang over night, the meat chills through the night and then we dress them out in the morning.
If the weather is quite warm my mates and i will dress thwm straight away and put them in the chiller..
I tend to let my meat sit in a fridge for about a week before freezing it.
Here are some meat animals on my last hunt
First photo is of some does shot on dusk. We got some beautiful meat from them. They were shot with a .270win.
Second photo is a couple more does shot the following morning
Third photo is of a spiker stag shot the next afternoon we butchered that stag for meat too.
I posted some photos of a nice stag shot by me on the last day.. 25 inch Fallow in another thread..
All deer shot are Fallow deer, and we got one mungrel red stag i think we got 9 all up in three days.
