the optimum environment for leat processing and aging is low humidity and 35-38 degrees F. If you allow game to freeze on the ground or hanging, then thaw for butchering, the refreezing, it is going to be of much lesser quality. I personally like to get the hide off as soon as possible if the weather is warm and wrap the whole carcass in cheesecloth or a game bag and get in a cooler. In colder weather, hang in a meat locker or protected shed. Leaving the hide on is best for this situation.
