We have a polar vortex coming in the next few days so I went ahead and quartered my aging deer while it was not frozen. I put the quarters in a cooler for a day and started cutting it up last night. I will finish tonight. I went 28 days hanging, cut backstraps and shoulders on day 29, and will be doing the hinds tonight on day 30. Meat had a different texture while cutting. The outer layer of silver skin basically peeled right off without having to use a knife. I will be sampling some of this meat this weekend. I am also thinking of better ways to do this process at my house. I am trying to justify the purchase of a small box trailer so I can temporarily partition off a section and add an air conditioner. I will probably not do it but I have had a lot of time to think over the last 30 days.
