now that's funny! but seriously, just pack as much ice as you can and get it to the processor as soon as they open in the morning.

I think this is a really great tip, I will have to get more ice and a cooler and then I'll have it ready. Thanks!!

I have owned a deer processing plant for 12 years and have see all kinds of people that think they know what is correct. Call the local processor, he will probably stay open until you get there with the deer or he may let you put it in his cooler until he opens the next day. I stay until midnight on some busy nights. If you clean it yourself, please WASH it and place it in a cooler with ice-keep the water drained. Keeping a deer in water does not make it tender, just slimy. Last, if you do not have the place to skin, gut and cut up a deer it is a hassle. Just call the processor.

Default Keeping a deer overnight

I don't know what your check-in requirements are in your state but if you have checked the deer, I would skin it, cut out the backstraps and tenderloin, quarter it and save the neck, put it in a cooler and ice it down. Usually, the rib cage is hardly worth saving. It's worth the effort as a sour deer is a real heartbreaker and 60 degree weather will sour one real fast. If the deer is gut shot or you have a bad field dress, wash the cavity if you can. Good luck with your hunt.
