How long will deer meat keep in refrigerator?
I killed a doe on tuesday november 24th and immediately cut her up and put her in the frig. I had to go out of town the next day and didnt get back until last night. Today makes 13 days and the temp is 37 degrees. Any input or opinions on whether or not this meat is still good. It doesnt look any different but it might have a little different smell but that could be the blood in the bottom.

Thats an aged deer. Meat will be perfect-Probably the best eating you ever had.

As long as it smells ok have at it. If it is whole muscle you could cut off any bad spots if there are any."All the Dude ever wanted was his rug back" Jeff Lebowski

"At 40 degrees F. we find that the meat tastes the best after 5-7 days of aging. This aging time will vary on the size of the deer, temperature and individual preferences. We hang our deer in a walk in cooler with a concrete floor. After several days the enzymes break down the venison muscle tissues and you end up with tender meat."
I say you can EAT UP!
Can't kill'em from the couch...

Never aged any 14 days. Cut a steak off it and smell the meat. IF it smells ok, cook it with NO seasonings and taste it. THEN if it tastes good, go for it. Most all ours hang for 7-9 days at around 35-37 degrees. It makes a hugh difference in tenderness & flavor. Good Luck.I eat,sleep,ride,talk,breathe,dream,live and love my Cookers !
