    How long can a deer hang in a cooler or fridge before it needs to be packaged and put in the freezer?

    Couple ridges over
    Yea bout a week is all I like to leave it, seems like I left some a little longer one time and the meat started to have a funk to it, even though it was just a very small amount, I think it was still due to it being left in the fridge too long.

    My self I get in there as soon as I can but with work and other stuff it take me about two or three days. I can't tell any difference if it is the same day or a week.
