Doesn't necessarily help you now but this is what I do with my deer. I don't really have a place to hang for extended times nor a deer fridge.

I usually skin and quarter my deer as soon as I get them home. I then put them in my Orion cooler. Ice on the bottom of the cooler, two two by fours set on the bottom of the cooler then racks on top of the ice and 2×4s. I put the quarters on the racks then loose cuts in a tray that sits on top. Let it sit in there for a controlled environment to personal preference. Also works well for transporting from deer camp to home.

Like I said doesn't necessarily help now but maybe a thought for the future. Congrats on the success. 6caae87f825e6bb8ddb75afff2b05fc4.jpg
