I am going on a five day trip next week. I am debating how to handle the deer that we shoot(optimistic I know). The weather will be up in the 70's and 80's so i want to process the meat asap. I am thinking of bringing my vaccum sealer and cutting everything up and keeping it on ice. Curious what others have done and their results. Thanks for any info.

Sounds like your plan of cutting, packing and getting on ice is a winner. Shoot a big one.:darkbeer:

You don't even have to wrap the meat, just quarter it small enough to go into a cooler and keep it on ice and the drain valve open and you are good to go. It will keep for days upon days. Hope this helps.

One thing I do is to freeze water in 2 or 3 gallon jugs or Gator Aid bottles and put them in the cooler. They are bigger and they will keep colder, longer with the addition of ice and/or when ice runs out. Good luck and let us know about your trip when you return.

Dry Ice

If you can find a source dry ice tightly wrapped will take less space than ice, be more effective, and last longer.

Good hunting
:)
