    Totally worth the cold weather to finish out my season with some more meat this year.
    Pictures were not so great because my camera man was frozen solid!

    It's fun to get one when it's that cold.

    Good job. I’m not hearing to many success stories. I think a lot of hunters are hibernating!!

    I let it hang over night in our shop (no heat) and it froze almost completely solid. I had to use a torpedo heater to thaw, skin, and process it. Definitely processing sooner next time.

    I think I would’ve let it hang a while. Unless you were strapped for time.

    Your idea of fun is a bit different than mine.


    I prefer in the low 40's myself. :D

    That's not a problem we see here in Missouri very often!

    Probably could have left it hanging until March

    I’m sure at least a couple more weeks for certain. Then maybe a couple days to thaw out with the hide still on.

    I’m glad it was you skinning that deer and not me. That had to be to much like work! Congrats on the deer.
