Well im a little woried...

I got one the other night...

It was a good while before chilling... :problem: ...no...it was a long while... :thumbsdown:

its quartered & in the fridge for now...ill wait a couple of days & see how it is.

I think it'll be ok,.or maybe i say that from a hope or denial point of view...not sure... :unknown: ... although the skin got quite warm after getting it off so i expect to loose a bit of fur out of it (it really is a beautiful fur...!!!), but hopefully the meat is ok.

Where i was, actually do have the option to get it in a chiller at the latest by the next morning, but its a 1.5 hr drive back there, & right now i couldnt get back for 2 weeks, so i took it home...i also dont trust that someone wouldnt help themselves to it either, as i really dont know them... :unknown:

I get what you mean by smelly...its certainly letting go of a little pungency by the time it made the fridge... :problem:

Out of curiosity...how long is too long out of the cold for you guys...?
Actually...scratch that--i guess youre already answered that, & im hoping you'll come back with a more suitable answer that suits this situation... :lol: :unknown:

It was a Fallow doe...my best guess is she was young & just come on 'adult'--lets call it 18yo in human terms......was all by herself & not going anywhere...no young with her...maybe someone already shot them---although she wasnt at all milky or any signs of recent milky titty action... :lol:

Thanks... :drinks:
