I am not young but new to the sport of deer hunting. I want to find the proper way to have a successful hunt including the post-kill prep. I just read in "Field and Stream" that the correct way is to field dress the deer and hand him (her) in a cool temperature for several days. I do not have the space or place to do that. I remember one of my dad's old hunting buddies cutting his up immediately after field dressing and putting the quarters on ice. He would salt the ice and change the ice and water daily for 4 days. Any additional thoughts out there? I want a good hunt and want good meat as well.

Thanks

I DO ALLMOST THE SAME I DONT ADD SALT AND DEPENDING ON HOW FAR THE DEER RAN AFTER I SHOOT IT, I WILL KEEP IT ON ICE LONGER THE FURTHER THE DEER RUNS AFTER THR SHOT BUT 3-4 DAYS ARE A MIN...ALL THAT ICE AND COLD ICE WATER DRAWS THE BLOOD AND GAME TASTE OUT OF THE MEAT...

It works pretty well, the ice and the salt and making sure to change the water daily.
