not sure where to put this so please feel free to move it if necessary.
I have just come back from a Meat Hunt on a local(ish) Farm here in New Zealand. It seems to me that most Kiwi's don't seem to hang onto the liver of the Deer they kill, but I think us Brits seem to do it more often.
I went prepared with some Zip lock bags to put my prized livers into, and I laid them next to my water bladder in the back pack so they would keep reasonably cool, until I got back to the Shearers quarters where we were staying which had a fridge.
The next day I headed off home and put the livers in my own fridge with a view to cleaning them and using them today, last night I opened the bags to clean them up, and the smell was so bad that I wouldn't have given them to the dogs... so where did I go wrong, and how do you guys do it there?
Admittedly the weather was hot on my return leg, but the livers were in the back of the truck, next to ice bags which were in each deer's cavities, so "should" have been OK.
Also any tips on how to get rid of the stink of old deer blood from car carpets would be most welcome too.... just hope I don't get stopped by the cops!
Thanks for any help
