    How long to keep meat in fridge?

    Sorry if this seems a silly question but how long can I keep venison once butchered in the fridge safely.
    At the moment with roe I hang the beast in its jacket in the chiller about 4.C for a week then skin and butcher it. The meat is then eaten or frozen within a few days.
    I am now the proud owner of a shiny new mincer/sausage stuffer and need to know how soon I need to get on with the processing post butchering to be on the safe side. How do shops work out thier use by dates? Any advice greatfully recieved.

    You should be able to keep it at least another week in the fridge safely and probably even two at a push. Some people hang them for three weeks before even skinning! 4 degrees is well below the legal maximum of 7 degrees too which will extend your storage time.
