The Return to Civilization

Posted on October 14, 2011


Tuesday was good. I got the 27 pounds of meat in styrofoam coolers with dry ice. On the way to the airport I traded styrofoam for a hard plastic cooler. I was pretty unsure how the meats would fair after twelve hours outside the freezer. The answer? Really well, actually.

Here’s the payload after three thousand miles:

Still frozen like a rock.

First thing on arrival I took a packet of venison backstrap medallions and put them in the fridge to thaw.

Now my stretch goal is to take a another deer during the NY season, or perhaps the VT season, as those are the two places where I’ve been invited to hunt by friendly landowners on the east coast.
