  • Remember to let it age a little before you start freezing.

    Don't ask me how long, or even how. I just know the guys who let things sit around for a seemingly appalling amount of time have by far the best results when I get my freebies!

      My husband just returned from his moose hunting trip on Friday. They shot a moose (I'm not sure what day, they were gone fir 10 days) and they are letting it hang until this coming weekend.

      • People around here age the whole moose carcass for 7 - 8 hours before they skin it, then they let it hang for 40 - 60 degree days (not sure about the translation here). So, let's say it is 4 degrees C where the carcass is stored, the carcass hangs for 10 days before it is parted. However, the first 24 hours the carcass shouldn't be stored in less than 10 degrees C so rigor mortis can set in properly.

        Hanging this long for small game (such as deer or calf of moose) might be problematic though, because the meat may dry out, and in these cases one can consider letting it age with the skin on.

        I am no expert though, and I am just referring to what I've been told from the hunters around here.
        Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

        • Awesome everyone! I love all the input!!!!

          We gutted and skinned it within an hour of me taking it down..... then it has been hanging up in int the barn since Thursday night in 50-64 degree weather. However, on the second day we wrapped it in a game bag and have been letting it hang to "cure" (skin over) and from what I learned, letting it them hang for a few days reduces the "gaminess" of it out. So total time to "age" will be 3 1/2 days.

          When I go to make my ground venison and venison sausage, I will be mixing in about 10%-12% beef fat to counteract any dryness that may come from the hanging process.

          And if worse comes to worse.... I will wrap it in bacon! hahahahahah

          !!!
          So, later this afternoon when our event is over is when I will be taught how to butcher it...... oh yeah... this will be a blast!!!!


          Again, thanks everyone!!!
