Default RE: How Long will meat stay on Ice?

I hang, or age my meat at least a week before I butcher it. If it is on ice, i would assume it is cooler than 40 degrees, it will be fine for up to a week. I will hang my deer out in my shop for a week, as long as the temp doesnt get above 40, I like about 35 degrees. If it does get hotter, i quarter it, and put it all in a fridge I modified to hand deer in. Agian, I wont touch it for a week. The only thing you want to watch out for, while ageing/storing, is either freezing it or letting it get too hot before processing.
