only one way to find out , gut it , clean it , and smell the meat , bad meat will have an odor to it that you won't mistake for good meat. We cut 100- 150 deer a year my grandfather and myself , and you can tell the one's you wouldn't want to consume , and we advise the people of that also !

The meat would be fine if it were gutted in those temps . But being that it lay for 2 days with the guts still inside with the heat build up and gasses and all . No cut the rack off and call it a day

ORIGINAL: scarp262

my dad shot a 7 point buck tuesday (11-27) and he tought he missed due to no blood found and no hair,yesterday(11-29) when he was hunting he found the buck that he "missed" and beingtwo days old itsmelledrank and the guts were all mush....Getting to the point I was just wondering if you think that i should even bother trying to salvage any of the meet.
2 days, smelled rank, guts all mush If you clean and eat this deer, I will nominate you and your Dad for a Darwin award.

I wouldn't eat it. I agree that it sucks to lose it but something will eat it. However, ifhe keeps the rackhe should tag it....it's thehonorable thing to do.
