Default rotten deer?

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.

I don't know. Maybe take it to a meat processor and see if they can salvage any. What was the weather like between shoot and find?

No it is a bad deal and people hate to see it but is it really worth risking your health for a few pounds of meat?? I say dont eat it. Just learn from the experience.

Go ahead and eat it. If you have a death wish.

Its not worth it I hate to say it but count the deer a loss and leave it.

Personally, I don't think it's worth taking the chance over.
