I think the way people hang their deer depends on where they live. Almost like the way people count points on antlers. I would venture to say people in the Midwest hand their deer from the neck.

I worked in a slaughter house for years in Pa. The cows are killed and skinned within minutes. We used to kill deer and then let them hang from the neck for a few days to age them. This is not the way you should do it. You should get the hide off the deer as fast as possible. For one thing it is much easier to skin then while they are warm. The best way to skin them is to leg them out while they are on the ground, then hang them by the back legs and complete skinning them. Then if you want to age them for a few days from that point that is ok.
