How long can wild meat be refrigerated before it needs to be eaten/frozen?

Let's say I go hunting for rabbits/squirrels/hares/deer and get one. One doesn't want to cook/process them right away because the meat will become more tender after it has refrigerated for a while.

The redneck answer... until it begins to smell. The FDA Answer: 3 - 5 days.

In general, game meats can be treated much the same as other lean meats, assuming you cool them as quickly as possible after processing. Make sure to trim any fat from what you are planning to age as it will tend to become rancid more quickly than anything else. Also, if you wash your meat to remove hair or other debris, it should be eaten immediately as the moisture encourages decomposition.

When meat smells, it's already recommended to not eat it anymore. Zerotime‭ 3 months ago

Yup, that's the joke.... It should be treated like any other meat, not something special. Sigma‭ 3 months ago
