Where are you going to put it out in the open, in a shed, etc. How big a cooler do you need? I would think a used commercial unit would work.

It will be under an open walled metal building with the back against the enclosed metal building..would like to at least hold a couple deer at a time..any experience with this?

Your best bet is to check with a restaurant supply company like Ducote's in Baton Rouge. A new one would cost you a few thousand easy to be large enough for a few deer. Price is going to depend on the size.

You could also check eBay for used ones. You may even be able to find a local one in the papers or on craiglist.

Jason, don't most of those require a concrete slab for a base?

A lot of them will have their own floor already built into them but a concrete slab/floor is better in my opinion especially if you can build a drain into it. Makes it easy to clean.

They make them both ways. With a floor and without a floor but most of the smaller ones will already have a floor built into them.

Look for A used truck with the cooler.

That thing is pretty crazy. As long as you don't have to use it much and/or if it holds up, that would definitely be a cheap option for a deer cooler.

This is what I used for a crawfish cooler when I had a seafood market/deli in Baton Rouge. Works great, easy to wash out, and you could even put it outside.

I took the body(cooler part) off of the truck and put mine on the ground.

re: Walk in coolers


truckpaper.com is the main online source for trucks.

You could look at some of the bigger dealers, like in tuscaloosa etc, that probably have a reefer that they took off of a truck.

good luck.
