But I've found a method for sweetening up the meat after the kill that I'm going to try next time. I didn't like having to leave him there but part of the problem was I couldn't move him past that log. And at the time I thought they were completely inedible. Now I'd cut him up and pack him out
Clean them immediately and get them quartered and on ice. Add a couple cups of vinegar to the water/ice mixture and keep the meat covered for a few days till the meat is bled white.
