    Default Winter moose meat care

    I was able to finally get my moose this year during the winter hunt on the flats. I processed the moose exactly as I have with my last four, except that it was -20 when I shot it. My buddy and I had the moose quartered, on the snowmachines, and heading back to the truck within about four hours. I hung the meat in my garage and set the temp to about 40 degrees.

    I have eaten several steaks now and found all the meat is extremely tough to chew. It tastes good, but just tough. Anybody have any suggestions for future winter hunts or personal experiences? I have read that if you let the meat cool too fast or let it freeze that it stops the protein breakdown. The meat did not freeze and I hung it for about five days. Thanks, John

    That is why God gave man, the "Crockpot".
