I never let venison age. I don't see the point, it does not have the fat content and marbling of corn fed beef. I have left them for a day, or two, just due to the fact that I didn't have the time to do it right then.
Antelope I never let age, get em quartered, boned, cut and in the freeze as quickly as possible.
I had a client 8 years ago that was a game processor and needed some extra help during the season. I always wanted to learn more, so signed up to help for 4 nights a week for about a month. We had an elk that was left in a horse trailer for 4 days. That was nasty! We were skinning it and when the front shoulders were opened up it was the foulest thing I have ever smelled.

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?
