Q: What is the optimal temperature for aging deer meat, and how many days should it hang?
A: Ideally, deer should be hung to age for 5-10 days at a temperature just above freezing, but not above 37 degrees Fahrenheit. Coincidentally, that’s the temperature for which refrigerators are typically set.
