  • I'm trying to figure out why the hunting editor Andrew McKean advised using quality canvas bags for field dressing animals

    I'm trying to figure out why the hunting editor Andrew McKean advised using quality canvas bags for field dressing animals - To my knowledge this is not a good product to use - #1 - does not let the meat cool properly - the canvas will not allow the needed air to ciculate #2 when large quanities of meat are thrown together - heat builds up and spoilage is gonna happen and fast - yes Game bags should be used anytime you've removed a hide from and animal - use a quality game bag is the correct answer but stay away from canvas bags - #3 Just how many of these large bulky canvas bags is a hunter suppose to pack along? The correct gamebag is a knitted fabric - cotton /poly or cotton that will allow the meat to cool properly. time is a very important factor here and so is weather - a guy from Az can be hunting in the mid 60-70 's in the mountains and 80-90's in the southern deserts . leaving meat stuffed in a canvas bag will be spoiled before he has time to pack it out !! sorry i disagree with this article !!! i agree with meat first and then antlers but I'm sure nothing in the regulations states you must pack out all the meat first before you take the antlers - elkaholic
