Now is a great time to start saving a few empty, plastic, liter, soft drink bottles. Filled with water and frozen, they are great for quickly cooling a deer carcass and fit inside the body cavity perfectly.
By the time the season opens, I have six or eight in the freezer, ready for use. If you are forced to keep a deer whole overnight, they work perfectly. Two or three stuffed in the cavity will do the job even on a warm night.

I think one liter bottles are too big to fit in their body cavities. \:D

Great idea. I have been buying 4-5 bags of ice every Saturday and Sunday like an idiot. We kill a ton of does. That will save me $15-$20 bucks a week . Thanks!

Yep, black pepper works great on the flies, also works pretty good for those dang Yellow Jackets that like to swarm a deer carcass while your trying to skin and quarter it in warm weather.

Been doing the bottles for years. I usually put the deer in the shed to avoid the flies, but during skinning and such flies are a problem. The black pepper is a trick I have not heard. Simply coat all exposed meat liberally or conservatively?

Roll of cheesecloth will solve the fly problem.

It doesn't take much pepper to keep the critters off, it just adds a little seasoning to it ,lol.

And yes Winchester, cheesecloth or the premade game bags will and do work great, but it is a biatch trying to skin and quarter a deer all wrapped up, ;\)

I use a product called Liquid Game Bag. Comes in a spray bottle, takes very little and is 100% effective. You can check it out online. Even though those boys went to UW, they came up with a good product.
