a deer that was shot in the evening, sat out overnight and was recovered the next morning during early season warm temps? Or do you assume the meat is bad at that point?

I never have, but I would have to error on the side of no. I would like to hear some other experiences.

that's exactly why I was asking... I'd say no, but want to hear from people who may have tried

It depends on the hit. If it dies immediately, it likely is bad by the next morning. If it is gut shot where it might not die for several hours, it may be OK. All you can do is field dress it and see.

The one I tried to eat after sitting overnight had a little bit of a twang, LOL. My dogs didn't seem to mind it though, so it didn't go to waste. My advice is look at your arrow and your first 100 yards of blood trail. You should be able to make a guess on how good the shot is.

I shot one as a kid on a Monday evening. 3rd day of season. Found it Tuesday evening. We ate it. But I don't remember if it tasted funny lol. Obviously it didn't kill me or make me sick.

I shot one on opening day 2 years ago around 9 am. Temps were in the mid 80's. I found it at 1:30 and it was a little more gamey than other deer I've shot. We just poured milk on that particular deers meat before cooking it and the taste went away.

Never have but it depends on the temps and where the deer was hit. As long as it wasnt gut shot and the temps stayed below 40 I think it'd be fine.
