A friend and I went on a little hunt in the foothills a couple of weeks ago. We both had mullie doe tags for that area and we both filled them. On the way back we were talking about hanging our deer in our respective garages to be skinned and processed the next day. I generally tie a rope around their neck and hang them w/ head in the rafters. He hangs them by the hocks on their hind legs. He swears it is easier to skin a deer if it's hung that way. I find it pretty easy to skin them the way I do it, but he said something else that made me think a little. He said that one reason that he doesn't hang them head-up is that he is concerned that if their hanging over night you'll get fluid leaking down from the brain and spinal cord and into the rest of the meat. I'd never heard that before, so I asked what exactly might leak into the meat and why would it matter. He really didn't have an answer, but said it was just a wierd paranoia he's always had. But it got me to thinking about CWD and other diseases that might reside in the central nervous system. Any of you guys ever hear something like that? Think there's any merit to that concern?
