dry ice

Do you always take dry ice afield with you? Was wondering how much longer it keeps than regular ice and if it's worth the extra price?

We take some cubed ice, but

We take some cubed ice, but just for the beverages.  I fill gallon milk jugs with water and freeze them and they keep the meat plant cold until we get back home.  We may pour some cubed ice on top of them if it get real warm.  Also keep the cooler in ther shade as much as possible and we cover them with moving plankets.

If I am after an antelope

If I am after an antelope I'll take my 165 qt cooler and fill it with frozen milk jugs.  Once I get to where I am going to hunt that cooler will never get opened unless we need to put some meat inside it.  It is surprising at how long that frozen water will last that way.  The longest that I have tested it is about 6 days with still enough ice not to have to worry.  Now the cooler that has the beverages in it, well that ice goes fast.
