I have found deer to be like beef, it has a better flavor if you let it hang in a cooler for 3-5 days. As for skinning, have you ever tried doing it with a pickup truck (or car), it works great. Here is how I do it. Cut off all 4 legs at the knee joint with a saw. From your field dress cut, split the skin up the neck to the head. from your field dress cut, split the skin down the inside of the front legs. From where you split the skin up to the head, make a cut all the way around the neck at the base of the head. Next pull the hide down the neck 6-8 inches. Roll up a rock about the size of a golf ball in the hair side of the skin you have pulled down the neck. Tie a stout rope around the rock good and tight. Tie the other end to your vehicle. Take a chain, or rope and tie around the head and tie the other end to a tree, up about 2 feet off the ground. Get in your vehicle and slowly pull up. If you are by yourself, pull up a little until the deer is off the ground and lay a piece of plastic under it. When you get done, you will have a skinned deer laying on the plastic and not a hair on it. Once you skin one this way, you will never go back to hanging one up and doing it by hand. I have found that it does a much better job than you can do by hand. It probably sounds more complicated than it is. It's a simple operation once you do it.
