How long does everyone's meat typically last? We try to have it gone within 1-1.5 years but sometimes it lasts a bit longer depending on the size of deer I shoot. I hear if frozen properly it can last mutliple years except it will start to lose some of its quality after a year and only really goes bad if it gets freezer burn. I know vacuum sealing is better but I just use freezer paper and just pulled out some round steaks from last years kill and it looked/tasted perfectly fine - no freezer burn. So what do you do??
