Best way to ship wild game meat?
I want to send some meat up to my family on the east coast and I'm wondering what kind of shipping time I need to pay for? Anyone here have experience sending meat through the mail?
I'm planning to use a styrofoam cooler and put dry ice above and below the meat with a thin layer of crumpled newspaper insulating the meat from the dry ice- to keep the meat from getting freezer-burned. All the meat is vacuum-sealed. I'm going to tape the cooler shut so that it'll be air-tight, to slow down the evaporation of the dry ice. But I'm not sure, exactly, how long it'll stay frozen this way.
I KNOW that 2nd Day Air UPS will work fine, but I'm wondering if 3-Day Air would work- will it stay frozen? Because the 3-day air shipping is 1/2 the price of 2-day air.
Any advice would be appreciated!
