Re: Best way to ship wild game meat?
Just so you know, a few years back I was shipping some elk meat to my folks back East. I also used a styrofoam cooler and dry ice, and then I taped it up really good with duct tape. While driving down to the FedEx shipper, thank God I was going slow just pulling into their parking lot, there was a VERY LOUD bang (similar to a gun going off). When the gases expanded from that dry ice, it blew the top off that styrofoam cooler - I about had a heart attack when that thing went off! Apparently you don't want to seal it so good as to make it airtight where the gases can't excape. Just thought I'd save you a good scare, would hate for that to happen to somebody while driving 75mph down the highway. And believe me......it was friggin' LOUD.
