    How much was it? I looked at shipping elk from Colorado to Florida and it was nearly $2,000 plane/train/automobile /fed ex/ups/greyhound. They were all basically the same...

    I have had very good luck with Colman extreme coolers (6 day) I believe the 120 quart was $58. I have nothing but great things to say about them and they are hundreds less than the top brand name coolers. We have the processor flash freeze, then put 10 lbs dry ice on top and tape the crack. Meat is solid after a 2 day drive. Good luck, tons of good ideas and shared experiences both good and bad.

    With the new cwd laws a lot of states require you to debone your meat before transporting it out of state into other states . As far as cooling the meat you use dry ice (don’t let it touch ) or it will freezer burn or ice it down good before traveling . You also can use the small 5.0 freezer to freeze the meat before traveling . They are lots of ways to accomplish this but the main thing is to keep on top of it , once you get the meat chilled it s down hill

    read on another post that you check your coolers in at airport as checked luggage and take a soft sided cooler as carry on also filled with meat. You have to be cautious of the checked weight. They you ship your gear back. The gear you can ship cheaper because the rush delivery is not needed.
