Default Any hunters? Spring Elk

Last fall me and my buddy Martin did very well with 1 moose and 3 white tail deer.
I spent a lot of time after elk but could never get a shot off and soon the season passed.
This last weekend the game wardens opened the season till the end of March along the foothills of the rocky mountains

We were up at 4 this morning and headed north for about 2 hours, -14*c and about 6" of fresh snow. Calling and getting permission the night before to access a special area that we know of was a wise move as the cattle rancher knew where to send us.
There were at least 30 in the field as we pulled up in my buddys Dodge cummins diesel. Carefull not to spook them we walked along the fence line untill we were with in a few hundred yards. I shot the moose and 2 deer last fall so I let Martin have at it, a nice cow elk with one shot 7mm mag.
The snow was chest deep as we waded out to tag our game, I was sweating pretty good by the time we got to her. Man that was a sweet sound as I heard the rancher plowing out to us with his tractor "here I'll lift it up and make it easier to skin out". He also set it in the back of our truck when we were done, I tried to give him a few dollars for his trouble but would'nt take it.
So now its 2pm and I'm back home, elk is hung up for a few days before butchering, already had a shower and a bite to eat, my buddy Martin had to take his dog for a hair cut at 2:15.....easy day

Isn't it too cold to let it hang out up there? Or is that how you freeze meat up there?

All kidding aside, I'm not a hunter an don't understand why you'd want meat left out that long... but -14... dang thats cold
