My 12 year old son was surprising me by cleaning/reorganizing the basement. Next thing you know, my freezer is only cool! After investigation, I noticed the temp dial was moved to lowest setting. I have squirrels and deer heads in there that I look forward to practicing with. But now a smell, that doesn't seem right.

Do you think I will have to get rid of everything in there? If you saw what was in there, you would cry for me. Big bucks, rare squirrels, beautiful hides!

I never put anything in my freezer that's not in a plastic bag first and then in a brown paper bag.  IF I get a situation like this, I'd just turn the thermostat back up and use them later.  To eliminate the smell, buy two boxes of baking soda and pour them into open trays that you can set inside your freezer for a few weeks.  That will get rid of the smell.

So, George. The animals should be ok? Everything is in bags.

Since they're practice animals, I wouldn't throw ANYTHING away until I let it completely thaw and started to use it.

That particular deer was killed on my small plot of land here in Delaware in 2004.  I have a picture of the one I took last year on the same property but I'm "saving" it to use as and avatar later on. As you see, I'm out of the required orange (400 square inches) we have to wear in Delaware and this 212 field dressed 7 pointer is in the back of a pickup truck.   The one where I'm in white was in Saskatchewan.
