I wish I had all the second arrows I used to end the situation quickly. $20.00/arrow but I've never questioned my decision to put the animal out for the count thats why I purchase them by the dozen . I've heard of the rotting esophagus thing but never encountered it in 40 years of hunting. If the weather is too warm to allow a week of hanging then we quarter them up and put on ice in garbage bags in coolers at camp. We put a hemlock branch into the chest cavity to spread it out for faster cooling. If its questionable temperature I'll split the rib cage to the lower neck and open things up a bit.
