Not to disagree because everyone's different, but I prefer to hang the deer with the hide on normally for 3-5 days at camp as long as temp is good. Then I hang the carcass with the hide off for another 4-5 days at home if temperature allows. You can also age it in a fridge at about 38-42*. I've never had gammy tasting deer whether it was Michigan, Ohio or PA. Poor handling, too hot of outside temperatures probably contribute to poor meat more than anything else.
