How about a " pinned " topic of skinning , cleaning , handling of meat ?

I have not been out this year due to my back but when I can get out I want to make sure that I can Skin , Clean & care for my Meat after the kill . I ran through all 9 pages & there are a couple of refrences to " put on ice " & / or " put into a slush " . I also saw some guys that just put the meat sitting on top of the ice ( not in a bag / something to keep the moisture out of the meat ) .
Also last year there was a topic of " how to deal with Fleas / Ticks . Some posted skinning / cleaning immediatly as oppossed to spraying with Raid / or the like , to get rid of pests .
Just like Gloves or no Gloves ? To each their own . I use gloves as I always have cracked , dry skin .
I know that I will be far from my Chest in the Vehicle . Can I skin / clean them after I shoot them & put the meat into a bag until it gets into the Chest ? Or Leave it as it is & clean it/them after I get back to the Veehickle ? I know skinning sooner is easy . Tried it last year with Quail . Poped off like a jacket . Left 1 be until I got home . It was a bit harder to get off .
At that point , if cleaned & bagged , they go into the Chest & onto Ice .
Funny thing about that Video is that at no time does Ice come into play . I know that gutting starts cooling , getting the skin off fast helps too .
Thanks for all the help and advice over the years .
P.S. I already went through the "Kitchen section " and have a few recipes at hand .

I keep a foldable cooler in my truck with blue ice packs. In my backpack I carry 2 1/2" gallon ZipLoc type plastic bags to put the rabbits or small game in until I can walk back to the truck when changing or walking to other locations in my hunting area. I also carry smaller freezer ziplocs (maybe 1 gallon) so that when I get to the truck I can gut the rabbits, put them in the bag and then into the cooler with the blue ice. That way the meat cools down quickly.
You can also carry Blue Ice in a ziploc bag in your backpack. This will make the backpack heavier, but not much.
