    I really dislike eating beef that has been frozen, even if it's been frozen only a short period of time. Just tastes off to me. Hamburger isn't too bad as it usually goes in something that is heavily spiced and that disguises the taste somewhat. Don't mind frozen pork though.

    It's yeti magic.

    Normally I try not to let the fish I catch freeze but when ice fishing and its cold its not easy. I have cut up deer that were froze with no ill effects and I freeze the meat before I grind it for burger so I can do all of it at once. As long as its thawed in the fridge/cool area there should be no ill effects.

    Had the same thing happen to me 30-some years ago. Shot one, hung it in the barn, and it froze overnight and stayed frozen for a week. I had to fight my parents to keep them from throwing it away; my father wanted to give it to a guy to feed his beagles:doh. I butchered it as soon as it thawed enough to cut it with the meat saw and butcher knives. It was delicious.
