If you are like me, I like to get my meat processed on out of state hunts then carry it home with dry ice. Finding dry ice can sometimes be a problem though.
We are on a fishing trip and needed dry ice to keep the Snake River catfish fillets frozen while moving to Lake Powell for stripers. I was looking for a place that sold dry ice and found this website. It has a search feature and shows where "Penguin Brand" dry ice is sold and looks pretty helpful:
If you broaden the search radius, you can scan down the highway/interstate you will be traveling to see who carries their product.
If you have any resources of how to find dry ice when on the road, please post them up here.

Good topic!! Having never used dry ice before, I am looking forward to reading the responses.

Many grocery stores will get it in occasionally but I have the same issue finding it most of the time. Thanks for posting UH.
You can order Omaha Steaks. They always come packed on dry ice...lol.
I used to hunt a PLM in Covelo in August. One year it was 115 degrees on the opener. We used dry ice and it worked perfectly. On day three of our trip I suprised everyone in camp with popsicles. Everything stayed frozen solid for a week. Just be careful, as it gets so cold that it will crack a plastic ice chest. I wrapped it in a towel so it didn't touch the sides.
Most decent sized towns usually have 1 place that has it. I usually just stop at a grocery store and ask where I can find it.
"Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
You might pay a little more but most medical supply places have dry ice for sale.
Perfect. Where I am headed in CO there is two places in town that have dry ice, but by the end of season they usually run out. Now maybe I can have a back-up plan.
I've usually found it at walmart and pick it up while on the trip out. All the game processors I've used out there have dry ice as well. Dry ice is definitely worth the money compared to h20 ice.
