Can summer sausage made from deer be sent by mail and last to still be eaten?

If the summer sausage is not shelf stable, then ship it overnight in an insulated shipping cooler with cold packs or dry ice. Choose a cooler size that is just big enough to hold the sausage and the cold packs/dry ice. It will keep colder that way since you are chilling less air.
