I shot a nice little buck last night who turned slightly as I fired. The resultant quartering shot nicked the front end of the rumen. I cleaned him out and discarded everything including the lights. After carrying him to my car (not too far away) I washed him end to end and dried him off with blue paper towel.
The carcass was pretty clean after all that.
Does anybody have any suggestions for alternative actions should I be unfortunate enough to do it again?
