    You could do it if you were lost, so that means that you can only if you really have no other option.

    If you do that make sure there is extra toilet paper! And find a caution sign for the door.

    Girrardia? Diarrhea? However you spell those two. I wouldn't do it unless I was in survival mode.

    I wouldnt do it, just because it would be very unclean, no matter how fast or cold.

    Yeah, not a good idea, do your best to keep the meat clean while your breaking the animal down, then keep it in a cool dry place. Not only do you not know whats in the water, but wet meat can atracked flies and other bugs.

    I only wash it with creek water after letting the creek water dry. As we used to joke, it only takes one cow to make a creek into a crick.

    The water promotes bacterial growth and it may be contaminated with waste from upstream. Keep your game dry. Use the water to wash your hands (would you then put your wet fingers in your mouth?)
    No matter what else you may want to do, the most important thing is to cool the meat as fast as you can.

    As has been said.....you are supposed to keep the meat as dry as possible. If you have to use a little water its OK but you should wipe the water away when your done cleaning it.

    Use water from your water bottle or hydration bladder(sparingly). I would skin out the Buck, Bull or Ram first, then quarter and break it down on the hide it lies on. Then wrap the quarters, backstraps in cheese cloth or game bags and hang in the meat in tree limbs out of the sun to cool.

    Water and meat is a bad thing. Keep it as clean and dry as possible until you get it to the processor or start processing it yourself.
