Bleeding out deer?

I was just wondering how long do you bleed out a deer in a ice chest? Last year I kept ice on it (drained water once a day) for 4 days. Is that long enough or should I not soak it at all?

3 or 4 days is fine,I've heard of people keeping a deer on ice for a week or more. 4 days is plenty,I always drain it 2 or 3 time a day and keep adding ice

I have to agree. I judge it like this once your drain water is pretty clear it good enough. I usually do 3.

I do 3-5 depending on when I have time to work with it. Be very careful to make sure the blood drains, I even wash more water over the top and let it help wash it out a little. I had a deer I didn't do that to and it wasn't draining all the way and spoiled the whole deer, even with plenty of ice on it. I felt bad about it.

Soak the meat? What are y'all talkin about? I've never soaked my venison in water (or anything) and it's always delicious. Kill, dress, skin, rinse, hang in cooler for 3-5 days, process & freeze.

I agree with Scott. I think it is unnecessary. Think about this, if red meat needed to be soaked in water to get the blood out wouldn't the professional butchers apply this technique to all red meat? When I have accidently gotten water on venison in the past it turns it gray, not appealing to me.

I don't have a walk in cooler. However I have an ice chest. I break the deer down and put it in plastic bags.I put a layer of ice in the bottom of the ice chest, layer in the meat and then put a layer of ice on top of the meat. Open the drain on the ice chest and head home. Once home I take the meat and unbag it and put it in the refigerator at near freezing temp. I process the meat a little at a time and I make sure that it is all done within seven days of the kill.

I've never put water on my venison except to rinse. To keep cool, butcher down to sizes you can bag and then ice but not directly on the meat.
