How to age your wild game when it gets wet?

Nick of Caldwell, Idaho asked:

What is the best way to age your wild game if it gets wet - Whether you back it out in a rain storm or it gets wet from the ice in your ice chest? 


I have had this happen many times myself on pack-in trips. Dry ice always works best, but when it's not available and you have to use regular ice, your meat is going to get wet.

I always get it up out of the water as quickly as possible and then place it on racks in my refrigerator or walk-in cooler and allow it to dry as you normally would when dry aging your meat.

The water from the ice or from the rain won't affect the quality of your meat; simply age it accordingly as soon as you can.
