With game, I hang it whole for about a week, but peoples taste varies, to bring the distinctive game flavour out, before butchering it.Do you clean it first or just hang it up? Just curious why you would not clean and refrigerate asap?
If I recall, the chef, Clarissa Dickson-Wright used to hang them by their tail feathers, then when the bird fell down after the tail feathers pulled out, she said it was then ready.
There is plenty of guidance on the web, so timing is really personal preference and temperature dependant.
