For some reason I can't quote but Saddlebag, you have way to many assumptions. Most meat is handled better by the hunters than it is by the meat cutters. I have my critters gutted immediately! Not in 20 minutes or an hour. I gut them as soon as they are in the dirt. Almost every hunter I know is like that. I don't know anyone who would wait 4 hours before gutting, intentionally. Also, 4 hours isn't going to hurt a dog. Sheesh. My dogs eat stuff that's been dead for weeks or months, every chance they get. And since they are hunting dogs who get to roam in wilderness areas, that's alot. Just worm them regularly. Which should be done anyway.
As far as your dogs digestive system, it's virtually identical to wolves. Dogs and wolves are more alike genetically than coyotes are to either of them. I feed raw game to my dogs all of the time. Meat scraps from when I butcher, ect.......
