How about a cloth material instead of plastic.

Like pillow cases?

I've used pillow cases while traveling for meat transport. They worked well.

You can buy game bags, they come in sets of four with different sizes for different animals. I used them to bring my elk home after it was skinned and quartered till I got it to the butcher shop. Then it was aged in a walk in without the game bags as it should be. When aging meat it should have air circulating around it so the liquid can drain out away from the meat,, not in a plastic or cloth bag.
