The "best" way is to get it to the taxidermist ASAP. If that's not possible, get it in the freezer ASAP.

I shot one last week. I gutted it. then I put it in the fridge over night and took it to the taxidermist the next day. He got the meat out for me.

like the other guys said, either take it to the taxidermist right away or get it in the freezer right away. You dont relly need to gut it or anything either I dont think.
