Default Need advice from waterfowl hunters

I have a dilemma. Yesterday, I was able to take two geese. However, I was only able to process one last night due to time constraints. It was freezing temperatures last night, so I put the other goose outside so I can process it in the morning.
However, with the goose body heat, and the temperature outside which was freezing last night, I donít know if the meat is still good anymore.

What do you guys think? Is it safe to eat?

I suspect it will be fine. In some countries hunters hang their ducks and geese not in a heated area for days before plucking and gutting them. Not my cup of tea but they claim it makes them more tender. I have a friend who ages his doves in the vegetable drawer of his beer refrigerator for a week before he cleans them. He claims it improves the flavor, he has done it for years and he is still healthy.
