Some say to keep draining the water off and add ice to the ice chest.

Keep the meat from soaking. Bacteria grows faster with the moisture.

no more than four days for me constantly add ice every day and leave the plug off and slightly tilted so excess water drains off.

Everyday. your good. I will also put an old refrigerator rack to keep the meat off the bottom. Less discoloring and blood in the water like that.

Not sure about in a cooler with ice but my mule deer was just processed after hanging 13 days. He is tasty and tender, was pretty rutted up when I harvested him.
Our elk hung for 12 days . We do have a nice cold garage and very low humidity up here.
