    She will most likely be good - maybe not great!
    In my experience you always get a little taint with any gut shot.
    Best advice is wash her thoroughly with water as soon as possible.
    Other than that, I never wash out with water before hanging.

    Be mindful of your knife. Clean it well between tainted and non tainted meat. Or use two different knives!
    Your nose will guide you if you sniff close.
    Quarters and backstraps should be fine for sure.
    The rear quarter that was on the ground the longest can get the sniff test near the joint too , but should be quite fine.

    Washing soon enough can help. I've read of vinegar being used , but never tried it.
