I will second Vacuum packing. My father and I do a bit of hunting and we vacuum pack everything. I often get out a package pheasant or venison that is 3 or 4 years old and since we started vacuum packing we have not had any freezer burn. We used to pack in water while we didn't have freezer burn with it, it takes up more space. I also keep my storage freezers (uprights) at -10 or so.
The primary damage from freezer burn is dehydration if you can stop the moisture from leaving that is the battle.
The reason it takes us so long to eat the game is we treat it as a treat.

You should never freeze fish or game in water. First that slows the freezing process down , way down. Meat needs to be FAST frozen, like in 4 hours or less. In water I would say you are talking 24 hours. Second, your meat is never going to be colder than 28 degrees Far too warm for fish. Third, the space factor. Fourth, if you want to transport it , dry ice won't help. Best to fast freeze in a flimsy plastic bag, no zip locks, Then when frozen, vacuum seal. I just cooked a mallard fast frozen that way in 2010 And it was perfect and delicious.

We don't freeze in water any longer we vacuum pack then freeze or freeze then vacuum pack and then put back in the freezer.
Vacuum packing soft items will crush them so freezing first is the way to go for those items.
