I've done many animals including elk in just a little college apartment.   It can be done without too much of a fuss.  They were quartered or boned out in the field though.

I know a guy that did a moose on the kitchen floor of his single wide trailer

Dude - Steven Rinella lived in an apartment for years.

You can do it!  Kill the animal, cut it up and get it home.

Quarter it up and put it in an ice chest. When you get home, cut and wrap on your kitchen table. That is what I use to do when I lived in an apartment in Everett.

When I lived in Seattle most the time I would bone it and if not like others have said at least quartered. Once quartered a tarp on the table is all you need then when its dark take the bones out to the dumpster in balck garbage bags trust me lots of nosy parkers. Even now where I live I could process it here but so much easier to just take it Boned to B&E meats in Des Moines and have them do the rest. I take any meat left over from the previous year and have that made into pepperoni sticks or links cause you are gonna want to eat the fresh stuff and it keeps you from having anything get buried and freezer burnt.

I have brought everything from deer to elk to moose quarters inside my house and put on oh kitchen island and cut it there. Quarter or bone it in the field and bring back to the apartment in coolers, keep on ice and the meat will be fine until you get it processed. Bones go in the dumpster if you brought them home.

I used to work for a guy that completely rebuilt his Harley in his tiny apartment living room without getting a spec of grease on the carpet, so a hind quarter would be child's play.  He had to pull out the couch and store it in his buddy's house to make room.

In Kent I carried a dead deer with head removed, wrapped up tight over my shoulder into my apartment. 
A couple hours later I came back out with multiple hefty bags (bones and stuff) with blood on my hands to throw in the dumpster. The looks on my neighbors faces were classic.  :yike:

Craig, a Ukrainian guy brought it up months later after we got to know each other. He said all the Ukrainian ladies would whisper when I walked by.
I laughed and pointed to antlers on the wall. He started laughing hysterically. Apparently some thought It was a body that I cut up and disposed of in the dumpster.
I asked why no one said anything? He said they are Ukrainian, you don't ask questions.

I cut up and deboned a sheep last week on my tailgate and fold up table and did my buddies mule deer this week, had some serious looks from neighbors and don't really care what they think

Alchase, that is classic.   :chuckle:

Speaking as one who has cut up deer in a tiny Seattle apartment (my cousin's), I would just say that a quartered out deer (with long cannon bones left in the field) wrapped up in a tarp or in a large cooler should be easy to get up to the apartment without any mess in the halls or stairs/elevator.  If anybody asks, it's a good opportunity to talk about healthy wild meat...
