I wasn’t sure if this is the place to post this, but it’s not “archery” per se, nor is it Bowhunting…….so this place it goes…….
The question I started thinking about is :
do you gut your animal in the field or drag it out and gut somewhere else?
I was watching a hunting show and noticed the yahoo struggling to drag the deer out of the woods……..and the first thing that came to mind was “why didn’t that idjit just gut the deer and loose about 1/3 of the weight?”
So I thought I’d ask the all knowing forum……….
BTW, I’ve never brought a deer out of the woods with it’s innards intact…….I always leave the gutpile in the woods
Also why would you bring the deer home, guts and all? I can see not wanting to leave the gut pile right under your treestand……….but bringing it home? (yes I’ve seen some pics where they have the deer in their truck and no slice in the animal’s belly)
