    i usually gut em right where they fall but the deer i killed out of my friends stand i took it on the fourwheeler to the fenceline and gutted. the only reason i did it is because he thought he needed to move his stand just because i shot one out of it. so i just gutted it elsewhere so he wouldnt think he had to move his stand.

    Right where they lay. We have some good size hills and ravines and the bigger they are the father down the hill they go. And always in a spot you can’t drive the quad to.

    I do it at the skinning shed, but our deer are not 200+ pounders either.

    Dragging an elk in the whole out of the woods is not an option. We gut them where they fall. If the elk drops in a steep ravine or side hill we will sometimes bone out the elk and take the meat leaving the bones behind. The crows and coyotes make quick work of the entrails.

    Situational terrain. When hunting whitetail where I do down south I can usually get a truck within dragging distance. So I take it back to camp and get it in the cooler ASAP. In Colorado hunting elk, it was where the animal lay.

    :D gut’em where i find’em! very seldom do they drop right under my stand! doesn’t alarm deer. it’s not like they take anatomy classes!! they don’t know what it is! i have shot deer,complete pass thru an arrow sticking in the ground, and a few minutes later had deer come by and actually smell the arrow. never phased the deer at all! besides,shouldn’t leave guts in a dead deer for very long!!

    Glad I’m not the only one out there that will gut where they lay……..it doesn’t matter what I’m huntin (big game wise). I started wondering because of all the shows I see where they load up a whole animal (ungutted) into their pickup, on their atv, or BB Buggy, and take the animal back. Also started me wondering why the heck they do that……..because there’s a lot of stuff in the gut that I just wouldn’t want around. I do take the liver and heart though ;)

    Even if I had a skinnin shed (which we do for our moose) we still gut the thing in the field……that’s about 100-300lbs of animal we don’t have to deal with at camp. [=}=]

    I typically don’t field dress my elk and just debone the meat right from the carcass. Then I’ll cape it out for a shoulder mount and sever the spine at the base of the skull.

    For my deer if it’s near the truck and it’s a semi clean route (not mud) I’ll gut it. If it’s super muddy or something like that I’ll gut it at the truck. I’lll also debone them out and pack out the meat if its a hike.
