    Field dressing vid. Rough, but I was having fun.

    This is a bit rough, but it might assist someone who has never done it before.

    For anyone interested, the knife is a Bark River “Wolf River” model.

    Thats how I always do it Jason. Back steaks first, then use the front legs as handles to roll them onto their back. Back legs off, and boned (making sure I get the rumps at the same time - they come off with the leg all in one piece), then the front legs off and boned. Nah, I seldom take the inside steaks. The way I do the deer avoids opening them up, and I don’t want to do that for just a couple of slimy and bloody bits of meat. If I do, its the last thing so that there is no risk of spilling gut contents onto anything ‘cos by then the animal is pretty damned naked.

    good one. I can see why you done it like that. after my last deer the only question would be... do you check the organs for signs of disease?
    mine had damaged its leg but it looked fairly well healed. I did look at the organs but I plan on taking a bit more notice from now on with a better idea of what to look for, mine was tough and had a taint to the meat.

    Im not sure that there is a risk to humans through any disease. Especially if the meats well cooked.
    We worry too much. I have kicked the odd one over the bank because it was too skinny or I didn't like the look of the meat though. Besides, I don't like getting my hands dirty by fishing around inside the dark and spooky internal spaces of a deer

    After years of venison trade meat hunting, I really enjoy not having to gut them.

    Cheers

    Interesting - I have to do this for the first time (hopefully!) in the not too distant future. This is different to any other video I have seen. What would we do without youtube?!

    I do the same but do guts first which is a pain in the arse. Might not bother in the future now.

    Fair enough not to gut the deer, I however love the inside fillets, best cut by far and never ever ever given away, except when my dog eats a mates and then I feel obliged to replace em.

    Good video, cheers for posting

    I used to gut every deer, but the past couple of years have been good to me and I haven't bothered with the whole animal unless its close to the truck. Once the freezer is full, topping up with back steaks and the 4 wheels (boned out) is plenty enough.
