    There's a really crack up vid on YouTube that is something like "gutting a deer kiwi-style". It's actually doing everything pretty much the way I have always seen it but the host just has something funny about him.

    Here is it.

    Just use a waterblaster
    their is lots of variations on how to do it. I usually arshole and cut esophagus first.Open belly cavitypull arse threw and intestines out,roll paunch out of way and cut round diaphram,reach up past lungs and grab esophagus and pull threw into cavity then the whole lot comes out as one.(little risk of popping anything)
    Be carefull reaching up round the heart/ lungs if you shot it in the engine room, broken ribs will slice your knuckels up!

    Exactly how I do it, minus the water blaster!

    Take your time and you will be fine, once you have done a couple you will know what works and what doesn't.

    Avoid knives with gut hooks.
    Hunting is not a hobby.....its an addiction

    Practice on goats, they are easy to come by and pretty much the same on a smaller scale.

    Get Hold of a framer and watch him do a sheep its basicly the same thats how i lernt

    Cut throat tie food chord in a knot, do the hocks, cut out ass hole (unless carrying) rip all the insides out.

    Handy hint leave ass hole in if carrying stops bllod running down ya crack

    tips on cleaning a deer out

    I've got a knife with a seperate gut hook ... I use the gut hook for skinning

    I can imagine a gut hook on the blunt edge of your knife could be a pain

    Basically what Veitnamcam said is the standard way.
    Remove head-cut windpipe below esophagus-cut around arse (round the inside of the pelvic cannel)-open the belly skin-tip deer on side and let guts fall out (will have to cut a few bits and pieces like fat around kindeys etc)
    then cut diaphram and pull.

    I don't.
    Take back legs, back steak and front legs off without having to gut it. I do usually hunt the tops and have a pack to carry all the meat though.

    Unfortunately it's one of those things where having someone show you one and then watch and guide you as you do the first one makes life very much easier. It's definitely a learn-by-doing type thing. Try going along on a meat-hunt or pay for a guided meat hunt once, easiest way to learn all these details.
