We saw this on YouTube was intrigued enough by it to share with our fellow Midsouth shooters, even if it is out of season. Really, there’s no closed season on learning better ways to skin a cat, or in this case, a deer. The video is by Randy Newberg.

This video shows you how to break down an animal, in this case a deer, and convert it to manageable pieces you can haul out on your back. The “gutless method” is the most efficient manner to get all useable meat off the carcass.

It’s easy to see why a gutless method of field-dressing a deer or elk is becoming more popular, in part because keeps the cape and head in good shape for trophy mounting.

Do you use this technique?

  2. HAULING A DEER OUT, AND THE LEAD PICTURE IS NO DEER, AT LEAST NOT A WHITETAIL OR MULE DEER. MAYBE A STAG
    THE STORY AND TIPS ARE WORTHWHILE, JUST GET THE ADVERTISING PIC RIGHT, THOUGH THE TIPS WOULD BE HELPFUL ON A 800 LB BULL

  3. I have used this method on elk for years. Learned a long time ago you don,t drag an Elk anywhere.
