Where do you gut your prize? Does the gut pile effect other animals coming into the area?

I always take mine back to the house or cabin depending on where Im hunting. Its much cleaner and much easier when the deer is hanging and you have access to water.

I prefer to get it out of my hunting area. I usually load it up and take it elsewhere to gut it.I have shotdeer and hunted the same stand the next day and seen deer.

I usuallydo my gutting right where the deer drops. I like to do it as quickly as possible so the meat cools properly. The left overs feed the local scavengers, fox, buzzards, and crows.

Here's one for you...I don't usually gut my deer....Only if it's pretty hot and need to help it cool....Other than that, I hang it in the barn, bone it out, make a small incision at the short ribs to extract the tenderloin, put it in the bucket on the Deere and haul it to the "graveyard"...
