Default field dressing a deer?

after you open up the deer and you get all the guts out what special care do you give to cutting the anus out? want to make sure not to contaminate the meat. what else is bad when field dressing a deer? what you dont want to puncture? never done it and dont want to ruin my 1st deer.

There are tons of video's and books out there I would suggest you check out, that way you could always go back and see it on screen.


My advice would be make sure you use very sharp knife, and cut away from your body.

For removing the anus I use the "butt out" tool. It works well. YOu just insert the tool, twist until its caught good, then pull. Way better than using your knife to cut around it, in my opinion

I've heard good things about the "Butt-Out" tool, but never used one. I use a Gerber T-handle bone saw with a blunt tip that just saws through the pelvic bone, then cut around the anus and pull everything out. Be careful not to bust the bladder, and be cautious with the kidneys, you can rupture one of them, and cause problems with the meat as well.

THERE ARE INNER TENDERLOINS along the INSIDE of the backbone of the deer, GENTLY REMOVE WITH YOUR FINGERS, and rinse and place in a bag. Lightly freeze so you can slice them into medallions, and fry up in butter with some sauteed onions and peppers, salt and pepper to taste, and you'll be eating THE BEST PART OF THAT DEER!!!!! The inner tenders are eaten on the day of the kill on any of my morning kills!!!!!

I used the Butt Out last year and I must have done something wrong cause it just plain didn't work. Plus I don't need one more thing to carry. It will continueto be a small very sharp old shrade for that. I have also seen alot of guys who dont' give it much thought and always get urine and such on the meat. I'll split the pelvis if I'mgonna butcher real soon. Drys out alot of meat if you don't.

PS!!! Pleasecall me when you get a deer down cause I want to watch. Watching someones first time can be very very funny. Those steaming gut piles make their eyes water. Good Luck and have fun hunting.
