Default Removal of bladder

The only problem I ever have when gutting a deer is the removal of the bladder which lies under the pelvis bone. I have tried many ways to keep the urine from coming out of the bladder,but with limited success due to the location of the bladder.Probably the best success I've had is to saw through the pelvis bone with my Buck Alpha serrated blade andget to the bladder by pushing down on the inner thighs and"splitting" the rear legs apart. Any suggestions in removal of the bladder would be welcome.

Poke a small hole in it, drain into cup. Put in bottle and put in frigerator or on ice. Use on scrapes etc. I just split the tail pelvis with my large bowie knife. Rinse out carcus.

as stated above splitting the pelvic bone is about the easiest way to go. i find it easier to roll the deer onto it's side after the pelvis is split... if you make the split wide enough you should be able to remove everything in one neat pull.... and yes save that pee... even code blue... standing doe in heat.... ect..ect...ect cant match it.

cut around the a-hole. insert knife keeping it along the bone, cut around the pelvis while pulling back on the a-hole,when all is cut it will come out with the guts.
i like using a pocket knife for this.

This is what I do also. Although urine is sterile and won't technically hurt anything... I still don't like to spill it especially if there is cut meat back there. If by chance I do spill some, I will rinse generously and if it gets into a piece of meat that is cut, I will cut a section out around it just so I don't have to chance tasting it...
