Wow! Everyone here guts in the field? I asked the same question once on a board composed of mostly Southeastern hunters and the answer was always in camp. I always gut in camp and so does everyone I've ever hunted with....


I wonder if it's a regional thing.

Shoot, gut, tag, load, hang and skin ASAP.

Opps I forgot one step take a picture if possible or wanted before I gut..

I always field dress everything I take once I recover it. I gut fish and ice em. I gut deer and hang em. I just gut!

Don't know if it's regional or not...everyone I hunt with field dress on the spot vs in camp or at home.

I always gut my deer in the field. It makes them easier to drag and makes me feel a little better about the meat quality. Take a few rubber gloves with you and the mess will be minamul.

you can buy surgical throw away gloves that stretch up to your shoulder by the box, very cheap to.

Not me, I'm too close to home or camp to leave a gut pile in the woods. I want the area to calm down as soon as possible and I don't want to feed them dang yotes anything for free.

If I ever get a frikin deer I would Gut it on the spot because that what most people I know do, then go back to camp and hang it.
