Buzzards got to eat too!!! If you gut them in the field, a day or 2 later there will be nothing left!!!

If you gut your deer back at camp haul the remains off to a spot away from camp. Nobody wants to smell decomposing remains. Other than that coyotes, hogs, buzzards, etc will take care things in short order.

I like to dump all my remains in the middle of my back field where I can see them. Then after two or three days, I can sometimes kill a coyote eating them. Several times I've gotten two coyotes, but a few times I haven't been able to get a single one because they haul it all off during the night. For whatever reason, an hour or so after daylight is when I see them the most often.

Maybe it's just me but I would also drag the remains away from any areas frequented by game animals (feeder, stand, food plots, etc.). I don't really know if a gut pile disturbs deer and other game animals but I am not one to take a chance.

I usually dump them in a spot I can see from my stand. Never seems to bother the deer.

On the fence next to your neighbor who has insisted on placing his stand 30 yards off your fence line.

rofl There were two groups of hunters fighting over the fence line hunting out where I hunt. (My ranch wasn't involved). Anyway, things escalated and one group started dumping all their carcasses on the fence line by the neighbors feeder; deer, turkey, ducks, etc. Other group called the GW and he gave them one day to move the pile or he was writing them a ticket.

We just have a pile we throw it all on a few hundred yards from camp put guts hide etc in tractor bucket and go dump.

I grew up in the city... I can tell you the trash man doesn't enjoy hauling off bloody feed sacks full of deer parts blush

Depends. A lot of times I clean them where they die, but if it is at a feeder or corn pile, I will drag them off just a little ways. Most the doe, I go ahead and carry them to the pit where we dump bones and disposables. We have a designated place outside of camp for all carcasses.

Most deer camps have an out-of-the-way spot often called the "Bone Pile" or something like it were coyotes and other scavengers clean up the remains.

Take em out where you can watch over them and wait on the coyotes. Good coyote bait for a day or 2.
