Went by processor about noon yesterday to get some leg bones for the dogs and saw a truck backing up with horns sticking up in the bed. Got close to check em out and saw the buck still had his "BOYS" attached then saw it was not gutted. As they drug it off the tailgate the neck did not bend at all so looks like ole rigi has stiffened it up already. Made me sick to think someone may eat that animal. Has our culture come to this that we don't wanna get our hands bloody and respect the animal or are we not teaching folks the correct way to handle them.

What processor takes ungutted animals? None of the ones I know allow it and most are frequented by city slickers.

I have taken aplenty of deer to the processor on evening hunts where recovery was late. Threw it in the truck and toolkit straight to the processor they will have it gutted and aging way faster than If I had in the field with flashlights and all. He doesn't charge extra to gut it. I am also in a unique situation being close ( 10 mins) to a processor but no where near a real town. I know the guys that clean the deer and they do a great job. I know not every processor is good or gives you your meat.

Squeamish girly men that listen to Bro Country, drive jacked up city trucks, wear Affliction shirts, have fancy stitching on their britches and can't gut a deer. However, I'm certain they can coordinate their wardrobe quite well. They probably go to the day spa, do yoga and get mani/pedi's regularly too.

The slaughter house near me at one point was notorious for packaging meat that wasn't what you had taken in.. If they still are like that now?, idk I do my own .

I actually enjoy gutting a deer. It's part of the fulfillment of the hunt.

Missing out, imo.

Yep,
I like to do my own post-mortem exam and see the terminal effects of my chosen ammo, bullet placement, etc.

I have seen several processors that will gut from $30-$60.

!st thing I do is the "gut job" Photos can wait, the meat has to start cooling quick, 10 minutes and your done, even in the dark.

I have been in the processor when deer where brought in whole and it was fairly obvious the person either didn't know how to do (more than likely) or didn't have the confidence to do it? They need to learn, plain and simple.

I have showed my neighbor twice, so we'll see what he does if he gets one down.

Had a paralyzed from the waist down neighbor in the 90's, that couldn't gut one, so he would call me the night before and give me a heads up that he was hunting (off his porch), I would go take care of his deer for him. In that case, I understand.

Folks should learn just for their own health and quality of meat.

Hmm I actually know a guy like that!! I would gut his deer for him because he would sit there and look at it like a cow starring at a new gate so I would gut it for him till he started expecting it.

Ive gutted plenty of deer. I have hauled more animals on my back than in my truck in conditions that are less than Ideal. I do most of it myself and enjoy the process. Just saying sometimes it is a lot easier, faster, less time, equipment etc to just take it to a guy you trust. If you actually know the people where you hunt.

From my experience the guys pointing fingers on the above are the guilty party. Just from my experience, please don't rattle off what type of truck you drive and how manly your are I am sure you can clean a deer, Im just saying who smelt it dealt it.

In any case I think for a lot of guys/gals city and country alike it is better to just take it somewhere to have it done than royal screw it up or waste a lot of meat. Even if its not country enough for you...

Whatever floats your boat. Personally, I like to get the guts and organs out of 'em as soon as they hit the ground. Also drains the blood and other fluids out that can taint the meat or leach back into the meat through the various organs. And it begins cooling the animal immediately. But that's just how I roll.

Another reason I no longer use processors and especially if they don't give you the exact same deer back that you brought in. If they just give you an equal amount of meat, forget it. I don't want it. I've seen how too many of these people are handling their kills.

Agree, don't even know why he got offended? confused2

IMO, there is no good reason to at least not gut your deer, better for meat quality and a respect for the animal to retrieve the best quality meat he provides you. Takes little effort and it is hard to mess that part up. Processing the animal IMO, is a separate issue with much more leeway.

Fairly well know that an animal needs gutted and cooled as soon as possible, to assure a good,safe quality meat. Part of the reason I quit bow hunting and the main reason I am skeptical of processors.

Depending on the outside temps, the timeline is flexible, not ASAP.

I don't think many would argue that the sooner the better though.

I have a budy and the first time I went hunting with him at his place they shot a doe in the morning at 7am. Got back to camp at 8:30 strung the deer up and went inside to cook/eat breakfast before they came back out at about 9:30 to finally start gutting. Never in a million years would I do that. Maybe some would but it just don't jive with me.

True, to a point up Even in cold though, you have internal heat if he is still zipped up. Shot placement will effect it too, near, or in the gut and I would be in emergency mode. I wont risk it personally, so gutting soon is my priority.
