For those of you who dress your own deer after the kill, do you do so head up or tail up? I have done it both ways depending on several things. If, for whatever reason, the deer was gutted in the field and then brought in, I dress it the rest of the way tail up. However, if its a large deer, fully intact, I dress it out head up for several reasons. For one, there is less cutting. You don't have to slice down the legs, just around the neck and then pull the hide down over the shoulders and down to the joints. Second, the insides fall out more quickly and cleanly because they don't get hung up in the chest cavity. Same thing goes for the remainder of the blood. It doesn't pool in the chest cavity and then get all over everything when you take the deer down to go in the cooler. How do you do it? Any tips either way? Anyone lucky (or squemish) and have someone who does the whole thing? I'm headed out in a couple hours and was just sitting here wondering. Hopefully I will have the chance to dress a bigun' later this morning!
