    Did you all go deer hunting?
    If you were successful and gutted your deer, did you notice anything peculiar the next day?

    maybe it’s just me but the next time I go number 2, it smells just like the deer guts.

    Is it just me?

    Gutted many deer, never noticed that..however, gutting hogs and bears is a wakeup call for your nose...they stink to high heaven...I've also noticed that even after washing my hands, I always seem to find flecks of blood under my fingernails and on my cuticles...

    The last few years I’ve participated in a master hunter program, catch and release, so I have not noticed phenomenon lately.

    Nothing smells as bad as rabbit guts.

    Gutted, skinned and quartered one Sunday. Monday's "business" didn't smell like deer guts to me.

    Well Doc, it’s just something I made up. It sounds much better than I didn’t get anything.

    If you're smelling their guts something went wrong.

    Now a staaanky rutting buck... that will linger. Your hands, clothes. The bed of your truck. A small price to pay.

    Harvest a deer each year: never noticed it. Venison does have its characteristic smell - most pronounced for me during field dressing at the first opening of the abdominal cavity - but after the shower and change of clothes, we're back to normal, in all aspects.

    Gut shot deer and rank farts. I have experienced that. Must be osmosis.

    Dang. I almost threw my knife at a spike buck tonight. Less then 20' he held still, did t think I saw him, then panicked. (No I wouldn't have tossed knife). I have killed rabbits with screwdriver...

    I do wonder how much meat he lost. It honestly didn't look like a lot. I spent more time removing guts then he did the entire deer....

    Yep, the worst thing I’ve ever remembered smelling was the inside of a bear.
