I haven't killed a deer since I was a teenager, and at that time I had a lot of adults who helped with the cleaning and we were close to camp. However, this season I plan on getting back into deer hunting, but the places I will be hunting range from as little as 30 minutes drive time to over 2 hours of driving. Of course, that doesn't even include getting the deer out of the woods. My question is, how soon should the deer be gutted? Do you do it while in the woods or drive home, even if it could be a few hours before you get there? Thanks.
