I'm also one of these guys who cleans my deer head-up.  One of the benefits of that is that the pooper is always pointing down instead of back into the carcass.   Everything seems to just fall out the way it should into the gut bucket.   



Do you mean that you hoist your deer by the head b/f gutting them?

 
I thought that too. It seems to be a southern custom. There's some guys that come up from South Carolina and Georgia who hunt my buddy's other farms that do that. Or I should say they DID that before they had to drag some 240+ pound Illinois deer back to camp. That, and the fact that my farmer friend told them that if they did that, then they'd also have to haul the guts right back out to where they got the deer and then leave them there!

I would have no use for this, once the pelvis is split everything comes out easy.

Agreed, seems like more trouble than it's worth.

I've seen it in catalogs but I'm curous.  Does the "Butt Out Tool" really work?

 
[font=tahoma]I got the "Butt Out Tool" as a gag gift in my stocking from my mother-in-law a few Christmas' ago.  I decided to try it and it works AWESOME!!!  I will always carry one in my pack.[/font]

Yes,  I just wrap a chain around the neck, right under the skull and hoist away.  I do that on all deer I'm not expecting to send to the taxidermist. Yes, it probably is a Southern thing. The guy who got me started doing it was from Alabama. If you do it right, just after you cut the esophagus and trachea, the whole set of innards starts falling out. You use the weight of the innards to do most of the work, and the last thing left is the anus attached to the hide pointing out.  It's fast.

In the evening, there's a bonus to getting things done as quickly as possible.  If I can have the carcass to the processor by 7PM, I don't have to wait until the next morning.  Sundown right now is around 5:30, and it's about a 20 minute drive.  I usually call for a pickup in the truck, flop it on the back, and hoist it out on the meatpole as soon as I can.   From bang-flop to processor in under an hour is doable for me-- tricky, but doable.

As to what happens to the guts, we cart the gut bucket  out to a spot in the middle of the pasture behind the house.  Sometimes in 20 minutes they're gone-- nothing but a wet spot on the grass.

Okay, thanks for the explanation. I still am a little uncertain why it would be better than filed dressing, in which I always try to keep the head uphill, but I've never tried it either.
