Anybody here hang there deer from the hind legs to field dress?  I use a loader tractor and hang them up after bunging the deer.  Zip them open from pelvis to sternum and the guts basically fall out.  Split the breastbone cut the windpipe and you are done.  I also rinse and cool with a hose.  This method works great except if you have a cape you are trying to save.  Then I just do them on the tail gate and hang them from the head and rinse them out.

just type in field dressing a deer.. Lots of them are on there. I know this one wont be of much help but it shows a guy field dress one in a min thirty! Im sure youll be able to find what you need in there.

I just got back in from the morning hunt on Opening Day.  There was one scraggly buck and 4 does spaced out over the morning, but nothing worth shooting showed itself. 

Good thing I had a mess of my Mom's good field dressing in a ziplock bag to munch on!  Yum.  She's started making a lot more bland-- she and Dad have to watch their stomachs.  However, I put a little zip back into mine by sprinkling in some Cajone seasoning. . . (or is that Cajun seasoning?) . .. whatever.

There's a pretty good tutorial here Wisconsin Outdoor News. Go to "Deer Hunting," then to "Deer Processing (a pictorial)." It's pretty good.

takes practice, but easy as riding a bike over time
