    Field dressing a whitetail

    Just watched this one on Youtube. Interesting idea with the bonesaw, I thought. Not so sure about a couple of other things though.....

    Any comments from the more experienced members?

    yes thats all there is to it really, in simplistic form,
    there are better vids about, watch a few.
    you can learn to clean the pelvis without splitting it

    but recommend

    1 only split the entire body if you are not going to drag it anywhere.

    2 expose, free ,and tie the oesophagus to avoid regurgitated contents
    ​spilling out

    3 drain the blood out first, the neck end
    you probably wont have 2 gallons of water in your roe sack

    5 dont wash your hands inside the carcase... wear gloves

    for me personally the key word is "field"

    Only cut the smallest holes possible
    Don't cut the sternum or pelvis

    whether you are a card carrying best practice believer and have your marigolds in your pocket or not
    the most contamination is through the wound and incision

    I would say washing your hands into the chest is probably not the best idea either....
