    Quartered on the spot by skinning one side and using the inside skin as a table cloth for your work.

    My black-tail this year... fell 2.5 miles from the truck.

    I can see your carabiner method may help me in some situations in the future.

    I do as well. I can bone a deer in half an hour. I don’t mess with the guts until everything but the tenderloin is off the carcass. Makes for a quick easy job. We keep a dedicated fridge for aging the meat before final butchering.

    I did this for the first time myself this fall. But saw @ROCKET do it on Red Stags in Argentina.

    Except didn't mess with guts at all. Just made a careful cut below the short ribs and reached in for those inner fillets. I think Rocket reached in and cut a bit with a knife on that larger and older stag, but I did it on a young doe and just ran my fingers around to get them loose.

    Rocket is fast, but even on my first try it was very quick and clean.

    That’s a great idea. I’ll try that on the next one.

    You’re right! My wife shot a nice buck tonight. After I had I fully boned out I carefully made a slit at the short ribs and removed the tenderloins without gutting the carcass, awesome! Thanks for the tip!
