you question my skills? did you happen to read my post on headshots in this thread?
I've taken a few deer, cleaned up a bunch, now where did I get these outrageous times, think about it.
takes 2-5 minutes to gut a deer, if its lungshot you leave most of the blood from the animal at the gutpile when you dump the blood out of the chest cavity, however on headshot deer it takes an hours or a bit more to fully process a deer, and your dealing with much bloodier meat the whole time.
Now I've probably cleaned up 200 or so deer, shot about anywhere they can be shot, my experience shows that headshot game is much messier to clean up and process than bled-out game.
Is that statement so outrageous?
