Here are some links that might help:

Gutless Elk Method (Bugle's Picture Guide to Quartering an Elk Without Gutting It)

Gutless Antelope Method (HuntingNut News The Gutless Field Dressing Method)

Make sure you leave evidence of sex on the animal, and the properly affixed tag!

Good luck!

Re: Packing in vs. out

I use a similar method to bone out deer without gutting the animal.
The main differance is that I leave the skin on the legs. This keeps the meat clean and you only need a meat bag for the back straps etc.
