Or you can just blame it on old age and tell them to respect their elders...

Re: Field Dressing

rooster47,Lookes like you guided out of the Gardner area, awsome elk picts.Saw the "why you dont guide" pict. I went over there 20 yrs ago with my dad and he shot a bison. Remember seeing 7x7 booner elk in town, never did get a tag. The number of game back then and guality was amazing, somebody from here was always coming home with one of those great bulls. I DONT NO IF THAT LATE SEASON HUNT EVEN exists anymore? Ialways wanted to go after one of those big boys.

Rooster740, Nice pics! It sure looks as if a body could 'Slip-N-Slide' all over the place down there.

Nice pics!

As others have asked, are you out of Gardiner? Work for an outfitter?
I went hunting there this past fall, and would love to know if you could tell us more.

Re: Field Dressing

I quit gutting animals I pack long distance about 5 years ago. I still the tenderloins. I will never go back to the gut method again. You end up rolling around in the mess and I see no point to it anymore.

Re: Field Dressing

We have been leaving the guts in and just skinning one side take all the meat off that side and than flip it over skin the other side and do the same. The back straps and tenderloins are easy to remove also all the neck meat etc. Usally carry all our stuff out by foot with the rear quarters boned out and carry the fronts. If ya really want the heart ya go in after.... Easy peasy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
