    I can seen the benefit of doing this method. But, how do you get the loins that are located within the chest/abdominal? Those are one of the tastiest parts!

    There is a video on YouTube that goes through the process of dressing a bison. Very interesting to watch. By the time they were done, there was nothing but bones left.

    Re: Field Dressing

    Maybe this two threads can help with that. I havent done it with elk, never hunted one, but it works on whitetails. The trick to take the tenderloins out is to stay very close to the back ribs, with the knife edge aiming towards the bone, in this way you will stay out of the peritoneum which is the layer that surrounds the guts, and with gentle dissection with your fingers you can get the tenderloins out whithout the need of using a knife.
    I found one of this threads in this website and the other one on the net, there are some videos on youtube also.
    Hope this helps.

    I think it is wise to gut an animal to inspect the organs also, there is a lot of funky stuff floating around. You should make sure the liver and lungs look healthy.

    Not sure why people think a bison is hard to field dress. Just grab him by one leg and pull the hide off then sling him into the back of the truck.
