    I absolutely love hunting them. I've been hunting them the last 20 years and have only used my longbow.

    If you are going to field dress it it is better to leave the gland on the skin and not mess with it. In most cases we carry it out and hang them for a couple of days with the skin on, in these cases we remove it. Where we hunt them we are usually pretty close to a road, if we aren't then we field dress it.

    We normally get ours skinned pretty quickly. If I was going to hang them a day or 2 with the skin on, I would definitely remove the gland.

    My brother and I were talling about just field dressing them the other day, it will make them lighter and easier to carry out. I've been wanting to do European style skull on one of them but I haven't been able to get a complete skull without some damage from the shot. It would look really nice on the wall.
