Dang, I keep trying to think of reasons why that wouldn't work, but I'm stuck! Seems like a great idea, you'd still have to gut it to get at the inside loins, I think, but I just may have to try this trick!Just wondering! I mentioned this before several threads ago. But I remember reading an article of this hunter who would debone the carcass out in the field. He would lay the deer on its back and make splits up the deers arms and legs, and chest. Then he would debone the deer leaving the meat clinging to the skin. He then would layer saran wrap on the flesh side of the meat and then roll the meat and hide up. He would start rolling at the hind quarters and make a bed roll like toward the head and tie it off to the head. He would then use the antlers as a handle to carry the deer out.
