If the guy knew how to process the right way he wouldnt need.a saw zaw. all joints pop right apart with a swipe of the knife and the hide is worthless the way he skins it. Just a waste of an animal with all he is leaving on the carcass he left at least 10# of good meat on it

LEM makes/sells some great seasonings for sticks, summer sausage and fresh sausages, making it real easy to use the trim

Just because "HE" does it that way doesn't mean we all do. I haven't gutted an elk or deer in years, all that's left when I'm done is the meat between the ribs, (got to give a little back)

Elk no gut

Last moose i quartered i used the no gut method, in part due to having so many griz around. Gutted caribou as they blout so quick. No gut doesn't mean you don't take the tenderloin

You don't need a saw for the joints.

You can reach in from the top and remove the t-loin. they sit outside of the paunch.

Pretty handy. You can put an entire white tail in a gallon ziplock and throw a lot of the good parts away !

We are never far from the skinning shed so we dont field dress first.

I like to use a hook and cut the hide down the belly and also down the back. That way I only have to skin half a deer at a time. Much easier to skin that way

Guys: you can't compare a moose or even an elk to a deer. You quarter a moose or elk as noted due to size. It took two of us to move one hind quarter away from the kill site to hopefully avoid discovery by a grizzly. It is nothing compared to deer

Moose are big and a lot of work even when you can back up to them

The meat doesn't touch ground.

To access tenderloins, reach in from on top of the spine to underneath, will feel them and start a cut to take out. Patrice posted a video that shows just how herself and I like to do that.

I do like that saws-all .

Very similar to handling big game such as elk and moose.





Yep, in the field like Sharon illustrated, is all I have done forever. I haven't gutted or dragged a big game animal 35 plus years.

Wanton Waste Laws. My Grandfather ate apples one winter as a teenager as he was so poor. I see these hunters now breasting out geese and throwing away the rest of the meat. If I did anything that wasted any food, I would have had my gun taken away as a kid and never be allowed to ever hunt again. There used to be wanton waste laws which forbid what is now a modern laziness of just taking the breasts or loins out of game.
I remember reading Teddy Roosevelt talking about the same thing when he first started hunting in the West. Then it was tongues, humps and hams. By the time he was done at the Elkhorn Ranch, he ate everything as meat was hard to come by.
People get hungry again they will understand why the Indian ate the innards first as animals do, as that is where the nutrients are. I am from a different tribe than this modern one.

I actually love ribs on any animal deer,moose,bear and hogs if they are not shot up.


There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness

I eat the ribs. Up here it is common to see the backstraps cut out, hams taken, and maybe the shoulders, but the neck wasted, and sometimes the shoulders.
