    Removed the glands before cleaning the deer.
    no need to gut the deer if it isn’t gut shot.
    i’ve never had spoiled or bad meat doing it this way.
    its actually cleaner to me.
    to each his own though.

    I haven't read it all either, but I will say I NEVER touch these!!! Get that mess on your hands or gloves and touch the meat.....bad medicine.

    the way we do it is put on a pair of gloves, cut the glands off,
    throw that pair away, hang him up, and clean the deer.

    duxnbucks,

    I too was taught to remove them years ago, what you say makes perfect sense in your situation, basically you are removing them, cleaning up your hands, gutting the deer later. Not a thing wrong with that.

    Navajo,

    Same thing as above, that works.

    Like I said, I was taught to remove them. Over the years, I have done both many times. Left them on, or removed. Honestly, I just never seen any difference at all. I felt like I would get more contamination by handling them versus not. Never touching them works best for me.

    We gut it where it drops. We generally have disposable field dressing gloves. We all carry them little saws to cut the pelvis bone too. Drag them to the truck and the end of the hunt we hang them up usually in the unheated garage so they dont freeze (mostly they do) we then butcher them ourselfs unless we are going to have meat sticks made. My ten pointer i got this year i just took to the processor a couple days later because it froze through and through in the garage. We got until the end of the year to fill our other tags. Hopefully it wont be to cold and we will get to butcher it ourselves since we have a nice dehydrator for jerky making.
