Field dressing help

I found a new product a few years ago that really helps in the field dressing of deer & bear. The product's name is Butt-Out and for those who chuckle at it's name or it's uses you might want to take another look. I've used it on several deer the last 2-3 years and it has never failed to save me time and mess. I've had a couple of skeptical friends chuckle when I pulled it out of my pack (weighs about 2 ounces) and got ready to utilize it.

I then look them in the eye and simply say, "watch this and then comment to me". When Ed has the anus cored out and tied off in a total of 1 minute and also done clean as a whistle, to the hunter they simply sat and stared for a few moments. I'm pretty sure each of them owns their own B/Os now, And yes, we tried it, with great success on a Maine black bear last year. The guide was very skeptical and simply stood there shaking his head in disbelief at how well it worked.

Try it, you'll like it!!  Yes

Seen it

Seen it before, but always wondered how would you dislodge the anus from the tool after using it?  For that reason alone I steered clear of that product.  I typically use a  6" bladed flexible fillet knife for cutting around it to free it.

dislodging it

Once I have the anus tied off, I simply slice off behind my string and then one more quick cut down the center of the tool from handle to opposite end. Maybe another 15-30 seconds.

Useful

I've used the tool and it can be handy. 

But if you pull too hard after inserting it and twisting you tear the tissue and end up worse off than before you started since your deer now has a perferated intestine.

 

So go ahead and use it to make life easier. 

But use it carefully!
