I agree with cmherrmann....spend more time getting that deer checked in and to a cooler somewhere....you can open up the breastbone and remove the windpipe then....cmherrmann said:I do very similiar to what is done on the link in the previous post except I do not cut above the breast bone. I good tool for removing the anus is the Deere-e-ere http://www.deer-e-ere.com/ This thing works as easy as they say it does, my cousin only has one arm and he uses it with ease.
