    What do you do after your antelope is down?

    Last year my dad and I killed 4 antelope. The first 2 antelope we butchered in the field without field dressing them and received a $400 fine for not retrieving the inner tenderloins when WGFD showed up at our camp later in the day!! Needless to say the other 2 antelope we killed the following morning were field dressed, brought back to camp, hung from a tree and butchered the old fashion way!! We noticed that the antelope that were butchered without field dressing tasted fantastic while the 2 we field dressed and brought back to camp weren't quite as delicious but still quite tasty. Wondered how others handled thier antelope after harvesting?

    if your careful, you can remove the tenderloin without a complete field dressing. Takes a little practice but you can get to them after you remove the backstraps. Theres a video somewhere ive seen that shows how to do this. Ive been doing it the last couple years and man is it nice not have to deal with a gut pile!

    Ill try to find that video for you.

    I haven't gutted a animal in years! Why? We pack our animals out on our backs. We quarter, debone, and pack out. The small little loins are not required to remove in Nv.

    Regardless of regs. The tenderloin is my absolute favorite piece of meat, so there's no way im leaving without it!

    The definition of edible portions lists the inner tenderloin as well as the other obvious cuts of meat. It was my own fault for not reading the definition of "Edible Portions". The game warden was very professional and polite, just my own screw up!!

    Even gutless the loins are accessible. One of the best cuts on em.
