    I have never seen anything worse then a CA coast buck for getting you full of flees and ticks after the deer gets cold.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1JX3P0Sx58, this was kindof cool. I've never seen it done this way. I am not so fond of the fleas and ticks or blood with the EHD, chronic wasting,etc. I am not sure how all that affects humans, but I don't want to be patient zero either.

    Yep, that's the way my Dad taught me to do it. Probably packed my first one like that around 1955 or so when I was 14. From then on as I was the young buck, I got the "honor" of packing all the deer my Dad & Grandfather shot. If it wasn't so messy, it's not too bad. To keep the deer up high, all you have to do is push down on the hind legs as you are walking. I also started sewing the gutted body cavity up as it kept lots of the blood off, but never quite figured how to keep the fleas, ticks and lice off. Also added a big, red bandana to the horns.

    That's how I've carried out most of my Blacktails. Yeah fleas get on you, but it's not that big a deal. What's worse is washing all the crusty dry blood out of your butt when you finally get home. Be sure to drain the cavity as good as possible before putting it on your back.

    The first one in the new pack. It was about 110#. I was closer to base camp than spike camp, so I went back later to get camp out.

    That would be very nice. Drop them right in the bed of your truck and go. I might have to try the backpack deal this year on a antegoat or deer. I suppose you have to actually shoot them first. That hasn't been my strong suit.

    Like I mentioned, carry some heavy thread (I used Dacron fishing line) and a big bent needle and sew the bugger back together. Keeps lots of the blood off of you.
