Good luck, looking forward to seeing pics. I just skin the nuts out like the rest and leave them attached to the big muscles you bone out on the hindquarters. A lot of people leave the hair, but that's the last thing I want in there with my prime steak meat. I'm sure CO is different, but in AK the warden told me to bring a large zip-loc and pack the rib meat out in that(shot up or not) just to be on the safe side. He said it's such a small amount of weight that it's worth it to carry them out in the zip-loc (even if they are no good and you have to discard them later) just to have no question on waste of meat when checked.
Have a great hunt!
I leave the skinned out nuts attached to a large piece of meat. Its easy to do if you are thinking about it before you start.
Thanks for everyone's input. These were questions I had as well.
Check out the "rib roll" method on YouTube
Yep, did the rib roll for the first time this year myself. Lifesaver! That meat makes exceptional roasts too. All the fat and sinew in there breaks down and is delicious. 3rd most underrated cut of meat off wild game behind the shanks and a good neck roast.
You can leave a small portion of the skinned out male organ attached to one of the hams with some careful knife work. Just the very end of it is enough. Been checked a few times at the trail head and never had a problem.
