It depends on where I’m hunting as to whether I bring the deer out of the field or process it where it expired. If it’s a relatively short drag to the vehicle and there’s a water hose, etc., at a close facility (like my house), I prefer bringing the deer out of the field before processing. This allows me to keep the meat cleaner and I can collect the deer’s body weight, etc.
It’s also faster and and easier for me to keep the meat clean if I hang the deer before gutting and processing the meat.
