|lots of ways of doing things, when gutting a deer or any animal that you want to take out whole, and you wnat to keep the heart and liver, take out the intestines and such like normal except find where the esphogus ,food pipe comes though the diaphram and kind of strip any contents towards the intestines before you cut. you are basically taking the intestines below the diaphram first. cut the diaphram from neer the backbone up around the chest leaving a portion of diaphram which the liver is attached to hanging from the backbone. leave the heart attached to arteries and such in the upper cavity by cutting the lungs out seperately. windpipe can be taken out later when get where your going too. heart stays in liver stays in , make your deer into a pack by sliting the hind legs just above the knee leaving the big tendon intack, "T" ing the front leg at the knee, cross em and put it on your back. hope this makes sense, it works.
