    How long should it take to tie up a buck, drain it, gut it and have it ready for supper time? Is there a "world's fastest" record out there?

    The Worlds Fastest Deer Skinner lives in my county. He set the record in 1983 (I think). It is 34 seconds, hung, skinned and quartered.

        I hang my meat 3-5 days with the hide on. I'd be in last place.

          Me too Buck Hunter! In his formative years this fellow used to hunt on the other side of the fence with alternative lighting (if you catch my drift) and had to be fast!

            My gut (pardon the pun) feeling has always been that somewhere in the neighborhood of 45 minutes between the gutting, hanging, skinning and quartering processes would be a good goal. I never hit the target myself...

              To Beekeeper, like the "alternative lighting" comment.

                I was gonna mention that some poacher would hold this record but thought it wiser to save the comment. I didn't want to insult the legit master of the gut pile.

                I will say that while in college I had a hot date but ended up shooting a deer that night. I gutted, dragged it near a mile then hung it in time to be only 1 hour late and smelling like a gut pile.

                I can't remember her name but I bet she remembers mine!

                  34 seconds ?!? That would be fun to see on video! It usually takes me an 45min to one hour to skin, quarter and hang a deer in game bags. Gutting in the field usually takes 5-10 min.
                  buckhunter, you hang with the skin on? My experience has been that it makes the meat a lot less gamey if it cools quicker in the bags rather than in the skin. Plus it is way easier to skin when the kill is fresh.

                    It takes us about 3 minutes to get it field dressed, but we wait untill the end of the season to quarter tehm because we usually will have about 5-6 deer to quarter. We hang them with the meat on and use the big outdoors as the freezer. we just find time some weekend to cut them up and prepare for supper. We farm though so there are nights we will shoot a deer, put it in teh pickup,do chores, then go back when done with chores and use a pen light. Me and Dad have gotten pretty good at gutting from the pickup with barely any light except to see if all the entrails are out. I gues having field dressed 20 odd deer past dark in teh last 2 years helps.

                      It usually take 2 or 3 days. Don't know the record.

                        I would guess the total time required would depend on the deer being dead before it is tied up. It is going to take considerably longer if the deer has something to say about. Definitely better to start with a dead deer.

                          Chuckles, I always hang my deer with the skin on. It keeps it dry if it rains. Also, If you take a baseball bat to the deer while it is hanging you'll be surprised how tender you can make it.
