    Dozens of deer. Never needed to split the pelvis. One buck did have a very small canal and that added a slight bit of time. Still no big deal. One doe seemed to have everything glued in. Those two......all else piece of cake.

    If alone it might take me a few mins extra. Still an easy task. Easy to do quick and neat. Yet some folks struggle year after year. I find it comical.

    IMHO they make it way harder than it is. Probably more of a mental thing than physical.

    Fighting themselves I think.

      I agree. The hardest part about getting the poop chute freed up without splitting pelvis is the bending over. A big beer gut getting in the way doesn't help either. Belt line hangover is not a problem for me but still tough on this old man. Yes, it is easy enough to split the pelvis with a sharp hatchet or even knife ... IF there are three guys to do the job. Two to hold the legs apart and put pressure on them plus the sharp object and mallet operator guiding the tools. I usually hunt alone. Trying to split pelvis by oneself is a tough job. Done it lots of times quartering elk ... but only because it had to be done to get the meat out on horses. Cutting one of those big critters into four pieces by myself was a genuine SOB. Doubt I could manage it today.

        To answer Rock Rat's question, I would say that Joe Biden would be the least objectionable candidate of the Democratic group.
