I pride myself on being able to disassemble a deer pretty quickly. But judging from this video, I have a long way to go in terms of stripping down an animal.
This fella, who apparently works at Peach Orchard Deer Processing outside of Sumter, S.C., takes the hide off a deer and dumps its guts - and trims off fat - in less than two minutes. It's a video you just have to see to believe.
Hunter Safety System’s TreeStalker II eliminates dangers so you can enjoy your hunt comfortably. No more dangling straps and weave-through buckles, the vest stays snug and eliminates unnecessary bulk and the 1 ¼-inch thin tether absorbs more shock than ever before. This Realtree X-Tra Camouflage harness weighs only 2 pounds, will keep you cool and dry all season long and its lightweight leg buckles make for easy dressing in the field.
A while back I wrote about the similarities between bass fishing and deer hunting.
