Backcountry Break Down – Randy Newberg Shows How To Field Process Game With The Gutless Method

August 13, 2013

At some point in the last few years, I’ve talked about field-dressing game using the “gutless method.”  It’s a great technique when you’re way back in the backcountry, especially when you have to pack out a large animal solo.  Best of all, you can do it all with a good knife.  No saw.  No axe.  No pulleys or winches.

In this video, Randy Newberg (On Your Own Adventures and Fresh Tracks) shows how he does it, step-by-step with great video work.

    I’m just curious you said on your show that the farther you gt away from roads the more populated the game and the more roads less habitat for elk the more they will move until there are no more elk, your sadly mistaken here on the coast of oregon we have a road every few hundred yards and the elk are so dense it would blow your mind and mature old bulls I can blow a 300 inch bull and be on a different one a road away.

    Ross, actually, it’s not my show, it’s Randy Newberg’s show. However, in reference to his statement about getting away from roads, it was something of a general point and, for the most part it’s pretty accurate. Sure, there are exceptional places, and it appears that your spot in Oregon is one of them. But on most of the public lands I’ve hunted across three western states, and for all of the places Mr. Newberg has hunted, all you’re going to find on roads is other hunters.

    Good luck with your 300″ bulls.
