Butt Out Tool

11 posts in this topic

This is a tool to remove the anal alimentary canal from deer.

Has anyone used or seen this tool in action and how well did it work?

We used it on one deer this fall and it really worked great. Pretty handy tool and inexpensive too. I would recommend keeping one in your hunting pack.

I agree. It works great and I would highly recommend getting one. They're easy and simple to sue and saves your hunting blade as well as time. They'll be your new best friend.

I simply trim around the anal area with my knife and then after gutting the deer, simply pull it all out. Works great without a tool.

I do what Harvey Lee does. Nothing wrong with a good tool, but the fewer tools I need to bring in my pack, the happier I am.

How do you get the twisted azz off the tool?

you cut it off. takes 2 seconds. I like fewer tools/gadgets too, but it takes up minimal space and weighs maybe 2 ounces. you really don't notice it. Plus, it's a step that's been made easier.

I am with Harvey and Steve, I just use a knife and some wax lacing cord and pull the whole works out from the front. I do use a smaller blade than I used to when field dressing. My current knife is only about 3.5 inches long.

That butt-out tool does look pretty slick, however. If I dressed out more than a couple of deer, I'd probably get one.

I like tying off the anus, no little pellets (or green goo) to contaminate the meat. But you better have a SHARP knife when doing your cutting around it.

I used the butt out twice this fall, I fully recommend it. I used to carry a folding filet knife for cutting around the sphincter, but decided the night before my opening weekend at FF to buy one, for 9 bucks I figured it was worth it. The first time I used it, I didn't twist right or pulled too hard and it ripped part way, but I was still able to tie off. On Turkey Day, I used it again on my brother in laws buck and used a zip tie, works slick as snot......that butt out tool has garnered a spot next to my hagens bone saw as two tools I won't go deer hunting with out. Now that the seasons are basically over, pick one up, they work well, the second time I was done in less than 30 seconds

I was going to buy one before hunting and thought, its not that big of a deal to do it the normal way with a knife, so I didnt buy it, i cleaned 4 deer opening day, bought one the next day, we didnt get anymore deer after that. So I never got to use it, but I have it for next year, and I am glad they have a good review!

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
