what? Don't tell me you hang your deer upside down!
I sometimes will bucket splash the cavity if there's a lot of blood or if someone makes a low hit and stomach juice leaks out so you want everything to drain down and out. If it were hanging upside down then things would pool up in the chest neck area and you don't want that. Hanging the deer by the north end makes sense to me, only way I've ever strung them up. What's the purpose of hanging them upside down? You're going to some get hair on them either way when skinning. Now when butchering I'll reverse them as it allows the last hind 1/4 to hang after cutting the spine off but for hanging on the meat pole, by the head, for me please.
