you should be fine to bow hunt the next day, i sometimes bow hunt during gun. an yes you should never field dress a deer i'd say within 200 yards of your hunting area. i hunt privet land n its only about 1 mile away n i load the harvest up n field dress here at the house. n by doing this i've hunted the same area later the same day or the next morning many times in the past n seen deer n turkey both in that area. if you cant take it home field dress realy close to were you are parking , i say that only because your parking there only because you feel its far enough away from your hunting area that your truck will not hurt your hunting well your field dressing should be that same distance as well.
