    when you kill a deer, should you field dress it wear it falls or should you drag it a ways away from your stand and the deer trail?

    if you plan to hunt the stand again soon yes do not leave a gut pile laying anywhere near youre stand site as this will run the deer out of the area for some time

      The gut pile will attract scavengers and predators that will spook the deer away. I always drag the whole deer to a place where I can drive a vehicle and load up and take it back to camp to do the cleaning. I'm fortunate to have access to these facilities and also a place to dispose of the offal. If the terrain between the kill site and the road involves to much vertical surface, I'll gut him before I drag him out and hunt somewhere else for a few days.

        after living in grizzly bear country in the rockies I still drag my deer to an area where I can see a ways.I dont think Ive heard of an eastern black bear attacking a hunter while gutting a deer, but old habits die hard.

          Deer do not know what mortality is, as in they don't know what a gut pile is or where it came from. But like pineywoods said it will bring in the yotes and bears and that will definately scare off the deer.
