Whenever I find something really cool, I like to share it with my readers.
I’ll be the first to admit this, but I didn’t purchase the Hunters Specialties Butt Out tool. My friend did. When he told me about this tool, I thought, “Another sucker is born.” He purchased it at the local Wal-Mart store and showed it too me. I still wasn’t impressed. It looked like a gimmick.
He was so anxious to use this tool. The subject of this tool came up several times. It wasn’t until I killed the first deer of the year during the Oklahoma Primitive Firearms Season that we had an opportunity to use it.
I have to eat Crow on this one. This tool makes what is normally a messy job of removing the anal canal a snap. No more cutting around the rectum.
This is one of those tools that when you see it used, you slap your head and say “Why didn’t I think of that!”
The only thing that I would change is making the handle longer. I think it would be easier to use for people with large hands.
If you’ve always hated this part of the field dressing, I feel your pain! The Butt Out tool will make this chore easy and pain free and for about $10. If you field dress a lot of deer each year, I bet you’ll agree it’s the best $10 you ever spent!
