Default Butt-Out Tool for mature deer?

Remove this ad.....

Guys,

I've got about a 50% success rate with this tool...it seems that the more mature the deer, the less the butt-out tool works...2.5 year old and older, this thing goes in, and comes right back out. Any ideas on how I could modify this or make it work better? I really don't see how I can coin this other than bigger deer have bigger buttholes, and this butt-out tool seems to be for small buttholed deer...

With a small, sharp knife the buttout tool is unnecessary.

Buy a butt out tool from Illinois. Their 'standard' size is our 'magnum'.

I think I am still running 1.0? Maybe that is my problem...

I agree - where there's a will, there's a way.

"With a small, sharp knife the buttout tool is unnecessary"...

Ahh yes, but with a finely tuned butt-tool, a small, sharp knife is unnecessary too.

Not if the small, sharp knife is your only sharp knife.
BTW... what are you feeding your deer? You may need to add certain suppliments...

I have Buttout 1.0, and have used it for four seasons now.

The only failures I have had have been on fawns, where the delicate anal cavity simply rips. It's worked like a charm on does and bucks 4.5+ years of age.

I like the tool; it is much faster and easier than my old method of slicing around the anus with a knife.

I've said it before about this tool... I shoot a lot of doe's and until they make a double headed version, I'm not buying one.

I shoot a few does... and I just use the same head twice, no need for a double headed one.

As for it not being big enough - keep twisting until you feel it bind.
