I like to get the deer away from my hunting area if I can. It depends on the temp, and where I am. If I know it will take a while to get back to my truck or camp I field dress it before I leave the area. I have found that guts around your stand doesn't bother the deer much but the yotes and other creatures that eat them do. If I have a short trip back to camp I wait until I get there to gut the deer,if its not to hot.
