Having packed out many moose over the years I have to wonder? Dressing a Moose on a grade in a snow storm is good. You just open the Moose and the guts fall out?? Really how many animals have you really packed out?

Use gravity to your advantage when possible

If possible try to position the animal where his head is higher or on the uphill slope so it allows for the majority of the guts and blood to drain out of the chest cavity making your job a little easier. Especially with bigger animals where moving them is an issue.

Here is where it's from. You've seriously never heard of this??? Been doing this for years.

Yes but did you ever try to explain gravatational pull to a dead Moose? They don't always fall in the right direction as dictated in Mark Trails Hunting tips. Moving a 1,000 lbs of dead weight in wet snow and mud is a problem.
And don't mind three horses who think the smell of blood is the open gate at the Cheyenne Rodeo.
