Make sure all hair is off the deer and dry out the insides with paper towels. If the inside was contaminated by a gut shot or you nicked the bladder or stomach during field dressing, pour some apple cider vinegar in the body cavity, wipe it around with a wet paper towel. Finally, wipe with dry towels. This will reduce bacteria and also reduce and gamey flavor.

Now your deer is ready for quartering.
