Big game should be gutted as soon as possible, preferably within an hour of the animal’s death,” Rinella said in an article called “Field Tips For Gutting a Big Game Animal.”

Myran explained how even after he gutted a moose, he could see the stomach expanding.  “As soon as you kill the moose, they start to bloat, their stomach will bloat right in front of you, you can see it getting bigger. .. you have to get the stomach out of there ‘cause it will burst … you need several people to get (a moose) field dressed right on the spot,” Myran said.   [full article]
