Make sure to tie-off the hiney hole
|When preparing a deer butt alien head
the old fashioned way (from scratch), it's important to tie off the anus
with a piece of string so that the white tail area does not become
soiled with deer doo-doo when you cut-open your treasure.
You need to carefully open-up your deer, starting right
above the groin. Once the incision is made you will need to
tie-off the anus again, from the inside, and then sever the large
intestine right above the tie.

In fact, every animal has enough brains to tan their own hide,

The anus can be made very simple, or you can stretch the anus for
realistic effects such as smiles and frowns.
In general, the leading deer butt artists concentrate
on the details of the mouth.
