Dean , you dont want to gut it , you want to skin it . Make a cut in the bottom skin from the head to the tail and remove the skin . Now the hard part comes , you have to remove all the tendon and meat from the skin without cutting it to pieces . If you dont think you can do it without destroying it , then call a taxidermist and see if they can skin it for you . P.S. its going to take a long time to get that 60 lbs of meat to thaw out .
