He aims to make use of every part of the animal he hunted, therefore attempting to preserve all of it before it rots, however he finds himself and the carcass to become swarmed in mosquitos, flies-- and before he knows it-- maggots, once he tries to gut the animal, which forces him to discard most of the corpse, leaving it to the wolves.
