As for myself, I use a gut hook on my bird knife all the time when I shoot something. I found that pellets, when pentrating the body cavity puncher the organs and that can taint the meat. Also I use a sharp stick, stick it into the body cavity, twist the stick afew times and yank it out, majority of the inners come out of the birds nicely. I try not to leave organs in my bird for any longer than I have too. Another way to breast out a bird in a hurry is; lay the bird on its back on the ground, put a foot on each wing, grab the legs and pull, breasts and such come right out.
