Default Racking to bottling bucket

Should I suck up all the yeast/gunk at the bottom or try to leave that behind?

Leave as much of it behind as you can.

I give my racking cane a quick "brush" along the bottom to kick up some yeast to make sure I have enough for bottling, then leave the rest behind.
