Bone Saw

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions on a good bone saw for the field kit?

This one broke, customer service was good about it and they're sending me a replacement but ł want something that will hold up longer than a year or two.

I bought this one at Runnings this fall, used it once and it worked pretty good.  Seems sturdy.

Seen this, very similar design as the one ł broke.

Mine broke first use, dismantling the rib cage none the less. Butchered the doe in the city, had to slim her down since ł couldn't just drag the carcass in to the woods.

The pink paracord is because my buddy dropped my good bone saw in the woods last year while ł taught him how to field dress one. We never found it, wasn't going to happen to this one.

If you want it to be more field oriented, flip-n-zip smaller folding from outdoor edge or Gerber makes one with a really nice ergo handle.

What do you need a bone saw for in the field ?

My field kit goes with me wherever ł hunt.

On a number of occasions ł have helped others process their harvest when they're underprepared, doesn't hurt to have it and not need it.

The 2 I mentioned are smaller. Work fantastic but I wouldn't butcher a deer with them. Sternum and pelvic cuts are a beeze

When ł say process ł am referring to butchering and carcass breakdown for disposal. Beginning to end.

The owner of one of the places ł hunt has a couple dogs, his only rule is don't leave the carcasses because he doesn't like the dogs getting to them. Burying them just makes it fun for them so they get broke down and into a garbage bag they go.

When ł bring them to the city for processing ł get some good reactions, can't just put a carcass in the garbage tote so that's another situation where ł'm hackimg through the sternum, pelvis and ribs.

it could've just been a bad piece of metal.i'd try the new one before buying a new one.

I had a lonewolf stick ladder step snap so I sent it back got a new one with a note explaining there was a air bubble in the one that broke.
