    I use a 1970s Buck Special for the initial cut and to separate the rib cage/pelvis area. The rest of the field dressing is done with a 1990s folding Buck Hunter.

    i got some real early stuff from the teens and 20's
    i keep in the house i spent years tracking down...
    it makes you think man.

    Nice collection and I I want one of those case folders, but I need to stop buying knives because I need to liquidate them someday.


    I've been giving away knives to young hunters in our group or pocket knoves to some of my likeable boy scouts. I would rather do it early than wait to the end when they have bought their own stuff.

    I carry a Case or a Gerber fixed blade in my pack, and a Case Trapper folder in a holster I made many years ago for a Swiss Army knife.

    When I lived in Thorne Bay I had two deer down a couple of miles from the road, only to find that I hadn't put the fixed blade in the pack that day. Major OOPS! The little folder got a good workout by the time I had gutted, skinned and boned out both of them. I also learned right then to carry something with which to sharpen the knives; the second deer took a lot of work with a dull pocket knife!

    Several knife guys on 24hr campfire use victorinox paring knives for breaking down animals. They pack a few in the weight and bulk of a stout folder.

    I tried one of them too and gave it to my neice. It was just a bit too tall of blade for me on mn white tails.
