"Bone Saw"

Just curious if there are any bone saws that you guys really like. I tend to either backpack hunt or get pretty far in so weight is important. I have the WY saw which is great, but I don't love packing it. Thanks!

I used the Outdoor Edge Kodiak-Pak saw last year to take a skull plate off. It sucks took longer to take the skull plate off than skin and quarter the deer. I also am looking for a good, light, bone saw.

I've used several types. Based on what I've seen and used I believe you already have the best one out there.

I'm with Deerlove! Do you really need one? I've hunted everything from deer, elk, moose, sheep, mtn goats and have never used a saw for around 40 years! Take a look at the "gutless" method in youtube and you will never need more than a knife! I usually hunt fairly rough, remote country and the least amount of weight and bulk in my pack...the better!

Solid point. I guess I don't truly need one, I just think it makes things easier. I've been doing the gutless method for years, but I typically don't de-bone the meat (something I've been considering more and more). I shot a good 5X5 this year, but it wasn't something I was going to mount and I didn't want to pack the skull. Thanks for the input.

Need one?
Not for quartering.
Not for deboning.
Not even for removing the head.
But I don't know of an easier way to remove a skull plate. Do any of you?

Just pack a blade and then improvise a bow saw on the spot, if you need it.

I love the Wyoming Saw. It cuts through bone in a big hurry. I'm talking about elk leg bones. That is some heavy bone.

A inside joke with my brothers is that if you need a saw for the skullplate you shouldn't have shot it. LOL

If I am going to do a full mount and far from the truck I bring a saw for the skull plate, head gets heavy. Bought the small WY saw, lighter than the head.

14. "RE: Bone Saw"

I have historically been in same boat.

Never saw a bone except skull plate. Debone all other body parts in about 15 min.

I had never skinned the head off, but shot a buck worthy of a mount this year, but not so worthy I could resort to a Euro, so I tried it, following my taxi's advice around ears and lips, though could have done better at bases. Anyway, it wasn't hard, didn't take long, and after I removed the easy goodies off it, the skull was quite light and not likely worth carrying a saw for(yay!).

That said, elk are another story and skull capping those buggers can be a pain in the A$$. I've used a few smaller folder, but broke as many as I didn't. WY saws are great in a Horse Pannier, but not my daypack. Love more ideas specifically for skull capping Elk/Moose sized critters.

PS I'd love to shoot a Bighorn, but would hate to carry a mature rams skull out. Some day I'll suffer through that, or hopefully my 20 something son will carry it for old dad.

I've had a Gerber saw for years and really like it. Long enough to actually get a decent stroke, not heavy, and doesn't take up much pack space.

Muddyboots,
I also carry the little Gerber saw. I use it mostly on branches. I did take a skull plate off no problem on brothers bull down in nasty place.
