So what do you like to use for your field dressing Big Game.

See a lot of people using the Puukko, Buck Knives Paklite, Buck 119, Havalon, Becker has the BK14 like the ESEE Izula.

The sharpest knife I have at that particular time. Varies from time to time but partial to buck knives in general.

Havalon, cutco, or my knife I got from Nimrod 1949.

The havalons are the berries for caping.

I use Puma for general gutting and skinning. Without a doubt the best caping blade I've ever used is the Havalon, like Ralphie said.

I generally use an Uncle Henry LB-7 or Buck 110 for field dressing and skinning and a Gransfors Bruks hunters axe for quartering.

I've got well over 30 Ingrams, May's and Winstons...and I use a Havalon. Can't beat a disposable scalpel blade at $5 a dozen for this task.

Cutco, Fallkniven F1, and possibly the Dozier that I just got as a gift from a friend, but I haven't tried that one yet.

Slow down son young bull old bull! It is fare from hunting season. For skinning I like the Alaska muckrat. Next month caping. You have five months tied up there.
