Every 2-3years, I go down to Lowes or Home Depot and buy a miter box saw. I think they call them cross cut saws now. About $15. I use them every year on elk

Take a look at Knapp on eBay. Best saw ever made!

Take them to your local saw shop every few years and have them sharpen it. I’ve had mine for about 20yrs.

I've done that, and it sure does work if you're OK with the weight or hunting off horses. I saw a small chainsaw used one time too. Other than the bar oil getting on things, it worked pretty goodlaugh.


As far as a bone saw, the original Wyoming saw is what I have used for quite a while. I believe there are some knock offs out there....so make sure to get it through Wyoming Knife products. I've quit carrying it though, since I discovered using a good hatchet, and don't even use one of them anymore on critters since going completely gutless. All a guy needs is a knife and knowledge of the joints.

I haven't used bone saws for decades. Just a hatchet to split the brisket and the pelvis, then a sharp knife to cut into and through the joints.


I belong on eroding granite, among the pines.

I have little personal experience with using saws on animals as I am a solo back pack hunter so everything gets broken down with a small kestrel (A+!!!) knife and packed out deboned. The times I’ve hunted with others that prefer to drag out animals whole or literally cut into quarters I have seen generators with recip’s, large bow saws, hatchets or just a heavy bladed knife with a nearby stick used to hammer it through sternum and pelvis, used.

A couple years ago as I was leaving a quick morning hunt I ran into an older fellow that I’d met a couple times over the previous days prior, headed into an area near where I’d been glassing from a bluff. He’d shot a decent bodied muley off a ridge and was circling in below as far as he could get with his truck. It dropped in an extremely rough area! As he didn’t have a pack and was headed in on foot with a small fluorescent toboggan, I offered to help knowing he was in for a rough morning ahead. He pulled out a “Japanese pocket saw” (folding keyhole saw) his son had bought him wearing a 12tpi blade and sliced through pelvis and sternum like butter. I have to say I was impressed even if it isn’t my style. It was a slog of a pull out and for my help he gave me that saw though I tried to tell him I didn’t need it and would most likely never use it (holds true).

For those that like to do things that way I do recommend that little pocket saw and at 6” and 4.4oz it’s not much effort to carry. https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop/tools/hand-tools/saws/keyhole/63146-japanese-pocket-saws

Yep 👍

Yep for the third time. As a side note, I drilled holes in my end handle for a slight weight savings with no adverse issues.

We did that last year. For what we do, which is lopping legs off at the ankle and occasionally cutting moose ribs, I don't think it is worth it. You make the fastest part of the job slightly faster. So you turn 6 minutes of cutting with a handsaw into 2 minutes of cutting with a sawzall. Even fully mechanized, that isnt worth it to me. Now, if you are splitting ribcages down the spine, thats a different story. But we have avoided that so far, and I hope that luck holds.

My vote goes to the stanley sharptooth.

I have used a Gerber Sliding Saw with a bone blade for years. Made in the USA and it has always worked well for me.
