Just my $0.02 worth, don't use a saw on deer. Deer fat and bones taste bad unlike cows and pigs. If you ever watch cooking shows they always say that the flavor is in the fat. IMHO that is a bad thing with deer. That is why they taste so gamey when a butcher processes a deer. I use a boning knife to remove all the meat, and am careful not to get any fat. If you want the rib meat, cut it out from between them and then grind it into burger. People who come to dinner at my house are always supprised at how good the deer meat tastes.
