all a personal preference.a skinner doesnt really need a gut hook.the gut hook is for field dressing.your better off with a rounded blade poit so you cut cut through the hide by accident. I would check out a fur trapping store/site
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
