I have been using a hack saw to butcher my deer and from that prcess understand why the bone saw was created. If I am going to invest in something, hopefully a one time purchase, I want it to last. but at the same time I dont want to pay for it to last 300 years. what do you use now, what can you compare it to? (saws you have used in the past) and how would you rate it. This topic would be ideal for someone who has butchered dozens of deer or more and had the opportunity to try different tools of the trade.

I butcher my own and need to cut bone in several instances for example the 2 rear quarters. the hacksaw is extremely slow and too small to accommodate the large animals frame.

i use to disconnect the ball and socket using a knife cutting the hams at a seam to the back strap or sirloin. the lower part of the legs just a hand saw like a jet saw.

I only use a saw for the hooves and like a limb saw for that. Deboneing the hams while its hanging is what I like to do, in the long run its quicker.

Cordless Sawsall (Reciprocationg Saw). Greatest thing since sliced bread. Hindquarters, neck, legs... Quick and easy.

I use a regular bucher's saw to cut off the legs saw up the back bone after deboning everything. Use a stainless blade (no rust) and throw it in the dishwasher after use. I split the hind quarters so I can lay them on the counter flat to debone them by muscle group. I have a Wyoming kit saw that packs up very nicely for back woods trips, otherwise any good bucher's saw works fine.

Hunting Man,
Precisely what I am referring to and why. I can find then all over the net, Just don't know enough to sift the garbage from the quality. Expense dose not always tell you the value of a product.
