    I go to scobies direct for saws, knives etc,IMO if you can joint a rabbit you can butcher a deer , the bits are larger thats all, if its for your own consumption it wont matter if you make a cut in the wrong place , go for it, this site may help , no doubt there are other sites with better info, but it gives an idea of the cuts / joints.

    I use a butchers bone saw - you can get one at most decent kitchen kit shops. I know a few of the stalking suppliers sell them - Jagersport, and probably Bushwear. In the field I use a Sagen for breast bone work. Excellent bit of kit - and unlike the others I've seen it has a bright orange handle so you don't put it down & lose it.

    Hi chris
    I use the bone saw available from bushwear. Its about 10 quid i think & find it very useful. Also David stretton does one that is equally as good but costs double when i last asked him about it. His equipment is very good tho. Try the bushwear one, I dont think you will be disapointed & at that price if you lose it youll not break the bank buying another

    That just about summed up the subject pretty well Pete. Butchers saw for larder work and a T handle job for in the field. I use the Bushwear one and find it gets the job done and doesn't break the bank if you misplace it.
    I think Dave Stretton is booked again for the Yorks branch BDS meeting next September

    Sorry for the late reply but i've only just seen this post.

    Northern Tool UK appears to be the cheapest place to buy bone saws. They've got numerous different sizes starting price form about 12, the cheapest i've seen.

    Hi Chris,
    Did you manage to get hold of David Stretton's DVD. If not I may be able to get you a copy. Its the least I can do since you sent me a reloading DVD.
