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 :D

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

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. :D ;)

I had a look around for this DVD too but couldn't find it. If you let me know where one can buy it that would be great
