Looking to purchase a knife for gutting deer and bear. I see everything from a 2" folding knife to a huge 8" blade marketed as a "hunting knife" but want real world experience and recommendations I don't mind spending the money for a good one if it will last. Also, is a gut hook a good thing to...
Got my first deer ever.
45-70 under 100 yards, bullet went in and out, touching the spine, this fella didn't even heard the shot!
Gutting the deer was much easier and less gruesome than I though.
