I have been looking at these also. I think I will go with the 15" . Heck I have been using those little cheepo hunting hand saws until now that only have an 8" so the 15" should be more than enough.

Why do you guys carry a saw? I can understand if you're base camping, but backpack and bivy hunting I don't see any use to it. I can break down a game animal with just my knife. Unless you're cutting wood for the fire... but then again you can break those sticks.

One can use it to cut off the antlers/skull plate or to help in making an emergency fire/shelter. Can't think of any other reason to have it.

why pack out the whole head unless you are doing a full mount. I cut the skulll cap with antlers. The saw is way lighter than packing out the head. Also for our tipi we sometimes have to cut trees to make a tirpod to hang the tipi from instead of packing a center pole, once again the saw is lighter than the center pole. Firewood etc.....

What if you only kill bulls that you shoulder mount? :)

Yes. no need to have the extra weight.
