not a bad idea on the wire saw........i use the wyoming saw but i dont carry it with me....stays in the truck unless i have something down horns need to be cut off of. after the first trip out with meat and gear.....grab the saw and go back for the rest, however that could backfire if you can get everything out in one trip. if i was to backpack it in from the start i would definitely consider the hacksaw blade or wire saw
When I backpack I use the gerber saw with the retractable saw blade. I keep a wyoming saw in the truck.
That hacksaw blade is a damn good idea, never thought of that.
Does anyone have a good brand of wiresaw? Everyone I have ever tried has been a peice of crap.
Thats what I like about this forum, you guys are spot on. Yeah the wyoming is the best saw but like already stated its way to heavy to leave the truck or home. I use the oudoor edge grizz saw. I believe the weight is quite a bit lighter then the gerber, but still very funcional. I rarely pack out the head unless mounting an animal, usually just skull cap them, so I need a good saw, don't know if a hack saw blade would do that witout me breaking it.But like many here i am always looking for something lighter and better.
Aron, I can't even imagine how long it would take to cut through a bulls skull twice with just a hacksaw blade for rack removal?? (grin) That's insane!!! I'd love to see it!! Of course you can pack a couple hundred # off a mountain too, that's also insane!!! (grin)
