any ideas?

You're getting good advice. Tell us how the hunting goes.

Edit: I saw that you got a knife that should do fine.

Good luck!!!

I have a whole drawer full of different knives of all shapes and sizes. My hunting carry knife is a Buck 110 folder. Holds a good edge and is compact and fairly easy to sharpen.

You don't need to spend a fortune on a knife but you don't want to buy junk either. For over 30 years now I've carried a Buck folding hunter. I keep it shaving sharp and I've dress many animals with it.
About 2 years ago I learned a trick for someone somewhere that for opening up a body cavity quickly and cleanly without fear of puncturing any internals the easiest thing to use is a standard utility knife with a carpet hook blade. (made for cutting carpets) I tried it and now swear by them. I use the Buck to do any other cutting and a small pocket saw for the pelvis.

Champlain I sort of agree with you on the Buck. IMO they are a real bear to sharpen buy once you get a good shaving sharp edge on them they are pretty easy to hone and keep sharp. I made the mistake of showing my guide my knife on a hunting trip for mulies up in WY and spent the next couple nights sharpening his knife and the knives of the other guides.
