Wyoming saws are nice to me they are bulky. I prefer just a gerber folding saw they aren't even close to being as good but I can carry it on my belt and they do the job.

Never tried it on an elk. Buddy gave me a "saw kit". Has a short hack saw and a "wire saw". Works great on white tail deer. Light weight and takes up very little space. I think that the "wire saw" would do fine. Take some effort but should cut through eventually.

I have used many over the years, but the best i've found is a relative to the one Sheridan showed you. This one has a thicker blade and more durable handle. Just a quick search, I found it here on amazon.

At home nothing can beat a sawzall.. But you may want to check around and see if anyone uses a band saw.. This is because if anyone has a broken blade that is sharp you maybe able to get a piece of it. If you are lucky enough you can get a piece big enough to put on a bow saw. Just becarefull when drilling it out to fit it. It is a very hard steel and will take some time drilling. Or if someone you know has a drill press get a couple of bits and have them drill it out. That would make the best bone saw you could ever find.. Good Luck..

I carry the small sized Wyoming saw in my pack when elk hunting. It looks like a hack saw when assembled and has a couple of bone blades and a couple wood blades. It cuts legs off easily and works well cutting out the skull cap. It comes apart and is all in a small case which I keep in my pack along with the game bags. When it comes to field processing elk make sure you use the gutless method.

Well exactly where is bone saw used? I think it is being posted in the wrong place. I am really not getting the meaning of this bone saw. Please it would be great if you could explain.
