Im another for not sawing in the field & save till home but i carry a gerber folding saw with fine & coarse blade for clearing tracks etc with coarse blade & fine blade is good for deer. I hate to see deer split with knife & cant condone it to rough for me as foxhunter can tell you i have a high standard on carcase prep as it not hard when taught right.

A plasterboard saw with wood handle is made of carbon steel with teeth towards the handle same as on a Sagen which is butchers bandsaw material. Costs about 2 quid in the high street tool dumping shops.

I never open the chest in the field. It's just asking for all sorts of contamination when you have a distance to drag/carry/pony a carcass. I keep my cuts as small as possible, one at the throat to bleed and tie off the oesophagus, one in the belly to gralloche. Heart, lungs, liver and kidneys stay in the carcass. They are good eating and good disease indicators too!

Only reason I would consider removing the pluck on the hill is if I'm having to carry the carcass out, where every bit of weight counts. Then the head, feet and pluck all come off!
