All I can say is AWESOME!
I shot a central-Florida public land 10-pointer at about 5:00pm. He ran about 30 yds and piled up. I was about 1/3 mile from my truck, so my buddy and I dragged him to the truck. I wanted to use the tailgate as a table to cape and butcher the deer.
The big game skinner cut through the buck's hide like it was butter. I was able to cape the buck in about 20 minutes (first one I have caped for a shoulder mount). It went very smooth with no unintended cuts to the hide. I then used the "gutless method" and quickly pulled the back-straps, shoulders, hindquarters and tenderloins. Even though this was the first time for me to use your knives, to do the gutless method and to cape a deer for mounting, it only took me about an hour to have everything done, meat in the cooler, and on my way for ice.
A couple of other hunters stopped by to take a look and both said they had never seen a set of skinning knives like I was using. I took the liberty to tell them where they could have a set of their very own. All were quite impressed.
The big game skinner and MAKO combo are the real deal. Here are a couple of pics from last night.
