When determining the right type of hunting knife, first identify the type of animals you plan to hunt and any other limiting circumstances your particular hunt may dictate to you. Will you be deep into the field where skinning and quartering will be necessary before transporting your game, or will you have road access right to your kill? Will you be caping out your trophy or delivering directly to the taxidermist? Will you be involved in dozens of wilderness situations where heavy-duty chopping may come in handy?

Having the right tool makes any job easier, and this is especially true when it comes to field care of wild game, a task oftentimes made more difficult by the elements. You don’t have to hunt very often before you find yourself in the dark taking care of a downed animal, and rain, snow, heat and bugs can make the task more difficult still. Plus, the more time you spend cleaning game, the more likely it is that contamination will occur. Proper field care of meat requires efficiency.
