Capt,
Just how large are the deer in your neck of the woods where you go??

Up north,typical size is about 180 lbs although there are many that go over 200 lbs.

A few years ago,a bowhunter harvested a 305 lbs white tailed buck from a state forest just 5 miles from me. Haul that out of the woods.....it is uphill both ways.

Wayne

180-190 is a large buck where I hunt. 160-165, during the rut when they've got a lot of "running, fighting, screwing" going on...
Best, Capt. Chris

Side note--

Are deer in rut in January in the south?

Up north it is in the fall.

We-e-l-l...

Since Capt. Chris uses two, maybe, could we, think of a "a pair?"

And think about what each might be better suited for?

And "maybe" the option for the first person drawn to buy one or both?

Just thinking, maybe out of bounds, but it is easy to dream.

Remember the Last Hunt Build from Spring 2019? 5-inch Model 3 and Model 5. I got lucky on that one.

So "if" it were done again I would vote for a different pair.

Larry

I wouldn't mind seeing a model 3 get built, 5 or 6 inch.

A pair, like the Capt's, would be cool but it's been done recently. Any reason not to build a model 25? A 25/26 pair could turn out nice

AND, because Larry (& others) have mentioned two (2) knives, add a
#11-3 &1/4” for my # 2 “By GOD, Serious Hunting Knife.” Why not??
