I'll be going in 2013 so I'm wondering what others have used that are light weight but strong. In Alaska you have to take the ribs out on the bone and I know the cheap folding ones I have used on elk in the past while elk hunting will not suffice. Moose are much bigger animals and I don't wan't to waste an ounce of meat and be in trouble. I've looked at the Gerber ones but they seem heavy. With the weight restrictions on a fly in trip we can split our gear that all of us use and save weight but durability matters. Other than that maybe a hatchet? I don't see any weight savings but a dual purpose tool. Any help would be appreciated.Bob.
