Probably a gazillion deer hunters have a pocket knife or 10, maybe a good multi-tool or three and a tool box at home, the truck and deer camp.
We love our tools and want them, need them and have to have them. Whether you’re sitting under a shade tree slicing an apple with your Case XX or getting a saw to split a deer’s spine, we need our tools.
One great tool a lot of hunters don’t have — but should — is available now from Outdoor Edge. The Ultimate Hand–Axe is fantastic for chopping, splitting, setting up camp and quartering big game. Just a few whacks of the ribs, spine or to split hindquarters and you’ll be done. Or maybe you need some kindling to get the fire pot started for the evening sit-around.
“An ax is the perfect tool to have around camp or in your backpack when you need the extra muscle your trusty hunting knife can’t deliver,” said Deer & Deer Hunting Editor Gordy Krahn. “Whether it’s chopping firewood at camp, clearing a shooting lane orquartering big game in the field you’ll find so many uses for an ax you’ll wonder how you ever got along without one.”
The head is hot drop-forged from a solid bar of 1040 tool steel for superior edge holding, strength and durability. The unbreakable fiberglass-core handle incorporates a rubberized non-slip Kraton® grip. The Axe-It comes complete with a Cordura® nylon belt sheath and lifetime guarantee.
