Best Hunting Knives and Tools
March 10, 2017
Guns may have won the west, but the journey through the Appalachian Mountains, across the Mississippi and over the Great Plains wouldn't have been possible without tools. Some simply made life a little easier for America's pioneers. Others served a vital purpose.
Knives in particular were just as important to a 19th century explorer as his trusty rifle. They still are.
Remember that time you realized you left your knife in camp as you stood over a deer, an elk or an antelope? Yeah, you need a blade every time you set foot in the woods. Other tools may not save your bacon, but they can sure come in handy when you least expect a situation to arise.
A few are simply nothing more than a convenience, a helpful device that makes a job like skinning an elk a little easier.
