    Good Morning, gents :)

    I used to carve a lot, when I was 20 or so, thinking about picking it up again. Got this idea to bring a chunk of bass wood and carving jack when i go deer hunting. I spent many hours sitting on a deer stand every year, figured it would be nice way to kill some time.

    Question: the carving jack looks like exactly what I would like to use, anybody has one? Experience good/bad?

    And yes, I plan to bring some band aids too :)

    I've carved a few Santas and a lot of spoons , ladles , spatulas and coffee scoops but I've never used a Carving Jack .
    I've used normal pocket knives to hunting knives but I find that knives styled like a Mora 106 and a 122 or the Moras are the most comfortable to use .
    YMMV

    Thank you. I always used grafting and budding knives made by Mikov, except for hollowing they always worked for me. The Jack is tempting since it has more than just a blade. I think I will get one and report back :)
