    My son loved it out there Mack, he pestering me to go again already.lol I use a a standard 9" Rapala filet knife there only about a $25 or $30 dollar knife but there are great filet knives. The steel has to be AEB-L, 13c26 or 12c27 or something very similar to take an edge like it does. I had a Rapala filet knife blade harness checked at the heat treater and it was HRc-58, my only complaint about the knife is the smooth varnished wooden handle gets slippery pretty quickly, something with checkering would be better. this is the knife I use on Salmon, I could probably make one for myself but I don't know that it would be worth it for me.

    For what it's worth, the old ones seem to be ground a bit better than the new ones.

    I'll admit it's kind of gross but I do believe vultures are actually a good thing to have in the area to clean stuff like this up. When I was a kid growing up we didn't have vultures or coyotes around here. We didn't have a lot of deer in the area back then, once the deer herd grew then we started seeing more and more coyotes and vultures. We're even starting here reports of black bear and even mountain lions in our area now.
