    I guess if you are skinning out for a living (like the old NA bison killers), it's an advantage. If skinning and quartering to pack out in the field, on the ground, even a Buck 110 works pretty well.
    I've got a buck open season skinner that I like a lot. I've also got a Buck 110 and the Paklite skinner and guthook. With a saw I normally take. I usually field dress, because I'm out in the woods a ways. But sometimes I'm able to get it back and clean it by hanging it up. So that's pretty easy.

    I field dress always, even if it's close to the road (and I always shoot does close to the road, LOL!).

    I've never had a knife with a guthook, however, I've watched vids and they sure are convenient and fast.

    A few years ago, I was out with my younger son (way before he was old enough to hunt), and I shot a big doe in the back field of a former neighbor, right at end of shooting light, on the last day of the season (end of November). It was cold, and the ground was saturated with water and freezing.

    She ran out of the field, and died in really tall brush at the edge of the field. So there I was with a 6 or7 year old boy, in the dark, and of course, I had forgotten to bring any sort of flashlight or headlamp.

    He and I managed to drag her out of the brush onto the edge of the field, where I proceeded to gut her in the dark with no light. Managed not to cut any gut, or pop her bladder, either.

    Guthook would have been nice, LOL!
