In older deer(if you arent going to get it mounted)the saw can be used for the sternum.In younger deer, I just use a knife.
I've always split the pelvic bone with saw. I've also been using one of these to cut around anal cavity.

This is all I have ever needed to clean small game, birds, deer, speedgoats and elk...

(yes, that piece of red paracord is a little worse for the wear, but it helps me find my knife when I set it down on the ground... guess it's about time for a new piece.. lol If I set my knife down on the bed and the dog is around, he likes to chew on the blood soaked knot!)

No shot, I don't bowhunt currently. I took a picture out the window but my phone has a crummy camera and it isn't very clear.

I don't doubt it. An old man I hunted with, God rest his soul, had a knife so damn old and worn it was insane. However, he could field dress and butcher deer like nobody I have ever seen. He could not shoot worth poo, but he could process deer a plenty. One knife, that was it. Don't think he really cared about the pelvic region of the deer until it was time to start processing it.

Gutless

I have done a couple using the gutless method lately, mostly as practice for remote Alaska hunts. It just lets me practice breaking down an animal by quarters, backstraps, neck, brisket, etc.

I do all my field work with my trusty Buck 110. Rib cage and all.

Plus one on the Buck 110. Tried a dozen others over the last 37 years, keep going back to the Buck. The right mix of length and blade style, the clip point works best for me inside the chest cavity. I have an Outdoor Edge SwingBlaze that I love for the gut-hook side blade. The main blade is a drop point blade which IMO is too round for precision cutting and even for the initial cut into the cavity, difficult to use inside. I usually pull out the Buck at this point.

I've had one since the early 80's. They are a great blade, but I gotta tell ya, they are a bugger to sharpen. That steel takes forever to get sharp again.

I love mine.

First thing I do when I buy a new knife, especially Bucks, I rehone the edge to a more acute angle. Then I sharpen and polish that edge. After that, all that is ever required is a crock stick to take the 'roll' off the edge. I do this(crock sticks) after every deer. You can shave with it.
