Can I use a chainsaw to quarter an animal such as a lamb or deer?

Saturday, November 6, 2021
Chainsaws are not just for chopping down trees for firewood.

You can actually use them for a variety of tasks but one of the oddest ones we've thought of is using a saw to quarter a beast such as a deer or a sheep.

Say you are doing some homekill and you need to chop your beast up, then a chainsaw will make er.... 'mincemeat' out of the animal.

Can you see what is wrong with butchering a beast in this scenario?

Now forget thoughts of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I know you're thinking about how the meat will get imbued with quality bar and chain oil.

And that meat will then taste disgusting because have you ever tried such stuff? It's not for human consumption.

But do you know what is for human consumption?

Vegetable oil!

So why not give that a go to help carve up the cow?

First, of oil, this is gonna be a bit messy.

So you'll need to drain the standard bar oil from your chainsaw. Replace that with vegetable oil and run it a bit until you're confident that the standard oil has been flushed out.

You may have also already cleaned your chain to make it free from oil.

The real question we should be asking ourselves is do we really want to use our precious chainsaw to carve up a deer's hind?

It seems unhygienic but the truth is, you can do it.

If you do decide to go down this path, be safe and wear protective gear as you normally would when using a chainsaw, and watch out for flying bone pieces, so wear eyewear.
