My wife and I drew DG719 this year and went down there for the last week of the season. The hunt was a bust and we never even saw a goat, but the machetes we took were the bomb. We had to do a lot of brush busting to get above tree line and these were just the ticket.
Before the hunt we spent a couple of days scouting the area and realized we needed somthing to cut through the under brush. I looked at several types of machetes and got pretty disappointed. What looked like a traditional machete was usually too flimsy and deflected on larger limbs. The longer machetes allowed for more blade speed, but less than accurate swings would place limbs in danger.
After a lot of Googling, I finally came across a site dedicated to knife fanatics. The kukri had a cult-like following. Apparently, the original kukri was designed to remove heads and limbs from opposing forces during wars in some countries in Asia. Given that it could remove an arm, I figured willow and alder brush didn't stand a chance.
We used the Ka-bar Kukri to take out under brush up to two inches thick easily. Usually it only took one swing, but sometimes the stubborn ones would require a couple. I discovered the trick was to grab the branch with one hand, bend it slightly, and then whack it with the machete in order to get one swing removal.
The machete also worked well for clearing camp sites, gathering fire wood, and would have been used for butchering if we could have scored. I would recommend this product to anyone who does a lot of hunting in the thick stuff.
