ARK may be a little small but I'm not a hunter so I have no idea. Just seems small.
Maybe check out the Enuff. It is small too, but more handle. Not sure there is enough belly on it for skinning purposes.
That "ARK" model is a most interesting selection and most certainly one I wouldn't dare laugh at. It is a bit small but I can testify as to a couple of times I bagged a deer unexpectedly on the final day of two different seasons and all we had to field dress with on both occasions were small to mid-sized folders. Lucky for us both of them had some curve on them.
Now one blade I've used a lot on deer is my hallowed, first generation, Spyderco TEMPERANCE 1 model. Any time I've got those ( PE & SE versions) of the TEMP 1 with me I always enjoy using that model.
I've also done some serious boning with a couple of my Catcherman models. Also there was one time I helped a buddy of mine field dress and skin one with my XHP Military model. And the C-36 Military is a fine folder for deer hunting. But I do encourage everyone to always have a nice fixed blade that you like and are comfortable using for hard, demanding work like field dressing wild game.
