One thing I try to bring on a hunt is some 8mm climbing cord, carabiners and some small light weight shackles. Sure saves the

I'm not really sure I understand your humour... sorry. At any rate, if I can avoid bending over for long periods of time, all the better.Rick,
Where ever did you find a draft horse with antlers?
Did you sleep overnight inside it until you found a rough terrain crane to get it out with?
Thanks, but honestly the camera plays tricks with the perspective. Only an average size. But it was all I could do to to drag it 50m to a tree. Once the guts were out it was easy and only a little ways to the skid trail and into the truck. Back truck into ditch, drop tail gate, skid into truck. Once home I used the same pulley system to hoist into a crossbar for skinning and quartering.Brickburn got it right.
That thing is huge. Congrats. Too big for me to deal with at my advanced age.
Yeah you got that right. I can do it but then I have to use the pulley system on myself to stand erect!Hunting alone, often for mule deer, I've had to either quarter or even bone out a buck. Then pack the meat out on my back.
I'm pleased to say that I can still do that!
Nice buck you got there, and I like that idea of hauling it up into the tree for the field dressing and skinning. Working on the carcass, all hunched over, is not fun.
You and me both buddy! At my parents farm I have an A-frame skinning pole with a chain hoist. I can haul up moose and cattle on that. In my garage in town I have an electric hoist. It's great for deer sized critters. Push a button and up they go!We are heading different directions!
Nice. My dream is fit out my huntin' rig with a winch in the back of the box. Inside a bear proof canopy. But set up the ol pulley system at home as well.You and me both buddy!
