Solo hunting solution

Post by Carnivorous » Mon Jan 21, 2019 5:57 pm

I often hunt solo and the last buck I shot was really challenging loading it in the truck on my own. :?

I had some princess Auto gift cards that needed to be spent. Didn't hesitate when I seen this!! :thumbup:

Will also come in handy skinning bears as long as they are not in excess of 350lbs!! :)

That's cool! You could probably rig up a couple more pullies and cut the cranking weight considerably.

I have had one for a few years now. Great for loading and also cleaning a deer solo. I hunt all over the US and its nice to pull up to a deer in a field in Ky hook the gambrel onto the deer lift it and then swing it into the bed. It fits mt dodge ram with tailgate down. Just don't forget to pull up the part that drops onto the ground to steady it when you drive away makes a big rut and really slows you down lol

Nice! I bought one this past summer but have not even put it in the hitch receiver yet. Hope it works as well as yours does Robert.
