Thread: Roe safe??

  1. #1

    Roe safe??

    Iíve been thinking about getting a Roe safe, as sold by Bushware for around £70. I only get stalking occasionally and so thought it might be a good solution for keeping a carcase safe from flies for a temporary period.
    Seems expensive but looks good in the pictures, has anyone got one or used one?
    Would I be better just getting a decent fly net? If so where from?

    I bought one last year - 2nd hand but I don't think it has ever been used. I'm willing to sell it for £35 plus postage if you're interested.

    I also bought one last year and haven't had the opportunity to try it yet. They are huge - you need a good 9ft of height to be able to hang it, more if you want to be sure that it won't touch the floor once you've got a deer or two in it. (This is the main reason I haven't tried it yet - it's too big to hang in my garage and I haven't cleared the outhouse to check the height and space yet) You probably need a good 4ft diameter space too, obviously with more for the access in front to actually get the deer in the bag.

    Seems well made and sturdy, but as I haven't tried it yet, I can't comment on how well it stands up to use...

    Hi Moonraker, if Scott doesnt buy that from you I would certainly be interested.

    Why not make your own to the size that you require or can use. All you need is some 15mm blue water pipe, some scaffold netting, and a handful of cable ties. All available from you local DiY shed, Builders Merchants, or friendly builder.

    I made up 3 about 4 years ago, two large, you can hang a stag in them not problem and one smaller for hinds or fallow for the cost of a few beers.

    Scaffold Netting! Just how big are the flies where you are?
    I thought that stuff had about a 2" mesh?

    Cheers for the info people, I think the size of it may be an issue for me. Might have to settle on a fly net and a bit of a DIY structure for now.

    All things considered, first thing I need is a deer to put in one!!

    Then again, better looking at one then looking for one!!
