Thread: handling large fallow

  1. #1

    handling large fallow

    shot a very large fallow buck tonight.Managed to suspend it with the small 4 pulley hoist i carry,then had to lower it into carcass tray.Lifted one ond of the carcass tray into the disco and juast managed to lift it in
    Trouble was when i got home.Just managed to drag the tray up the path with a couple of breathers in between,Then it must of taken half an hour to lift it into the drinks chiller and its neck is touching bottom of chiller.Should not complain as was a lovely buck to shoot but just wondered how some of you guys manage,maybe you have some ideas to make life easier on the big ones.I am by no means a small guy i am 17st and used to weight train a lot so pretty strong but boy did i struggle

    If I had an real ideas of suggestions I would post. However I have little experience with handling larger beasts alone so cannot offer any more than you already know.

    Much the same as you, the large bucks on my area can get up to 150lbs dressed out. They are a struggle; I have a plank of wood in the back of my truck and use a hand winch to get them on board. Ever tried a wheel barrow to get it down your drive or out of a wood, trust me it works.

    Count down to rib number 7 then cut the bugger in two! easy to carry and hang in the chiller. No rules as far as I know about the carcase having to hang in one piece

    I now await incoming
