Thread: Carcass trays

    Carcass trays

    Saw these in Homebase.

    Looks very like the green ones I used to get made, but a bit smaller (and blacker) . I checked them out in the flesh, and they are pretty tough. With a smaller vehicle now, I reckon they are just the job for Roe and Fallow does/prickets. A big buck might be a squeeze.

    I have one of these and just the job, though they dont like the really cold weather, mine cracked as i was lifting it fully loaded...still serviceable though and for the price they are good enough

    I got 2 trays from Ikea of similar size and 3 smaller ones for the drips in the larder for a total of 18.

    There was another thread on here that mentioned them. I was in Homebase a few days later and looked at their cement mixing tray. It is only about 3" longer and in my opinion offers nothing better for the extra money. I had a 70-80lb young Sika stag (gralloched and head and feet off) in it a couple of weeks ago and it coped easily. Would not take much bigger though.

    The plaster mixing baths take some beating and are a great shape for a carcass, as well as being easy to lift. They are about 4' long by 2' wide though.

    I've fitted rope handles to the ends of mine also.

    I have seen the clear ones, or similar, but they seemed a bit fragile. Anyway, feeling flush after selling some munty sausages, I bought the Homebase one yesterday which I didn't think was too bad for the money. I like the rounded corners, easier to clean and drag, maybe? I am surprised you say they go brittle in the cold sparko, as they felt reasonably tough and resistant to impact damage. Yet to christen it; maybe friday evening...

    For the roe i phone up the councill every year ask for a couple of the green recycle tubs that we put glass in they are strong and easy to clean. For red's i get a 45 gallon drum cut it in half length ways with stihl saw couple of wholes in at end attach rope then you have two drag trays also carcass trays takes no more than ten minutes to do.

    I bought one of the homebase tubs, not for deer but for mixing mortar.....I have to be honset to stop anyone wating their cash, it was rubbish. I too thought it looked good but first time I mixed mortar it split.
