Thread: Heck pack Game transporter

    Thumbs up Heck pack Game transporter

    Hi
    Just thought I would share my thoughts on a bit of kit that some of us might not be aware of. The Heck Pack game transporter from JMS Arms.
    I bought this to keep the wife's soft roader free of the detritus that comes with stalking and to try and ensure best practice when it comes to the hygienic removal of the carcass. It's a fantastic bit of kit, it drops on and off a toe hook with almost no effort. I had a small MJ on Saturday that I would have normal put in the back of the wagon. The Heck Pack was easy to fit in the field, and I was able to transport the carcass to the estate larder with no fuss. Fallow which is what I really need it for are elusive as ever, however.... anyone shooting a larger deer will know what comes with moving it! I know this will make the job much easier and will keep my car clean and bug free.
    The service was excellent from JMS and the kit is great for those of us without a pick up!

    to round up If you are like me, and don't have a pick up truck do have a look at this.

    Gun Mart Review

    I thought about buying one, the only issue I can see with it is transportation for any period, especially when the roads are wet, and in winter, spread with salt. This would render the carcass unfit for eating. It would however be the danglies with a box on top of it. I can see the benifit of moving from shoot site to larder if they are on the same estate/ground. It would be fine for that type of extraction.

    I ended up buying a L200 instead, I can fit 2 Red and a Roe in the back of that bad boy, with room to spare. Problem solved.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    I wonder if there are any Trade Members on here that have access to them at a good price !
    I could use one, but the price seems a bit high for what it is.

    Whinge whinge, just try making a low production run of anything either it is labour intensive (expensive) with no fixtures used or they are made with many fixtures (expensive) and low labor costs.
    Always the same formular.
    Its a kind of murphy thing. They are super to use, just buy it and cut down on the beer for a while.

    WTF Is that St. Martin talking ?
    Oh by the way, you missed an earlier post reference the cost of Blaser barrels and then there is the posts about Mauser barrels then of course the cost of things in UK compared to the US. Your halo is slipping

    I was with Julian the other day. A guy who approached him at the game fair owns a fairly large stainless fabrication company. He wanted to purchase just the tow ball clamp and make his own carrier. Julian let him take all the measurements he needed and off he went. A few days later the chap contacted Julian again and asked if he could purchase the game carrier as well, because after costing it he could barely get the steel at that price.

    Did Julian say anything about using one on his Smart car ?
    I keep thinking about it, but when you add 500 for the tow bar it's getting a bit steep.

    I don't know where this guy intended getting his steel from but I have just bought the attchment and built the carrier from some scrap angle iron I had here, an old bed stead to be precise.
    I now have a platform to strap a carcass to if of the large species, or a platform to take my plasterers bath if I want to carry anything else.
    Saved a few pennies and enjoyed turning my hand to a little bit of 'Blue Peter' work.
