Thread: a review of my new Fallow/Sika sack

  1. #1

    a review of my new Fallow/Sika sack

    hello all
    after having a guts full of dragging,humping,carrying in all manner of ways the small amount of fallow deer i sometimes manage to get off the little bit of land i have permission to shoot, i thought i would get a Roe type sack big enough to put a Fallow deer in to carry out.

    i put a post on here about what i wanted and was directed towards "poppings " aka Sylvia after a some pleasant emails and phone calls expressing what i wanted she handmade me my Fallow/Sika sack.

    to say i am impressed is an understatment it is 100% what i wanted and the "build quality" is outstanding , from the washable good heavy duty removable lining, the non rustle outer shell to the great quality robust leatherwork on the straps ,buckles and the price ,will make this a sack to last me a life time.

    the sack open is large but folds down surprisingly small and fitted in the horizontal pocket that runs along my stalking coat (this made a great padded seat as well) no trouble

    i had a Fallow doe this saturday (60 lbs larder weight ) and it easly fitted into the sack, i carried it out approx 1.5 mile over fields woods and slopes the sack worked a treat and has been the easiest extraction i have had on my own by far.

    i have no connection with "poppings"aka Sylvia or any members on here (i have never meet any SD members yet ) but feel that the product she produced is very worthy of a mention

    regards....neil

    hi Neil
    what a great write up, as you know i was also impressed by Sylvia's handy work
    here are a few pics i posted on the tread in GD
    hope they help with your write up
    a sika sack, can quite easily take 2 Roe or a Fallow /Sika i also reckon a Red hind would fit
    using a couple of Roe for the demo as the Fallow weren't playing ball



    also has a washable and removeable liner
    1st Roe

    2nd Roe

    tie it up

    and place in sack, as you can see still plenty of room

    then just walk out with the spoils of the day


    Regards

    managed to get a few snaps with a fallow for you
    just a few of the sika sack with a fallow pricket



    just so you can see it can cope
    another thing i use is a Yule sack,
    rolls up small enough to put in a pocket

    and works a bit like this, carry straps on one side

    size comparison next to average size Fallow pricket




    the straps need a bit more adjustment to sit it higher up the back
    a darnsite better than dragging them

    No problems Neil
    just to make it clear the Sika sack and Yule sack are my own purchased from Sylvia (poppins) at current prices
    i hav no involvement in sales or advertising of the said items just benefit from using them as i found them ideal for myself on my ground
    ATB
    PS anything else i can help you with Neil just ask you are always welcome
