Game Hoist

Found this on you-tube. Looks pretty simple to make and we all have paracord in our packs anyhow. Right!

Personally, I usually do the gutless method. But If you get one down late in the day and know you won\'t be able to get it all out until the following morning, this little thing might be kinda nice to get your quarters or what ever up off the ground.
If your eyelashes don't fall off just from looking at your broadheads, they ain't sharp enough!

Bumping this up. I thought it was a good idea, but didn\'t do it this year. I think that\'ll be changing for next year. Even if you do the gutless method and just want to hang a few quarters that you have to come back for, this would be a great idea!

That is a slick looking trick.  The problem I have is a shortage of suitable limbs to rig the pulley system to.  That could be overcome by cutting five poles and making two A frames with a pole across the top.  That would take an extra hour to cut and fasten together and would take up about twenty foot of parachute cord.  That might be worth the effort in some situations.  In the Pine country strong limbs are usually not available.

I just started another thread about this, but I\'m curious to know what you do with your elk if you aren\'t able to hang it Swede. Do you leave it on some logs on the ground?

I just prop up the parts or lay them on sticks so that air gets all around each quarter.  I am not packing out for two or three days.  I leave parts out overnight sometimes, and finish the next morning.  Spoilage is never an issue.
