    I had this made at a local welding shop from the same tubular steel that is used in trailer hitches. It slides into my receiver (it even has a hole for the pin) and sticks out far enough to allow the tailgate to be opened. There is another hole in the top bar where a bolt with a heavy duty pulley could be mounted. I havent installed the pulley yet, but I was still able to use it for hanging and skinning the deer I shot this morning. Its great to have if you dont have a suitable tree to hang your deer from.

    The buck was quartering toward me, I hit it just behind the right shoulder which isnt visible in the photo. I couldnt find an exit hole, which is strange because I was using a 30-06 with a 150 grain CorLokt that should have gone all the way thru. The deer dropped in its tracks and died instantly, I think the bullet hit a rib and part of the shoulder bone and just blew up inside the chest cavity.

    That's awesome! After schlepping my buck and dealing with finding a decent tree branch and rinsing bark/moss off of it after it was skinned, I determined that I'm going to build something like this as well!

    I got some extra ideas that'll make a neat and versatile kit.


    Oh yeah.... NICE BUCK!! :thumbup:
