Winch or Hoist
 
Just curious what you guys are using for hoisting deer? Ended my season last week here in Kansas with a nice doe and the neighbor and I about killed ourselves trying to hang it in my garage. Looking at a winch system for next year. Thanks, Bryan

I use a Gambrel and pulley hoist but I would quickly switch to a "Superwinch" If I had the extra funds to spend.... http://mediacdn.shopatron.com/media/...jpg?1294679427

Latest surgery says, I'm done lifting them up by hand to hang in the ceiling joists, so I too will be looking for a block and tackle/pulley system.

I have a pulley system out in one of my trees in the back yard that I created. Go to a hardware store and buy some of that metal cable that is Rubberized on the outside and buy a good solid pulley. The rest is pretty self explanitory. Hang that from your ceiling. I use an old closet pole about 4 feet long and I cut a hole in each of the deer's hocks and slide the pole through.

I use a block and tackle...can lift a two hundred pounder with one hand

Thanks for the input guys. Been looking on-line at Cabella's, got plenty of time until next year to get something in place. Also thought about picking up a plastic kid pool this summer to catch the blood instead of the old trash bags on the floor system I had this year.

Me and my pops made this from scrape laying around.Payed less than $20 for hand winch at harbor freight. I got a 2000# electric winch from there now and going to mount it and use the trailer plug for power

I use the gimble set from Walmart but I just trashed the yellow rope that came with it and bought a 100 foot rope and a boat trailer winch (hand crank). Crank is mounted on the post in the garage and gimble pulley to the rafter.
I like the kids pool idea for catching blood, I've always just wet my floor good with the hose and keep it squeeged clean.

what happens though, if you want to use the truck while the deer is hanging ? :unsure:
