    Default Big game lift system

    Hey folks, saw the deer lift at Cdn Tire under the "Yukon" label. Anyone use this? There's one also made by Hunter Specialties. What would you recommend? Do these systems work well?

    thanks

    I had the Canadian tire one you mention and it worked well until I dropped it on day and lost parts to it....Not the best made for sure...... I found the one @ sail is built a bit better/tougher....but they do work and make it very easy to lift your deer...

    If your going to use it at home in the shop or garage I'd just go and buy a cheap chainfall from princess auto , you will have a much better setup

    I have an electric one that works excellent. Up and down button is the same one. Push one way for up and the other way for down. Steel cable with a hook on it for your gambrel and a book on top to hang it from whatever. I love it , up and down with ease, and no lifting.

    Could you possibly explain that further? I looked up "chain fall" in the search at Princess Auto but nothing came up.

    This is what he meant...a chain hoist also known as a chain fall.

    Usually we use a rope hoist... you can get them in varying reduction ratios depending on the number of pulleys... to pull deer up to the pole to hang at camp. I use the same one in the basement when I bring the deer home to skin them.

    Last year we we tied a heavy rope above our pole (beam is mounted between two trees)... fastened a single pulley block to the rope above the pole, passed my winch cable through it, and used the ATV winch to hoist the deer up. 2500lb winch had no problem lifting them up.

    One of the guys I work with does a similar thing for moose; mounts a winch to a metal tripod they fabricated... Set up the tripod wherever they camp, drag the moose back, and hoist it up using the winch.

    I've thought of fabricating a hand winch to hoist deer up using a boat winch and a couple of straps to hold it to the tree. But for now the ATV winch works fine.

    I apologize for bumping this old thread, but I would like to share my experience in this matter...

    I built at the beginning of last season, here is an example by Rage Powersports hoists http://huntingfishingplus.com/best-deer-hoist/ went hunting the next day after I finished it, and in the morning I killed 3 hogs, one of them was 296lb.and it swung perfectly into the truck ... the same day I killed a buck and the only problem I encountered, swinging him into bed, hitting the tailgate



    This pipe sticking out of the tubing is only 4 'long, 2' inside the tubing, 2 'outside ... after I have welded the tube and pipe, I drilled a hole straight through both sides
