The way my luck runs---the ramps would fall and the deer would be pinned to my bumper! :o

Good idea. Thanks

I use another method, using a fence puller and some extra 1/4" or 3/8" steel cable with loops on either end, to move downed moose.

An 8' steel cable, with a loop on both ends, to go around a tree and a Come-Along hooked to it, will pull a moose out of a swamp on to dry land etc. , although you may have to use extra cable lengths, depending on how far it is to a solid tree.

The boys all carry a MRSB* in their boats in moose season.

We had to call my son to help us with Kaya's buck last year. We couldn't get it to budge. Never saw one that big.

How do you train the deer to lie there like that?

A variation of the carrot-and-stick technique.

 

If the dear lies there like that on his own, you give him a carrot. But if he resists - if he tries to get up and run away - you shoot him.

 

A bullet works better than a stick.

I told her to stop shooting cattle. My wife and kids bought me a hoist!

I can see it now...(cue blurry squiggly lines)

Slim and Kaya driving home...

 

Slim “Kaya, that was some nice buck! I am proud of you. You beat me again!”

Kaya: “Thanks Dad. Maybe next time you’ll get one instead of that spindly little doe.”

Slim: “That hoist sure came in handy. That big boy was a bruiser.”

Kaya: “Yep, it sure did...Dad, what’s that strange grinding noise?...”

Kaya: Nope, it's the leg on the lift. Did you raise that back up Dad? You know with the weight of that buck and all!

Nope. Remembered the lift leg. The grinding sound is my teeth! :rolleyes:

But, my boss doesn’t have antlers.

My co-worker's Dad has something similar on his S-10 P.U.. He collects deer carcasses in the fall and gives the heads to the DNR for testing. He's been at it long enough to know what's harvestable and fills his freezers each fall/early winter. He had one hoisted in the back of it today. So I guess he's started for this season now. IIRC, he collected about 60 of them last year. All of them collisions with vehicles:blush:
