one man deer loader

when you become old and weak and can no longer pick up a deer and get it into the bed of your pick up. I carry a 6 foot step ladder or just a regular ladder, put ladder on ground roll 200 lb deer onto ladder pick up end with head facing forword place on tailgate, walk around to the back and pick up ladder and push into bed of p/u. works good when you are by your self with no help.

BUTT,BELLY,BEAK,BANG!!!!

Re: one man deer loader

I got to thinking after reading your idea one of those ATV loading ramps would also work, I had a 174 lb buck that I liked to never get into the back of my pickup a few years ago, I liked your idea....

Same idea, but different: Cut a sheet of plywood so it fits between the wheel wells of your pickup bed. Use it the same as the ladder... Pull the plywood out so it rests on the tailgate and the ground, drag deer onto "ramp", lift the rear of the plywood and slide into bed.
Doesn't take up any bed space so you can leave it in there all season long.

This is why you should always take a kid hunting. LOL

Re: one man deer loader

I keep a glenn's deer handle in my truck for that reason.It's amazing how easy you can pull a deer in the bed of a pick-up with one of those things.

Re: one man deer loader

I have been thinking of ways also . My idea was to throw the drag rope over a sturdy limb , then pull my Jeep Cherokee on the other end of the rope until the deer is above roof level . Then tie it off to a second tree , back the Jeep under the deer and lower onto the roof . This way I can drive to the butcher shop and have someone help take the deer off of the roof . Having a pickup truck would be way better , but we do what we have to do !

Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !
