Stalking

Recommended Posts

I am getting too old for pulling these large reds around. I can get help most days but not today. Farmer loaded red hind into the trailer for me but gralloching from the wheelchair is getting harder. All done before 7pm and shower.  Anyone use a hoist from the tow ball? Any other advice?

The FC stalkers around me have a small electric winch attached to the bulkhead in the back of their Ford Rangers and an aluminium ramp to slide the carcass up into the back. Only dealing with Roe/Fallow round here mind but it would easily pull in a Red.

I have a 12v winch in the barn somewhere. Been meaning to fit it to my trailer for a while. I was thinking more about something that would hoist it whilst I am doing a gralloch. I have just loots at the David Stretton hoist and that looks fab

I have an A frame set up on my Argo, I'd guess designed for lifting reds in. Was on it when I bought it.

Have to admit I've just man handled any in, not that I deal with many reds.

With a trailer ucould just have the a frame against front of trailer and then winch it upright, I'd have the deer on a 2nd pulley so u can lower itby hand easily

I use a smallish trailer behind the quad , the quad itself has a simple boat type hand winch and we have the same in the barn for preparing carcasses.
