Had lots of fun with this one...
This year I decided to build my own Game Hoist

Ok I know my welding is not perfect but then again what ever is on it won't feel anything should a weld give way and it hit the ground...

It all started with an idea and a need....I'm getting old and don't want to lift 100+ lb game to the back of the truck



$8 for the square tubing, $12 for the 600 lb boat winch, $7 for the rope, $5 for the ulley and clevises, unprofessional welding was free by me, $10 for 4' metal pipe.

I made the lower half long enough to allow for the tailgate to come down and tall enough to clear the tailgate, even with a three inch body lift... I then inserted a round pipe to allow for a 360 degree turn of the upper half for easy dumping into the bed of the truck

Measurements are as follows; Lower tube from receiver to corner is 28", tube rising up from lower tube is 24", corner brace is 12" on the long side. The Metal pipe is 4' long, Top tube is 4 1/2 ft long then 24" for the top part and another 12" corner brace


The two sections are pined together to keep it in place for skinning or travel and easily unpinned for dumping into the bed









The top has the anchor as well as a pulley to allow for easier lifting. I lifted 250 lbs with two fingers. This can also be modified and un-anchored to allow you to backup and winch the game up or across any ditches, creeks or hills.  Remember to work smart not hard right



Also attached to the top is an eye bolt with rope.  This allows the gambrel to be tied or anchored to the post to allow whatever is hanging to be stationary for skinning and not keep turning left or right on you all the time.  Also helps with swaying while traveling



The 600 lb Winch has a full spool of 1/2" rope. Enough rope to allow the gambrel to lay flat on the ground with a few feet to spare

Dang. That turned out good. Funny though. It sure looks familar. laugh.gif

The only thing I did different is I added (not in this picture) another ring hook to the top corner so that the cable was out of the way of the gambrel. I also used steel cable instead of rope.

Cool...I've built a couple of those.

I can't remember who it was at the 'other site', but I was inspired by a hoist that someone had posted pictures of there. It also mounted into their 2" receiver.

My first one was made from some scrap 1-1/2" rigid conduit, but I didn't like the way it flexed after I winched up the first deer on it. So, I scrapped it and purchased some heavier guage 2" square tubing and built a second one.

I haven't painted it yet, and honestly haven't really used it either. It doesn't swivel like the first one I built, but it's much, much stronger. Hopefully, I'll get to use it this year if I can get away from work some.

I had another idea, and I wonder if you guys have tried this with yours. When you winch a deer up to skin it, have you ever tried tying the hide off to a tree and pulling it off by driving your truck away from the tree? I've been wanting to try it.

I'll take pictures if and when I do!

You will find yourself using it alot more than just a game hoist, I use mine for picking up anything heavy, (lawmower for changing blades, etc.) But one thing ive upgraded to mine to,that those dont have is horz tube from the reciever is butted up against the vertical one, and i welded a nut and a tee handle at the bottom. so i can have an adjustable foot that I slide to the ground, so the trucks not bouncing around so bad when your tugging on the hide. and it really ups the capasity.

That's really helps a a lot boozer. You call it either a stabilizer or an out rigger.

Most lobster fishermen aruond here have these hydraulic hoists on their trucks. The tide drops 30 feet from high water to low water and they use these to lower bait and hoist crates of lobsters.
They are great for hoisting deer too!
