    I really need to up my game. I usually bone them out (gutless method) while they’re on the ground. At 42 I have to admit my back is killing me after 45 minutes of bending over. Certainly works but obviously there are better options!

    I’ve been eyeing the truck hitch mounted options. I don’t really have a good spot for a permanent skinning area at the moment.

    I’ll have to revisit this thread in a few years when we move out to our property!

    Ok, I looked at this picture that a friend took, and my first question is, why am I bending over when I have a hoist to lift things up?
    Is that deer really small or is the hoist really big? Hey, it's a youth hunt. Yes, the deer was shot in the back quarter. No, I don't normally advise shooting deer there...

    I had a 1941 "war model" H. Two fuel tanks, start it on gas, then switch over to kerosene, which was cheaper and more readily available. The 4 cylinder farmall H is slightly underpowered for it's weight, and has a low torque to HP ratio, which makes it prone to choking off without warning if the workload suddenly increases. A very solid, well built tractor otherwise, great for planting, raking hay, and cultivating. I stupidly sold it one day for $850 when I was newlywed, and short on cash.

    Although I never ran my H on the kerosene tank because it was disconnected by the time I bought it.

    Hitch mount hoists work great. I picked up a couple in the off season. Took it on a trip to a buddy's place. Didn't think I was going to be able to leave camp with it, he liked it so much.[​IMG][​IMG]
