If you are by yourself, How do you get a big deer on the rack by yourself? I liked to killed myself several times trying to do this. There has got to be an easier way. I usually pull it up starting at the foot step on the atv and end up standing on the rack inching it along and tying it off then re-grip and pull again till its up.
Someone once told me of a way they do it with a small rope and it involved hoisting it up a tree, but it was a long time ago an I can't remember. Its not often I'm stuck out there by myself with a kill, but it does happen. Gutting it would help but you can't do that everywhere.
