I decided I was getting to old and crippled up to be climbing in the bed of my Rhino to hook a pulley on a tree limb, drag my deer or pig under the tree, hoist the animal with the pulley, back the Rhino under the animal and lower it into the bed then climb into the bed, with the animal, to retrieve the pulley system.
So here is my solution. I open the tailgate, tilt the bed and tie the animals legs together.
I then run the other end of the rope through the pulley and tie it off to a boat cleat so I can drag the animal to a near by tree.
Next I tie the end of the rope to the tree as high as I can.
I then drive forward until I see hoofs at the pulley.
I close the tailgate, push the bed down and lock it in place, back up, retrieve my rope end from the tree and my animal is loaded. This weekend was the first time I tried it and it worked like a charm.
What do you think?
