Anyone here use the Bird Hitch? Saw a video on it and wonder how it works on teal and smaller birds that we shoot in Texas

Does it even work? Or another gimmick for duck hunting?

It does not work very well on smaller birds at all. It does work very well on geese and cranes for sure though.

Unless you are traveling with birds or on a multiple day hunt it is pointless. It is much easier to just cut the breast meat out when you get to your house if that is an option.

No offense but,
I reckon I'm pretty sure that I was cleaning birds before you were even borned.

As stated, its nice for when your situation dictates leaving a wing on for transport and have limited cooler space to store birds when you are on an extended trip.

Small birds are a bit tricky. The newer H2 model is better on Big Birds. If cranes or geese have a broken wing, it makes it a bit tougher. They can all be done on it though. Beats a sharp knofe or shears for legal transport.

Of course, just breasting them out after you reach home is a lot easier, but it isn't always an option

If there is a way to seperate a goose or crane breast with wing attached, that is faster than a bird hitch, without a knife or shears....I'd be all ears on this method.

It would take someone hell for stout to do so, unless there is a trick that I've missed.

The worst part of the hitch is the mess of gut, hide, feathers and blood that has to be cleaned off.

Yea I would be interested in that method as well. Hell it would be hard to breast out a mallard and leave a wing on without a knife or shears.

Yes the guts do make a mess as well. I forgot about that.

I do the same thing quick and easy with very little mess. Here's a video of what they're talking about.

I use the bird hitch everyday I guide. Have for about 4 years. It is SUPER awesome when clients have to transport their birds back home. We don't bring it out during Teal season but it is a life saver for anything bigger than teal.

I cleaned about 80 teal last weekend and used the hitch on all of them. Not really because I need it, but mainly because it is there at the cleaning shed. I am probably just as quick without it when it comes to teal. Especially when they have broken wings!

It is definitely most helpful on big ducks and geese. On teal it's not really necessary.
