When you say hoisted, I'm guessing a spreader through the hocks? If so, you simply will have to use your or someone else's while cleaning it. Not difficult once you've done it 5 times or so.

We tie a leg to one of the outrigger poles.

We have a rope tied to the gamble and then tie it off after the deer is hoisted. Works pretty well.

Hanging head down, they may not twist as much.

I cut a hole in the back knee of one leg, run my chain through that hole and lift it so it's upside down. Being able to spin it around helps to get it where I want it.

We've got a place in the back of the lease we call the bone yard.
We have a boat winch lag bolted to an oak trunk, with a swivel up above on a limb that hangs over so we can drive right under the gam hook. Cut slits with the knife at the hocks, and place the gam hook between the legs and hoist it up.
We use a small piece of rope to tie off one leg where it's hooked on the gam, and then to the tree.
It's pretty much grown into the tree and become part of it.
It's head down, skin the deer, cut off the front shoulders, take off the backstraps and tenders, saw off the rib cage and backbones just in front of the hindquarters, and then remove the 2 hams from the hooks and your done.

Deer cleaning is so much easier with the head up! It all falls out nicely and much easier

I agree with ADvTX. I've cleaned deer both ways and head up lets gravity do it's thing. Very quick, clean, and easy!
