Dad was out hunting with the big weather change. Apparently the weather got the pigs moving around as we had three in the trap. Problem was we've got a bunch of pigs running around so letting them out wasn't an option but my dad was alone and I was an hour away.

So had to get creative to get the pig loaded into the truck alone. This is what he came up with.

Glad I designed my feeder to be able to double as a vehicle lift as with 300 pounds of corn it was able to crank the pig up with ease.



step one tie rope to feeder holder and attach to tendons on pigs legs.



step two crank pig up.



step three walk back to truck a good ways and back under pig and look really tired after dragging the pig from the trap to the feeder and walking to the truck.



Step four lower the pig into the truck and cut ropes and your in buisiness.

Step five plan to finally build the game hoist we have been talking about making since the season opened.

Hey, Scott's dad is on this forum also. Thanks for the compliments! I am not sure about the redneck comment. I had confidence that the winch would hold!
