I'm new here and its very possible someone has answered this question before. IM looking for a good reliable deer hoist. Does anyone have suggestions as to who makes a good one? Have you have a good one let me know more about it. If you have pictures that would be great too.

welcome This has been a topic in the past. There were some pics from the THF crew who bought a hoist or made their own hoist.

Definitely recommend the game hoists made by a fellow THFer, Mr Burns Holt in Georgetown. Link:

Bought one this fall and it worked great on the 2 bucks I got. Showed it to a buddy of mine who lives much farther south and he liked it so much he bought it from me. No problem since I live in Austin. I just had Mr Holt build another for me and he even made it the Aggie version and painted it maroon for me!! I am getting older now and getting a big critter in the back of the pickup is tougher than it used to be. His hoist solves that problem for me big time. It also doubled as the "cleaning station" since the one at my uncle's place has seen better days. Another plus was that we could raise or lower the deer depending on where we were in the gutting/skinning process.

I drove two telephone pole posts in the ground. they stand about 10' each and 10' apart. I put a 4x6 beam across the top and drove a 500 lb eye screw underneath. Threaded a rope through the eye and tied on my gambrel. I back my truck underneath, stick the gambrel in the legs and lift it while my buddy ties it off. Being in the back of the truck you only have to lift about 2 ft.

I updated the system this year by adding a pully up top with a boat trailer winch bolted to the post. Works like a charm! made it easy loading up my big 180lb buck this year!

Are you looking for a portable hoist, such as one that mounts into a trailer hitch, or a permanent camp hoist? I have made a camp hoist from a inexpensive hand winch that I bought at "Harbor Freight." It came with cable on it. It is the type used on a boat trailer. All you need is a place to attach a pulley (I used a tree branch) and to mount the winch. I mounted the winch onto a board, then secured the board to the tree trunk, at a 45 degree angle. It works great. If there is no tree available, you could build a frame out of wood, that is designed like a swing-set.
