Cold Storage Box

Cold Storage Box - 10/13/20 01:20 AM

My hunters did a great job getting started filling our MLD tags
the last few days.

At one point I had six in the box but I am not happy with the hook
placement. Trying to think of something to better utilize
the space. Maybe a couple of rail and trolleys or a rolling rack that
sits on the floor???

Any thoughts?

What you have looks pretty space efficient from here.

Maybe a frig box for the floor to catch the blood and drips. Look pretty good to me also, maybe just more room between carcasses for cooling.

My processor has a metal bar that stretches across the top of his cooler bolted to the wall on each end maybe a foot below the ceiling. Then he has "S" hooks that slide across the bar, kind of like a shower curtain. That way he can hang the deer and slide them back and forth.

That is a great system.

Cut those legs off at the joint, tendon stays intact, and you have more room to hang them with a dropped down bar from the ceiling.

Quarter'em and bag the quarters. Once they're cold you can stack them on shelves.

Based on fat deposits i would say three young bucks and a doe?

I would love to have a cool box at my place. I really need to get a winch set up so i can easily clean the critters.

Agree with the bar and sliding ā€œSā€ hooks if you are looking for more room

Processor is AZ cuts all 4 legs off at joint on both deer and elk, cuts body into 4 parts (not 4 leg quarters) and hangs all 4 parts on one large S hook on a sliding bar
